Mike Weatherby sent us a couple of pictures of his 86 Polaris Indy 600 LE.
Polaris didn't make many of these machines, so Mike feels pretty lucky to have
one. The sled started out as a standard 600 Indy, but Polaris added some sparkle
to it with chromed trailing arms, bumpers, skis, and other miscellaneous parts.
Mike is sorry to say his sled isn't completely original. Well, maybe not too
sorry...... His has a 1992 Polaris 650 triple in it which has been ported and
polished; the two piece crank welded, ground and re-balanced; big 44 carbs have
been added; along with the red-head and PSI triple header pipes. If you run up
against Mike and his Indy out on a lake, make sure you have the right equipment
or it might prove an embarrassing time.........
Mike lives in Alma, Michigan, and he and his family ride in northern MI, and
the U.P. One of their favorite stops is the Big Buck Inn in Gaylord, and the
Buckhorn Resort near Marqette. He says both are located in "rider
friendly" areas. Mike's wife rides an '88 Arctic Cat Cougar long track and
his oldest daughter rides an El-Tigre 340. The Weatherby's hopes to see more
families out on the trails enjoying themselves this season.
