Somehow, “walking” on the Internet, on the website www.snowmobile.ru saw a homemade snowmobile Valery Pavlovich Smirnov, who I really liked. From the moment I came up with the idea to do something like that, in the end, and realized “in metal”. Principal longitudinal elements of the frame – spars – made of pipe sizes 28x25x2 mm, other elements – from pipe – 25x25x1,5 mm 20x20x1,5 mm.
Engine Chinese LIFAN-188F, with dry centrifugal clutch. Torque on the gear from a cargo scooter “Ant” is two straps, and gear – the caterpillar chain drive with sprockets from 9-th and 21-th tooth (from a motorbike).
Caterpillar width of 500 mm from notebookservice “Ride”, and its drive gears from a snowmobile “Buran”. Skis size 1000×250 mm – metal thickness of 2 mm. Drive shaft and the axis of the tensioning rollers is also from the “Buran”, but with great alterations. Crawler unit with suspension balance shaft and the truck.
