Nov 8, 2014. We had the thrill and honor today of meeting Martin Roy, his son, Brandon, and their friend, Paul-Emile Vachon. They drove 14 hours from Quebec to come here and pick up the 71 Super Star, which belonged to Larry & Tammy Bicigo. Today we understood why Martin was bugging Larry so much about buying this machine. His dad is the one who made them! Here is a picture of his dad, Martin and his brother with the Super Star back in 1970. His dad made approximately 40 in 1971 and a guy from Lansing, MI came to pick up 26 of them to take back to Lansing to sell. Martin even had pictures of the truck and load of 26 machines. .Unfortunately, the Lansing guy wrote a check for the sleds and it bounced. This tragic move caused the Super Star to become a legend. The Lansing guy (they think his name was Lathrop), tore all of the machines down and sold some of the parts. Martin's dad went to Lansing to rescue the sleds, but he was too late. He did return home with some parts, but he lost $26,000, causing him to close the company. Martin still has the very first machine made and took it to an International Show in Quebec a couple years ago and it took a 1st place. Martin's son, Brandon, was doing a search for the Super Star and the picture of the one in our museum popped up. That got his attention! He showed it to his dad, and here they are at the museum today. Larry & Tammy realized how much this sled means to this family, so they were happy to sell it and send it home where it belongs.
