Restorations and Tributes

The restoration of vintage sleds continues to grow in popularity. This page provides a look at those who have chosen to restore their sleds in the likeness of the Widow Makers racing iron. We're honored to present those builders here and provide the well deserved recognition they have earned.


1973 EXT Arctic Cat by Mike Prescia

1973 EXT 340

Mike Prescia, in Ellenburg Depot, New York brings back the excitement of years gone by with this outstanding restoration of a 73 EXT. The final touch of the #2 Ken Young artwork, make this a real eye catcher!



800cc King Kat by Andy Avelis

1971 800cc 4 cylinder King Kat

Pictured at the 3rd Annual Great Eastern Whiteout, Everet Regal, age 71, sits atop a pristine King Kat with his life time achievement plaque presented at the show. Also pictured is Andy Avelis of Newbury, MA who was gracious enough to invite Everet to take the beast for a drive around the race track and pit area. Along with this four-banger, Andy owns one of the most impressive collections of vintage Cats, you'll ever see. About 40 to date, with each at the top of perfection!
