The hood is getting fiberglass work and paint. I am ordering the decal set, 1st pic is how it was, 2nd is how it will be.(minus the liquid motor in the second, I am going to be rebuilding an original 250 2-cylinder, hard to find parts.)

I also have a newer skid and track coming, can't use the original cleated track in oval racing anymore. New pair of Northstar race ski's, and a general cleaning and go thru. She runs great.

Dude that thing is awesome. And there is nothing like doing a restore or a good cleaning.

Thanks guys, just happy to have some time to work on it. The pipes are going to be blasted and repainted black, and will end up coming back out thru the foot rest, that is how a lot of them were when they were raced.

sick sled dude. those old snopros rock.

i have a 250 F/A twin out of el tigre sitting in my basement. it still has the pipe, dual carbs and clutch on it. i was gonna use it in a go kart or even a minibike someday, but its got no compression at all (overheated). my dad was telling me that the 250 was the fastest sled they had back in the 70s-80s, supposedly 90mph.

Pipes are done, I decided to make a custom dash, mounted the Tach on the handlebars, re-bent the bars for oval racing, wire brushed, and painted them.

Now I have to make the skid wider to accept a standard 15" track.

it looks like it has little wahl drag skis on it? if they are do you want to sell? are you gona be running the 20" north stars or what do your rules allow for? in my opinion idk how you will like those bars when trying to corner her, alot of guys run bars like these so they can lay over the front of sled more.

Make sure you got it ready for the very first snowfall and be the first on the lake or it kinda sucks. I got to run 3 tanks of gas thru mine last winter on 3" of virgin snow just before Christmas. Unbelieveable experience. Not THAT fast but holy crap what a hoot a 9000 plus rpm motor is when on the pipe. Throws a neat little rooster out the back as well. 2010914124336906_10531.jpg

I have a set of brand new northstar ski's I will be running. The bars don't feel to bad, just have to get my hook put on the left side. I will see how they do before I make anymore changes to them.

Zrxpilot, that thing just looks fast sitting there. I just got a hold of a 1976 Z 250 motor. It is stuck, and gonna have to tear into it. That will be a project for next year.

Thanks!

Dude thats REALLY neat, good job!
Thanks dirtydan,

Got the handlebars bent and painted and my hooks on. I am currently working on cleaning up the new skid that is going in it, and got to put on the different drivers.
