  • Sled:1999 MXZ 670 HO Toni Haikonen # 169,174

Posted 20 January 2015 - 02:44 PM

Hey everyone - I thought it would be a neat idea to create a thread to discuss the sled of my dreams - the '99 MXZ 670 HO Toni Haikonen edition. I bought one of these new back then, but sold it shortly after because I was getting married/had to buy a house and all that jazz. Now, 16 years later I bought one from a nice boardmember here, and I quickly remember why I treasured this particular sled so much. Loved everything about it - the power, the aluminum tunnel, the numbered low windshield, the brass numbered plate, the custom graphics, the black idler wheels, the aluminum bumper, the hood cutouts around your shins with the removable foam plates for cooling, EVERYTHING!! . I'm trying to restore her to original as much as possible, so I'll do the best I can at keeping you updated :) Right now I'm looking for the original windshield, so if you have any leads please let me know! Also, thought this would be a cool place to put any ebay/Forum/Craigslists finds for the sled, and a place where we could keep track of who has what. Chime in if you own one and I'll add it to the list. Let's have fun!! Here we go:

Then again in the Club Ski-Doo News in the Winter of 1999:

I believe he said he's throwing a parts sled in as well. May be the parts sled in the close ups

The ole arm tanker:)My first modern new sled was a 98 Mxz 670 with head cut,cyl shimmed, shorten y pipe Don Emery mod , UFO's in the 40roundys,clutching,wisecos,144up the middle.Won 700 improved class grass drag circuit till I met up with a 670ho..got me by 2 500'..Was a big Haikonen fan and actually met him and his team in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.He and his team were chasing snow doing testing they said.Pretty good time my buddy was talking smack because he a had a pretty quick [email protected] the time..anyways always wanted this numbered rotary valver.Found one locally a few yes back so I went to check it out,pretty rough it had been beaten down.I wasn't really into it,then the guy said she runs good take her for a spin out in the field.So I did had a grin ear to ear in helmet.I couldn't believe how it felt and I honestly thought it had a big bore kit for sure,but I didn't say anything to him till the deal was done.I asked him if motor had been freshened Cuz it rocked,he said well I was told its a 720 Cuz I'm beating 800 twins with her,but didn't know for sure.Anyways I had to know so I tore it down&it was an original 670HO standard bore with 5200 miles..Lol..Note I had been riding factory racer 440's since 01'& this was back in 09' Lol..I ended up selling it thinking I'll never find a good one.Wrong:) I ended up buying this one for my girlfriend knowing she wouldn't like it&want something tamer,well she rode it 2 seasonsons&loved it.First trip she broke blood vessels in fingers&had blisters from 2days of riding in upper peninsula.Well she's on a mxzx440 now&this sled is pretty much retired as it is my collector.I'll be dropping in a Russ Lemke mod 114VP race gas motor in to trailer it out to Lostpines Lodge on Saturdays for some drag racing action but its trail days are over for now.No I'm not selling any of the stocker parts..Lol..sorry for the length of this post but I have a love affair with the RV670's...

Awesome story onthepin!! Can't believe you found that beauty locally! I'd really love to find a collector one someday - something that looks like it just came off the showroom. Onthepin & black-doo - how many miles are on each of yours now?

 

Love the posts & stories - keep 'em comin!!

Oh yes, I know that border quite well - used to make a lot of trips across the 401 when I was younger when we went to visit my aunt & uncle in Woodhaven, MI.

 

And here's another one I missed a little while ago...think it's still for sale in Wisconsin:

I have a very nice 99 670 HO but have never heard of this special edition. What is the difference? Some of the photo's on here look just like mine.
