I found this Shrew at the Washington State Expo in Puyallup this fall.
1969 Boatel Ski Bird 15Posted 06/27/14 at 11:44 AM
It is hard to find a Ski-Bird. But it is very hard to find one with a good 15" track. It took a while, but I found this 1969 'Ski-Bird 15' in great shape. It was sitting since 1972, and last registered in Utah. I bought it in Yakima, WA from a fellow who got it for back rent on one of his storage units. He let it sit another 15-years at his business until I brought it home.
I first thought to show it as an 'Original Survivor Class', but in the end I could not resist restoring it back to original. Over the years the hood had yellowed, and paint faded into several different shades.
Still it was in excellent condition, and an easy restoration. The fuel tank had no rust, and the funky fuel cleaned out easily with lacquer thinner. Chrome was in new condition. A great find.
I plan to ride it some but mostly have it in my collection of 'Birds' and the Grand Prix. Boatels are funky old sleds that did not make it big in the snowmobiling world. But they are unique and fun to get back on the snow.
1983 John Deere Trailfire LXPosted 05/29/14 at 02:40 PM
I've decided it's time to start this project. When I picked up the Trailfire and Liquifire, I intended to wait until summer to start the restoration process. But every time I walk by them in the shop I get to thinking.... plotting..... planning......dreaming...
So let's get the party started!
