Original 331 V8 engine, 47,778 miles. It has some issues as it is an older restoration. Speedometer needle broke off, Brakes need to be bled after winter storage, Gas gauge sending unit doesn’t work. It is used regularly, I make multiple events yearly and entertain the neighborhood quite often.

I have owned this unique piece since 1994. Always garage kept. Easy Rider magazine photograped the Caddyshack at the Pumkin Chunkin Event in 1990’s. In 2008, it made a 600 mile trip from PA to NC. Recently, May 6, 2011, spent a weekend at the High Country Motorcycle Camp in Ferguson NC.

No matter what the event, the crowd is always interested in the Caddyshack. It is time for another owner to have the experience.

Email for more pics or if you have questions. Also available the old fashion way, call Dave at 321-258-4833.
