Hello Everybody- Thought I would say "hello" and share a few pics of my 1963 Thiokol Spryte 201.

Got out for the first time this season on tuesday - headed up to Signal Peak outside Globe, AZ

Are there any other 201 owners on this forum?

Nice looking cat.

The dog is cute as well.

When I think of AZ I think of snow birds from WI in scottsdale sunning themselves.

Welcome

Very, Very Nice! Some nice custom upgrades... Probably a 201 out there somewhere, but many Thiokol cats of all kinds and a lot of expertise...

Great looking snow and views - envious of the snow, need some of it here!

Welcome - looks like you have a great job to give us some great pics while you're out... and maybe videos!

Thanks for the warm welcome!
I bought my 201 a little over 3 years ago. The guys I bought it from got it at a govt auction and did the bulk of the restoration as a hobby and for access to their cabin in the winter. The county started to plow their road and they no longer needed the little cat. Around that time I was working out of a snowmobile (poorly) and was looking for an upgrade. I was just about to drive up to Idaho to buy a cat when they listed it to sell. Kind of wierd to find a cat in my own backyard of Phoenix AZ. Since then I have been working on upgrades to improve relyability and functionality. Funny thing is now that I've had a cat for a couple years I cant figure out how I did my job without it- so much so that I am looking for another one! Guess I got the bug.

Then-



Now-

That's a pretty cool little cat! Nice job and welcome to FF.

Now, on with the rules. First, Rusty has no business over here so feel free to bash him 'just for fun'. Second, Big Al is the Kristi guru, so feel free to make fun of his bathtubs! Three, we're suckers for pictures so post as many of your cat as you can, especially with that view!

I own a model 201, just finishing putting it back together. Will post pics soon! I do have questions, your drive sprockets look different than mine. Are those original? thanks

As far as I know the black sproket is original and the yellow one is a copy that was made from the original. I would have to look back over the recepts I got in the file to find out who did the copy. Post some pics!- would love to see another 201!

Nice 201. My dad had one back in the early 70's. Wish I still had it. Welcome to FF.

Nice Machine..... Your drive sprocket looks different than what I have
we have one new original and now we have a mold built for that style but
could you post a picture of your sprocket it is hard to see in the front profile

Pic of my sprocket, looks different than other model 201 sprytes I've seen on the internet. My rubber is weather checked on the sprocket face and may not last through the spring. I don't feel like paying Fall Line 800 bucks to make them urethane coated.
