This is one Dad had bought, then I bought it off of him. Apparently it's for making cross country ski trails? Don't know, but "had to have it". Meyer built. No serial or model number that we could see and I am not able to find any more info on it via the web.



Some homebuilts by my Dad:

For ice fishing


For pulling behind the Voyager. Dad is driving, my kid sister and I are on the sleigh. Dad built it, I helped bend the runners.

Below is an early '70's Sno-Cruiser fiberglass and aluminum cutter, all original except for a few added reflectors and stickers. It was built by General Aluminum Products out of Charlotte, Michigan, a company that produced fiberglass garage doors and extruded aluminum products. I found this one in a cottage garage in excellent condition with the original seat and windshield.

I love the way they hypen-ated everything in the '70's. I wonder if it was availible in avacado-green or burnt-orange!

EricR, hyphens were so much cheaper back then...

Check this recent prototype sled out.  I even got to design and build the seat for it.  It will eventually have a more vintage looking hood.
