1976/1996 Polaris Ultra Custom

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

Build something cheap and different that would get into the 12’s, Its actually at 11.61 @ 106 mph right now. Plenty to improve on

What motivated you to start your project?

Tired of grass drag and ice races that always fell apart here. Went to asphalt. Track is open 6 days a week, 9 months of the year. 45 min. from my door

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

I have a 81 SRV trail sled with a 90 HP engine. It weighs in at 470 lbs. I wanted something lighter. This one started with an Ultra chassis that we cut off everything forward of the ft bulkhead. Made a Yamaha style front axle out of Alum to look like SRV them fabricated some very small struts that used Pri clutch springs to again appear Yamaha and fit correctly in the Yamie hood. Everything not needed was removed. End result, it weighs 358 LBS.We then made mounts to put on all the 86 SRV body work handle bar pads, gas tank cover seat etc. Honestly with the hood closed almost no one knows its not a stock SRV.

What are you most proud of?

Getting it done LOL

What do other people say about your sled?

They seem to like it mostly because its different from everything else out there.
