1974 Raider Eagle

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

Objective was to restore the sled close to original but also to upgrade components that were prone to poor/weak machine design.

What motivated you to start your project?

My dad and I saved this sled from rotting in a field for 25 years. The motivation came from seeing how badly it had gotten from the elements and the final vision of what it could be with a little elbow grease.

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the sled?

The front suspension was widened 6” on each side from original ski stance to add stability to sled. Original metal ski’s were replaced with newer plastic ski’s.

What are you most proud of?

Most proud of the final product and how closely it resembles the initial vision of the sled, from the start of the restoration

What do other people say about your sled?

“Sled should of been scrapped”
“Can’t believe this is the same sled”
“I’ve never seen a sled like this in my life”
“You should be proud of your vision and craftsmanship”
