Published: November 20, 2009
The early 1970s were busy days in the snowmobile industry. Sales were topping out at over half a million units, levels unheard of in today's markets. As a result, the market was awash with manufacturers hoping to grab a profitable slice of the pie. Easier said than done, as the time of throwing an industrial engine atop a simple chassis was over, and the market leaders were showing up with purpose-built engines made in Japan and new chassis developed at a furious pace based on experience from cross country and oval racing.
