Here are the pics I have of the chassi s I bought off ebay. It was a Doo/Amsoil sponserd sled for the 2000 year. They did a reallly nice job on it. It's suppose to be way strnger than stock and 20lbs lighter. What do you guys think? Oh I paid $1476 but he's taking a couple hundred off since he doesn't have a secondary or primary for the chassis as I though. Which is coll as I intended to replace it with a aftermarket or Arctic bearcat anyhow. I don't really know what to llok for on a ZX so all hep will be greatly appreciated, keep in mind it is  race dept race chassis.

I won't be racing it on a sno-cross track. But it will be thew home to a tweaked 809.
Paul,
    what is kawky? i hope it's a good thing but I doubt it. Any thoughts about the aluminum rivited around the exhaust? It looks like it's for strenght ore durability or is it stocl like that?

I'll find out when I pick it up. The guy doesn't know much about it other than what he can see. Like he can't tell the shocks,etc. He's a get on and ride guy. But it's a steal at $1276. And the 809 @ a grand.

Nice buy!

Chassis looks good, don't worry about the rivets around the exhaust.

Short lug tack- double studded up the center, nice lake racer.

Do yourself a favor and save a headache later - inspect the drive chain and spockets, replace as required. Check jack shaft bearings, inspect drive shaft bearings and replace as required. Other than that, you have the perfect platform to build your dream machine. I wish I had her!

good luck!

It looks like the belly pan was busted off around the exhaust and they riveted in aluminum.

All the bearings and bushings will be replaced no matter there condition. It'll have a new jack shaft and a Arctic Bear cat secondary installed. I'm going through it from top to bottom. Yes this is the sled from Cromwell,Minn. I'm picking it up during Haydays it looks like. I'm buying a complete conversion kit from Chris Bondie in Canada for 1,100us. Crank shop makes the pipes for aroung 900 nickle plated or lesss as Tim(zmachman) is trying to become a dealer. And it has a 1.250" track and 144 studs down the middle.
so here is the approximate breakdown:
chassis                           $1,276
motor                               1,000 809cc
Crank Shop pipes                   900
conversion kit                    1,100
Arctic Clutch & jackshaft        500 or less
Bearings,bushings,hyfax,etc     300      
                                     ~~~~~
                                      $5,076 total for a kick butt 3x3 Powered ZX Screamer. If Doo won't build them I will!!!
