Just thought I would share my 1973 Brut LC44. I bought it three years ago. It wasn't in too bad of shape when I picked it up and after a little bit of time on it, it looks pretty good. I got a new windsheild and clutch for it after the pictures were taken. When I get it out this year I will get some better updated picture of it.

It had 338 original miles when I bought it now it has 340 I think. Pretty sure its one of the top 5 lowest mile Brut still around. I dont have any conformation on this though.

those sleds were way ahead of their time.
i always liked the lc brut sleds.
the guy who designed them was an ex polaris employee.

Yes Brut was started by Polaris employees who broke away and decided to start their own company. Brut motors were even built for them by Fugi. I beleive some of the very first ones even used Polaris 295 free air piston. That is right they were way ahead of their time. They had the laydown engine 30 years before the Firecat did. First liquid cooled production snowmobile. I beleive they also were the first to utilize a jackshaft. And the also had the secondary hard mounted to the motor to avoid clutch misalignment because of torque, something redline used 30 years later on their sleds
