FOR SALE: 1979 Scorpion 440 Sting and 1975 Scorpion 340 Lil Whip - $375 (Grand Forks,

Hi,
I have a 1979 440 Scorpion Sting and a 1975 Scorpion 340 Lil Whip for sale.

Both are in both run good and are in fair to good condition. The Lil whip has a recently installed 0.020 overbore kit.

I also have a 1980 Scorpion Sting parts sled. Hood and seat are in bad shape, and it has a bad track. The motor has .010 oversize pistons and has never been run since it was rebuilt (I have not needed it). The suspension, driveline, etc. are all in good usable shape.

I am asking $375 each for the Sting and Lil Whip.

I would like $100 for the spare rebuilt motor, and the parts sting is free if you buy the Sting.

Thanks,
Ryan

I made some errors in my original post and I corrected them here.

Attached are some pictures of the snowmobiles.
