good prices, but they don't have any good service techs. I always buy there but don't let them work on my sleds

Bought two sleds from them and some parts. Bob has been good to me even was able to try a sled out before I bought it. ( local snowmobile club 5 min. down road ) I have not had any major service done there I do most my self. I did have problem with lights on my 2009 tubo sb and they replaced at no cost a few days after warrantee , they made it work, exteriour lens. Good pricing. My friend just bought a 2010 new cat 570 fan loves it no problems had few miles on it 300-400. I am not real sure on service, kinda far for me anyway.

for the prices he has on sleds especially when he wants to unload some its worth it.no one comes close to his prices.the service is ok but cofiells would be the best bet for any service but there sled prices are up there.

If your buying a cat or polaris there is no cheaper place to buy them cause bob unloads them quick and cheap! Service blowsssss! My buddys have bought 5 sleds from them since 07 nobody can touch his pricing but they also try to fix stuff themselves

I recommend Google searching the business your interested in spending your hard earned money at.
Shark Cycle owner in jail? - Band Of Riders

Sure it was a few years ago, but where's there's smoke, you'll always find a fire.

that's no secret, seems he paid his due and still in biz...always has the best prices so I have no problem buying from him of course you want to make sure there's a legal title as is for anywhere you buy. I'm sure they watch him closley now too...

I've been doing business with Shark Cycle since 2004 seeing that they are the local Polaris dealer. Bob's business certainly has a checkered past, but they seem to be a little more honest these days. I will say they have very competive prices. Bob likes money and doesn't seem too interested in the little people. His focus seems to be on selling machines. I guess I'd say their focus is quantity not quality.

As far as service goes, no one compares to the repair shops located in snow country. I don't think there is much for experienced techs down this way. Seems there is a new crew of staff every time you go back.
