    That is unbelievable. That maybe the only original one in the world. And great condition too. Dale Walksler and the Springfield museum have restored ones and my friends in Calgary sold an engine in the summer. I have a complete engine and trans serial number 52. I was told many years ago that 60 were produced. I wonder what the serial number is on the ebay one? It will have FWD plus 2 digits. ( stands for four wheel drive)

    I'll echo Ross....that is incredible! I always thought it would be pretty cool to bomb through the snow on one of those big ol' toboggans! Thanks for digging that up Ken!

    Cory, if I lived in Canada or the northern U.S. I would consider making a snow tobaggan as a winter project. It would be fun to copy one of the photos we've seen on this thread. Of course I'm assuming you have nothing better to do, have tons of money, old motors, and a complete machine shop at your disposal. . . . Just like I should make a jet ski out of that old Panhead motor I have. They would find your body in the spring thaw and mine would be lost at sea.

    I do have a spare Scout motor I could probably put together for a project like that but I lack the rest of the necessary elements at this point...... If you do decide to build a jet ski do us a favor and stay close to shore when until you get the hang of it and all the bugs out!



    I don't know.... I think this is getting a little cozy.....

    Can someone help me understand this picture?? Judging by the helmet style, the machine appears to be driven by a German soldier, and his passengers seem to be a couple American GIs, and a pair of British doughboys. I can't seem to come up with a circumstance in which this would've taken place!
    The photo appears to be authentic to the WW-II era, so what gives??
