1982 Kawasaki LTD

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

Go fast and win.

What motivated you to start your project?

Love the old Kawasakis and their short impact on snowmobiling history. Everyone remembers those old snowgoer covers, but you hardly ever see Kawasaki represented at vintage events, swaps, etc.

 

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

Turned back exhaust under the bellypan. We didn’t want the obnoxious sound of straight stingers, but needed free flowing exhaust system. Ran the trackside pipes into a modern Skinz can, down through the bellypan,, but turned out back to avoid blasting grass everywhere on the track.

What are you most proud of?

Unique sled that turns heads, and competes with the top sleds in the country.

 

What do other people say about your sled?

Everyone has a Kawasaki memory to share. We’ve heard every tall tale of invaders that ate up their buddies….,(fill in the blank)
Brought in the team green colors from motocross world (and tournament of Champions snowmobile event). Announcers always love the green kawi showing up on the line.

    I’m a Kawasaki lover to and these to me were the best sleds ever made. You are right, these sled could even eat up some of the newer ones. I think they made the biggest mistake in Kawasaki history. I have to of them and they are mint 1980 4/6 invader LTD and a 1982 550 Interceptor. I love your sled.
