    My 1985 Bombardier Iltis

    Just picked this ol girl up. Previous owner didn't know much about it, he got it from a dealer who got it on a trade in. Has an Ontario title which is nice, I've been told that they can be hard to get plated in ON. Mechanically it seems pretty decent, the brake pedal is soft and the high...
