This Weekend: Vintage & Mid-School Arctic Cat Auction


(9/3/2015)

Siebens Family Auction of Arctic Cat stuff.

Arctic Cat vintage (and mid-school) collectors have a treat in store for them this weekend near Eagle River, Wis.

There, an estate auction for George Siebens, a 20-year Arctic Cat dealer from Illinois will take place in which many cool, old Arctic Cat snowmobiles, parts, clothing and assorted stuff will go home to the highest bidders.

Brand new, never-started Jags; 634 Hirth Panthers (with Montana pipes!); Trail Cats; Kitty Cats and more will find new homes.

Perhaps yours?

I attended the auction, with Ken and Becky Kranz, who out-bid me on several items!

Many of the sleds went for more than I expected, given their condition. From memory (I didn't write this down): 1970 634 Panther sold for about $1,200; the 1969 Panther 440 Hirth sold for about $1,300; the "never started" Jag also went for about $1,200. A 1971 Lynx 303 went for about $800. As is always the case with an auction, I guess, the sleds were a quite a bit crustier in person than they appear in the photos. One of the big signs was cracked and taped up, the panels for the older-style sign had been removed from the frame by the time of the auction. The two race capes were not in great shape (lining had come loose at the hem) and brought $375 each. One gem of the sale, IMO, was a Medallion 120-mph speedo for a King Cat with 2 miles on the odometer that was sold for about $250 as part of an entire shelving unit piled with wear bars and cleats and odd parts. The speedo was immediately sold off as a side-deal for a very friendly price to someone I know who has a King Cat with no speedo. There was a Sachs 303 recoil in very good shape with some junk in the bottom of a milk crate was sold for a few dollars and then also sold on the side to a guy who just wanted the recoil. I picked up a 1969 Cat suit that fits me well and is in great condition for $70, and a NOS windshield and base strip for a 70 Panther for $20 from a guy who bought a entire shelving unit of parts. Ken and Becky scored a bunch of literature, some suits and the Cat dealership shelving unit. The oddest item at the sale was a service rotisserie, a two-piece stand that would pick up the entire sled and allow it to be rotated, which I guess could be handy. It sold for $900, much more than I would have guessed.

I also was at the auction, me and my friend went Friday afternoon to view everything. After coming back Saturday morning I noticed a lot of parts were moved from shelf to shelf or missing all together. Yes I did sell becky that kk speedo, I have 2 NOS ones already and she is a nice lady. All in all it was a good day.

Charles and Buddy: Thanks for the post-auction update!

How many people attended the auction? And how many people appeared to be bidding for the Cat stuff?

Glad I didn't go. Fisticuffs would've broken out between myself, Pluedy, and the Kranz's.
