Mark Morissette's '86 Polaris Indy 600 - Limited Edition
Here's a few pics of my 1986 Indy 600 Limited Edition for your Reader's Sleds area. I purchased this sled off the showroom floor new in '85, and have been enjoying showing it off and riding it ever since!
Some persistent and very expensive engine problems put it up on the blocks for the past few years, but I decided to dust off the cobwebs and fix 'er up this year. After procuring a recently bored and rebuilt '89 650 engine, (complete including carbs, for a mere $400 Canadian!), I dropped it in this fall, and the machine is now awaiting our first snowfall. I'll do the necessary repairs to my original engine next summer and re-install it to keep the "originality" of the sled.
Short of the engine, the rest of the sled is all original, and is in virtually mint condition - There's only a little over 6000 miles on it.
You can find Mark cruising the trails around his Oshawa, Ontario home.
