1971 Rupp Magnum 800cc
With Joe Francis
One of the most successful racing sleds in Rupp history is pictured here - the 1971 Magnum.
Brand: 1971 Rupp Magnum 800cc
Owner: Joe Francis Manistique, MI
Motor: Tohatsu F/A 800cc
The 1971 Magnums featured tuned pipes, Keihin carburetors, a triple chain drive system, a slide rail suspension, and a pleated racing style naugahyde seat. Rupp characterized their sled as being "mean-looking, like a race-bred winner." This example, an 800 model, is completely restored.
In Joe's own words, "I purchased that sled from Tom Metsa in November 2004 and have given it a complete restoration. We took it to the Eagle River show and won Best of Show with it"
