JANUARY 6 - 2007
David: Wanted to jump on and contribute to your great site!
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
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,
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.
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
used the Rupp's from my dad's dealership to help promote the YMCA at the
local shopping mall. Notice the big
Love the site! Best regards,
