    $20 Tigershark

    Well as the title says I just bought a 1996 Tigershark Montego for $20! Obviously not running though. When I got their, found the bottem end burried into the grass so it was rusty and dirty as heck. On the inside under the seat i found the torn down remains of a 1995 daytona motor and exhaust along with e-box and basicly every other part on the machine. The pump was also torn down with the housing still attached to the hull. Also on inspection the pump housing is recked and the drive bearings are thrown. So my question, although this machine apears 100% complete, with a bad motor and pump is it worth fixing? Btw the handle bar assembly is complete again just takin apart and thrown in the hull. I got every part with the motor though, carbs, intake, exhaust, waterbox, cylinders, head, bottem end, its all here, just bad crank. I dont know, let me know what you guys think.

    It's certainly all up to you, however for $20 it would be a good ride loaner for a friend

    Yea here's the ad I got it from:

    http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/an...961196977.html

    He wants $900 for the Daytona. Not worth it, it's got the guts of this Montego in it. And it's Sun faded and and full of mud in the footwells. I got a pretty good deal on this montego though, basicly a free complete ski.

    Re: $20 Tigershark

    Thanks, I have started to rebuild the motego and i also threw together a stand for it. So far i have a new throttle cable and lever installed, exhaust installed, old pump is out, im prepping a new pump to go in shortly. I also gutted and cleaned the inside of the hull. Im getting the zipper repaired on the handle bar pad. I also found the mounts for the handle bars and re-mounted them. Here is a picture from last night.image.jpg
