• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"


    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

Hi my buddy has a 2005 Polaris edge chassis with a 1500 Crankshop motor in it.
The hole sled was build by Jack Struthers from Carls Cycle in Boise Idaho.
All the Suspension parts are made by Holtz Edge products
Carbs are made by Cutler performance
has a Team secondary on it
oh ya it also has a 75hp shot of Nitrous that has never been used.
The motor was built off a 1200 water craft bottom end
The track is a 162" track
Please feel free to ask more questions because I might have forgotten something.

He was looking at selling it and was wondering what it was worth?
Any help would be great

Whatever someone will pay. Unfortunatly with the mod stuff, you are better off parting it out unless you find someone that just HAS to have THAT sled.
Usually a clean stocker will go for as much or more than a mod with ANY amount of time and $$ invested. .....a guess on my part without seeing it or details.....$5-6K ????? Also depends on how quick he wants it to sell. :beer; JMHO-
