not sure if everyone will want to hear me babble about old snowmobiles or not. I know most folks in the south have probably never laid a hand on one but I figured I would show what I got anyways. right now I think I have 5 at one point last year I think I had a total of 10 or 12 one from each brand almost back in the seventies there was more than 250, now there is Polaris, arctic cat, ski-doo I think that's it. anyways I thought if anybody from the north here has any stories about old snowmachines you can post them here I would like to hear them! now here are some of my bueats. snowmobile builds/  and future projects  20210911

Watching from here. I’ve had a couple of old machines, never rode one except to test the engine out on the road in front of the house. 
I have always thought that the drive train would make a GREAT drive unit for something like a mud machine or whatever.

I did a little work on my 75 Polaris colt resto-mod today built a custom front bumper out of the old front and rear bumpers I also added a brace to the grill to keep it from breaking and falling apart, a little backstory on the machine is a year and a half ago I found the colt sitting in a guys yard he told me it had been sitting for 28 years or more, anyways I ended bringing it home and got it running and had a blast riding it around last year so this year I decided to make the old girl better I had to find a replacement chassis because the one that had been sitting for 28 years was rotted with more holes than swiss cheese. the new one is almost immaculate with almost zero rot. the fun part of the build comes in when I decided I wanted to spare my back from the zero suspension she originally had so I found a late 80s Polaris ultra 10 indy suspension to slam in fast-forward to wright now I am getting the new chassis ready for paint and testing track fitment and such It should turn out as a very fun sled to ride when I am done!snowmobile builds/  and future projects  20211016

thanks, I am super excited to use it I have to get a new end for it but other than that it should work great for building stuff. like the garden tractor pulling sled I would like to build to test my pulling tractor.

It should work, but a part of me wonders if it will be a brittle point due to the heat? Nice welder dude though!
