MF Ski Whiz

Recommended Posts

I’ve recently acquired 3 MF ski WHIZ. All stored indoors for 30+years. 400SST, 304, and one other. JLO motors, not seized up. Put away in pretty decent condition.

Are there any interests in these machines? I can post up some more photos this evening if so.

Located North or Peterborough .

Probably more interest in the red models than the black sled since they're earlier versions.

Are they complete? I noticed a missing carb in your pic

Might be interested in another restoration project.

That’s what I figured.

I have one carb. Otherwise they are complete. All lights front/rear are mint. I’ll post some more today.

My dad bought one in 1969, it was our first sled.

Was the recoil always broken ?  When I was a boy, the neighbor just used a bale string.  That was when my friend and I on that sled would ride over the fence lines from field to field in the deep snow of the 60's.  It rarely got stuck.

Neighbors across the street had one... Big John (dad) was the only one able to pull it over. 3 of us kids could just barely pull the rope out ...

I don’t think I will be parting them out. rebuilding a home, just don’t have the time.

Can definitely take reasonable “package” offers on the 2 reds.

440 SST and a formula III 

 

I mainly want these gone as soon as possible.

Had one many years ago.  Wish I never sold it now.  Recoil would last about three pulls before it broke.  Thank god for electric start

That's why our father's 335 single got nicknamed 'The Pig'. We could pull the rewind, but nowhere fast enough to approach starting it.

Ours was a '70 that you had to remove the gas cap to take the hood off.
