Thanks very much for showing your appreciation of Sergeant Pickle. I bought it auction almost a year ago; paid top dollar for it. Lots of bidders but I wanted it—original but needed some love. Here are a my first pix.
The GFP is selling another just like it at the Ft Pierre auction on September 12. The last photo is a pic of the Ft Pierre quad.

Hondaatvforums is the best place to get your quad right!

Oh yeah btw Mike yeah that’s a swim spa; I shoulda got in it yesterday after I got back from dove hunting yesterday! I slept about 10 hours!

WTG Goober! I wan't one now more than ever. I've been looking around for one but I can't believe how well those hold their value. My only chance to get a decent one is if someone has no idea what they've got :)

Thanks Duck
I am pretty impressed with these rigs but you’re right—they are popular and hold their value. I wouldn’t mind going to auction next week to bid on that 94, says still runs but lights don’t work. I fear folks would run it up to $2K again. But this one was clean! Check out the pic of the brake assembly—they may have neglected it but they didn’t abuse it.

Lol @_Wilson_ that’s a 12 foot swim spa the kids love it.
That's super clean!

It's funny this came up, i helped my new neighbor unloaded one ... Kind of looks like yours...... He. Gave the palet and cardboard to burn in the dragon..... While i was cutting the cardboard up.... I found his one year warranty ...... I called him, he asked me to hang onto it... I said this outa be worth a few dips... He laughed ... Said naw bud you can take a dip anytime... (I just want that waranty) AND he travels a lot... So i get to watch over his place, and take a dip every now and again.

I just gave a spa away , sister in law gave it to us , $8K Morgan Spa, I moved it to the house set it up and never used it much , got tired of looking at it , put it on Craig's List for $2k for a month and got two calls , gave it to a friend

I built in the ground gunite swimming pools for 3 years , the house I had before this one had a 9 1/2 ft deep pool that I built in the yard with a spa on the side with a Teledyne 250,000 btu gas heater set for 105 degrees , I loved it , but the pool I could have cared less for , it was a lot of work and headaches to keep it clean ----my wife wants a pool , she has no clue , with all the trees around here it would be a full time job

Congrats! Looks great, brand new, actually. Terrific job!! Just started doing a little restoration on my husband's 1992 Yamaha Big Bear 350 with only 700 miles. I have to ask you what you used to restore the plastics. My light khaki colored plastics are in perfect condition but are slightly stained and dull. I've read a lot of recommendations on the Internet but would like to know your secret if you are willing to share. Again, Congrats!
