Price check used sleds

I'm just starting into snowmobiling and have three sleds to choose from:

81 Ski-Doo Blizzard 5500 - has 4000 miles in good shape newer track. $575

Ski-Doo Citation 377 (1980?) Runs Good $300


1977 Yamaha Exciter - friend selling this one. Needs water pump, but otherwise good condition. $400 (with pump fixed)

Are these decent prices? Are there any known problems with any of these older sleds? Any other models to be on the lookout for? Am looking for reliable, cheap, fun machines.

Re: Price check used sleds

Can't help on your choices, but I can tell you what I got.

'94 Polaris XLT, 3000 miles
Good compression
SLP UltraLite Skis
Fox Shox
136" Track
PSI Triple pipes
$1600 is what I paid.

So far this sled has been most enjoyable.

Just my $.02

77 Exciter does not have a water pump,its a fan cooled sled.

The Citation 4500 or SS(377) is a nice starter sled for the price you are willing to look at.So is the Blizzard 5500(503).

Punch Da Throttle and ROOST!!

Re: Price check used sleds

If you want to check out the pricing of thousands of sleds, check out the White Star Snowmobile Auction price reports. I believe the address is www.snowmobileauction.com You can access several months of auctions and get a general idea of what different machines sell for. As a general rule when you get into the older machines, condition is everything. For my money I would save a little more and look into a Yamaha from the mid to late 80's. As a frequent "shade tree" mechanic on my friends sleds it seems that the older machines all have needs and you can easily spend twice what you are looking to spend to keep them running.
