Homemade snowmobile from Russia

Posted on by 2

Take a look at what appears to be the upgraded version of Santa’s sled. It was built entirely from scrap by a Russian retiree from the city of Kirov and turns out this rather strange snowmobile is ideal for the Russian steppes.

First thing first, the single-cylinder engine comes from an old Yamaha dirt bike and it transmits power to a huge rear wheel instead of a track, like on classic snow ravishing machines. But there’s nothing regular about a junkyard build and this project comes to strengthen the rule furthermore. For instance, the fiberglass seat is from an old carousel and the gear shift lever looks like a wooden Coca-Cola bottle. Other important parts are the low friction skies and the frame.

This junkyard project took one year to complete, but it looks like it can last a lifetime.

Manufacturer could come up a good snowmobile design idea from this one. It’s funny on the first look. But the process of making amazes me.

They really love building up things due to the snow, here’s another one on the freaky snowmobile collection. Hehe.
