The 50 Dollar Arctic Cat

Well heres the El Tigre 530 I picked up for 50 bucks. My brother fixed the recoil and she runs now. My friend did take it to his house and was going to buy it, but his dad went ape on him so I have to take it back, but thats fine. It runs pretty good, but still could use a carb cleaning. Also, the lights dont work, nor the kill switch, so somethings messed up with the lights. I MAY keep this sled for a mess around sled because its a 530 and should be pretty zippy, but knowing me ill have it sold when I get back from michigan. There were two bee nests in it but those are gone now. Its weird because we werent getting any spark, then i turned the key to the 'off' position and it got spark,, yea i know, weird. Well heres a vid of it..
and some pics. The other pics are of the 87 I had, which was a total POS.

Yea I highly doubt an old 530 even with the twin pipes is much over 70 hp if even at 70 like RJ said. I'd say more like 60-65 hp, maybe a little more.

But the only real way to tell would be to stick it on a dyno.

Dude you are really lucky. That thing is pretty awesome for 50 bucks. Did you even have to do anything to get it running? I wish I could find deals like that around looks like a good sled to beat on and have fun. Thanks for showing us.

Sleds in my area are expensive. People still think they can get $1k plus out of wedge Indy's. I saw one guy had a 1990 Indy 500 and he was asking $900 and said in the fall his price is $1700. HOLY COW!! That's a $500 sled max! I found an '02 ZR 600 for $2k that was super clean which was a pretty good deal but I don't have that kind of money.

Yea my brother fixed the recoil and a few pulls and she fired up. In fact, ive been gone for a week and im going to go pick it up at my friends house right now. I would think it has atleast 70 hp. Come on, its a twin piped, i THINK reeded, 530cc liquid cooled.

You actually get less power compared to a single pipe

try going on craiglook.com
you can put in how many miles away from you the search will go and it pulls up every ad from craiglist that you searched. i cant be that much north of you(1.5 hrs from wi/il border and i have got a 06' fusion for 900 bucks, ripsaw track for 60, 02' xc 800 for 800, my brothers sled for 700, and a whole bunch of other stuff

Its a proven fact, any stock motor that you put twin pipes on will go slower compared to the single pipe, do some research

Don't straight pipe it.The stock pipes are specialy made to create back pressure what a 2 stroke needs and gets it's power from!Find some stock pipes for it.
