Old Homemade Crosley SnowMobile

Mike <seller432@...>
 

Just picked this up today a old homemade crosley snowmobile,guy said he got it from out behind a old barn were it sat maybe 20+ years.  Its crosley drive train and frame right up to the trans mount then it has a angle iron rear frame. Rear diff has sprockets with made chain drive track. Front ski's are old culvert pipe cut and flattened. I had to have it,just because it was neat and sported a crosley drivetrain.  I'm going to try and fix it up for a toy around the yard.

I like it, lots of backyard engineering. It would be a big hit at an engine/tractor show or a Crosley gathering.

It's rough shape but i'm going to try hard and fix it back up again for a toy around the yard.
