1973 ALLEY CAT 8 HP KOHLER 305 CC 4 cycle
I have this sled running & the hood & decals are finished. This sled is made up from excess
factory inventory, 72 EXT seat & tank, Puma chassis etc,  giving rise to it's nickname. Still
looking for a nice belly pan.  Only about 50 of these sleds were made.
October 2001 - Now has correct windshield and seat.  I'm sure going to miss that gunny sack
seat cover filled with straw, and held in place with two crossed bungy cords.
January 2002 - Blew the mag crank seal, motor is now rebuilt with new seals, etc.
1975 TRAIL CAT
10 HP Briggs & Stratton 4 cycle motor, electric
start, picked track, top speed about 18 MPH.
(Not to be confused with Arctic Cat Sno Pro's)
Only about 229 of these sleds made.
Finished October 1991

This sled has now found a new home with
Cindy & Wayne Kuster, Grand Forks, N. D.

DON'S VINTAGE CATS
744 JLO FA Mod (purchased in 1999)
This is a mod engine that came from the factory in a
1969 Panther, some time in January 1969.  At the time
it had a big mouth hood,  twin megaphones,  twin Tilley
carbs with modified 372 JLO cylinders.  It uses 100
over pistons & probably had milled heads from the
factory, To date, there are believed to be 6 of these
engines in existence.  I plan to install it back into a
1969 Panther, hopefully during the summer 2009
