Last year i bought a 1980 polaris centurion for 120 bucks. Best deal i think i ever got. I thought it ran good after I bought it, but found out it was only running on 2 cylinders. Put $125 into it, brought her home, and she runs like a champ. It has 1979 decals, but also has some 1980 decals(look on the belt gaurd cover, the handle bar pad had an 80 too, but fell off.) The model number states its an 80, but also with a 79 engine. I know it came from the factory like this, because it was bought from a local polaris dealer inearly 80, then sold to a guy i get my sleds serviced at in 1982. From there a guy bought 2 sleds from gene, the polaris, which gene serviced every 2 years since 1982, and an 73 eltigre 400, which my buddy owns. Gene sold them for $800 each in 82. heres pics of the sled, i think its neat being a 79/80 model. If anybody knows any info, let me know, i wanna know everythign about this, its my first polaris resto. If any buddy has the following parts for it, that'd be awesome
trunk assembly, tail light assembly, windshield, windshield trim, handlebar pad, non faded gas tank, triple pipes, air box,
I'd also like some clutching tips, so the sled will have a lot of speed, i know itll do 100 already, i just fixed the steering, im sure the stupid rods gonna bend again, i think for this winter im gonna ride it, and then tear the whole thing apart coem spring!!
