i am selling my 1978 arctic cat El'tigre 6000 snowmobile, this would be perfect for a restoration or for getting into vintage sleds.
the 6000 has a l/c 440 engine and is pretty quick, its also fairly rare.
this is not a running sled! a coolant hose fell off and it over heated, the engine needs a new piston (clutch side) and a bearing also, i don't know what bearing went bad but you can hear it if you start it. it has good spark and everything just low compression. ( i have taken the head off to look at the damage, that is how i know it needs a piston)
the rest of the sled is ready to go, and the seat is in great condition, almost new. the hood was painted by the previous owner and needs the hinge re-attached but that isn't neccessary to ride it, thats how i bought it and rode it for years.
i am selling this cause i bought 2 newer snowmobiles and wont have the time to fix this one like i wanted. it has been stored on a trailer under two covers so its still in fairly good condition. i would love to see the sled restored by someone who is into vintage sleds.
text or call 810 543 5556, a text is preferable, ask for jeff
