I was doing a bit of research and saw that there was a Roll-o-Flex distributor located in Marcy, NY. Does anyone know if there were any others in NY or Ontario?

What about dealers? I think there was one in Elgin, ON

About 10 years ago, I bought some parts and a banner from a lady near Niagra Falls, in NY.
She said they were a dealer...I don't think I have her name anymore....

Hully Gully was also a dealer in southwestern Ontario. They still exist today.

Hully Gully has quite the history it looks like.  Lots of racing photos and different sleds, very cool!

 Grin  The Roll-O-Flex Dealer that was in Marcy NY was the one who started there own snowmobile called the Bearcat  it was made from a apex chassis very close to the Roll-O-Flex and Cat  chassis there are very few of them around today ... the first ones were made in 1973 ..only a few in 1974 before the shop closed in 1974 maybe a total of 25 ever made ..models were.  I own a 1973 Bearcat 292SE  (Cub Model) 291cc twin Hirth ..working on the restore right now ..


                      292SE   291cc Hirth
                      340SE   338cc Hirth
                      400SE   399cc Hirth
                      440SE   438cc Hirth


             All were the Hirth Sport series motors with the Salsbury 850 racing clutch , custom color combinations to suite customers  ..Located on Rt-49 River Rd Marcy NY ..The one in the picture belongs to Dan Sahl here in NY ..Dan did a great job with a ground up restoration

I do remember the Marcy NY dealer very well. Actually I think he bought truck loads as a distributor would. The front hood lines look VERY familiar as does the bumper, and what I can see of the bulkhead. Nice job overall Dan.
