I had a chance to ride a 69 snowjet 250 ,71 nordic 399 , 74 olympic340, 75 olympic 340 and a skiwhiz which i don't know the date and which we transplanted the snowjet engine in. we also had part of a motoski which was turned into a motowheel for summer
It took me almost 2 years of saving and got a good price at that time on the sled. MSRP for it was $595 and the dealer let me have it for $520. $75 was alot of coin back then especially 14 year old. I wonder if me coming into his showroom daily had something to do with it? But than again it was on my route so had to pass it. Out of all the sleds I have had. I have to say the Elan was probably the one I had the most fun with. Saved up and bought a tach, speedo and snow flap for it. I was putting almost 3k it a year. Ran like a top. The only probelm I had with it was the fuel inlet on top of the gas tank was plastic and Doo had a problem with them plugging up. Put a metal one on and that solved it. Only other thing was the gas cap rubbed again the hood and started a spider crack. I grinded the cap some so that the part I grinded faced forward and solved that one.
