1976 el tigre

I promised some pix when I finally got her out. We got snow on Friday (2/24) so I had the sled out today. 1976 el tigre 4000. All stock, 3800 miles, a true survivor. She runs excellent. What do you guys think???

I agree with everyone else had one back in the 80's, loved that sled eventually had a Rupp 440 liquid in it, quite a sleeper on the traols back then, and finally a 521 Rotax but was far from stock by then. Still have parts of it here. Made a mold to make hoods without the grille in it which is still around here somewhere. Had a lot of fun with it.
