YEEEHHAAAA...........fall is on the way

Live to ride, ride to live.

EDIT - OK - I have decided to sell my kid transporter, we just aren't using it since the kids are getting a bit big to go in it.

The cover cost me $250 alone...so I am looking for $350 CDN.

You'd think that a guy with 3 kids and his own business would not have so much time on his hands, but I find doing this sort of thing relaxing, and fun,
not as fun as ride'n but just like prepping my sled for the season fun.
I more posted this for anyone who would like to build one for their future sled-heads, feel free to contact me for details on it's construction, even if yours will differ, i know my kids and I are going to have a blast on the trails this winter.............God willing there will be 5 feet of snow will fall on Nov 1.

That thing looks awesome. If I had any use for a sled of sorts, I'd inquire about how to build one.

Fall is here, we've been combining the last couple of days. Almost raining now, had a shower this morning, so it's killing time until we can go again.

oh yeah, and my bro has to go back to school
Fall IS here




Ride the Best!

Looks good... how fast do you think that you will be going with that?? Have you considerd a wind sheild.. it would probably get pretty cold back there...

Yes SH.......there will be a windsheild,
I am having a full canopy sew to go over the tubing frame.
It will be very similar to the canopy you see on boats,
black vynal on top, back and on the bottom edge of each side,
but clear see-through vynal for the front panel and the top 20 inches
of the sides just like windows on a car.
Brake and tailights will also be mounted on the back.
BTW, anyone ever tied into the tail lights on the back of a sled
for wiring up the tailight on a toboggan?
Speed, 30 - 40 mph on the lake or open trail.

That is cool. Do the seats have any kind of cushion? I imagine it will be a rough ride if not. I like the idea though. Hey, does anyone know of someplace that sells tubes to pull behing the sled? Not just a tire tube, but something like you pull behind a boat but tougher.

Lol, a little wood stove for it. Looks like it will turn out good. Keep up the good work!

Froz'n...yes the seats are padded, 2 inch foam covered with 4 way stretch -35C black vynal, and 1 inch foam on folding seat backs.
Got a call from Dad a few minutes ago, he just picked up a brake light to go on the back...so wiring is in the works too I guess.

Still looking to sell this toboggan to someone in the Regina Saskatchewan area....my kids don't fit any longer & it's a great little toboggan going to waste in my garage.

Make on offer....I just want it to get used & make someones kids grin.
