    Tommy Bonacci's Bullet Pre-X4 Factory Racer

    I'm pretty pumped up about twisting my friends arm until he sold me this thing. I love old Seadoo racers and the history of it all so this ski is really hard to beat. I know of Tommy Bonacci from the old magazines and Bomber eyewear of course. Bullet was one of the few factory sanctioned race teams and I'm told this hull is what BRP modeled the X4 hull after. Many of the greats had their hands in building this thing like Miller, Skat and Novi. I'm happy to say I've got every single little piece of it(once it arrives safely) so I don't have to wonder how it should be. The plan is to restore it to the condition it ran the National tour in. If any of you remember it from back in the day please post what you know here.

    This is a pic I found in an old mag but it's the only one I have of it at this point.



    Here is what it looks like now.

    Yeah the hood is cool. They have holes cut in the bucket for the air to come in and a hole at the bottom on a hose that dumps water under the bond line there on the right side.

    Thanks guys. The shipper is picking it up this morning. The Seller is "going to mail me the paperwork". Paperwork on a race ski? Pretty cool, I guess Seadoo issued it a VIN.

    Do you guys have any ideas of how I could get more pics of it back in the day?
