JANUARY 6 - 2007

David: Wanted to jump on and contribute to your great site!

My dad was a Rupp dealer and attached are some articles I have of his from 72'. Since Rupp's are what I grew up riding
and in my Blood, my mid life crisis has kicked in and I have been collecting Rupp's with the help of an understanding wife.

What's in my Rupp collection  includes  2-72 Yankee 440's,  2-73 Yankee 440's, 1-72 Rally 440, 1-73 Nitro 440, 1-71 Sprint 34,
1-71 634 WT, 1-72 Yankee 295, 3-72 Nitro's (295,340,440), 1-71 Magnum 400, and a 75 Nitro 440 to go with 75 Rupp Centaur trike
with a factory equipped 340 Rupp snowmobile engine.. 

The two articles are from when my dad was a dealer.

He is in the first picture with his staff featuring a full Rupp lineup of 72 Sleds, (Note the 72 Nitro 440 in front). ( SEE ABOVE ).

The second is a picture with the mayor of Waukegan Illinois (on a 72 Roadster 2 mini bike), the Rupp Factory Sales Rep, and my Dad. 

The third is with the mayor on a Rupp go cart and the Police Chief on a mini bike doing a promotional fund raiser for local YMCA. 

One unique thing I found was pricing for the sleds on the back of the business card I sent with this email. 

The business card is the only one left in existence that my dad has and the prices for the machines on the back of this card
seem laughable now by today's standards. $1595 for a Rupp Nitro 440 down to a Rupp Rogue for $795.

They used the Rupp's from my dad's dealership to help promote the YMCA at the local shopping mall. Notice the big 
Rupp lighted sign in the backround. Hope you find this stuff interesting. 

Love the site! Best regards,

Brian Landsverk - Waukegan, IL

THANKS BRIAN FOR THE GREAT PICTURE!
