Homelite forester

Any idea out there as to the value of one of these in decent condition? I've got a chance to grab one. And who made them for Homelite? They look like a Polaris of the same era Thanks in advance.

Homelite built them in their own factory.
It is likely that they bought many of the parts from Polaris. but many of the sleds of that day looked similar.

Thanks once again RJ. Any idea as to what it might be worth? I would think its fun to see one, but no one is really after one.
