I need to stop going to swap meets.  Just can’t resist.  Amazing what  you can pick up at times.

Nice score G&G, looks super clean!  I gotta admit I've never been a fan of a red Ski Doo, but these pluses are growing on me.  A few weeks ago I found one locally on LetGo for $100 but it was so neglected I decided on passing it up.  If I had more space I would have picked it up for the engine alone. It hadn't been run in quite a few years and was sitting on a wooden pallet that was fairly rotted.  I think i drove away in disbelief and a tear in my eye knowing I couldn't save this one.

Went to the swap looking for 73/74 Moto Ski parts, came home with the plus.    Has a fairly new track, good seat, hood etc.    Seller said it ran but flooded.    Turned out to be a small piece of plastic burr caught in the needle seat.    Primer needed replacement too, other than that runs great.  Only thing left to do is pull the seat and check out the gas tank; I’ve see a few formulas develop leaks around the fuel float sending unit.
 
Price was too good to pass up; rationalized it as being my parts mule for the other sled.    Might wind up giving it to a bud back in Norther Minn to use as a cross country ski groomer puller.    Previously supplied him with a 90 Safari GLX that began to overheat.

The comments on color are interesting.    I’ve wound up being drawn to particular sleds because of the colors (73 TNT F/A, 86 SP, the plus, Moto Ski orange).  Also repelled by anything purple.    Funny how that works; good to know I’m not alone in my flimsy rationale.

Nice looking Plus for short money Al. It really doesn`t look like a leafier:) I allways figured the all red early 90s plus was a "KEWL" looking sled.
