If fishing is a sport are we considered athletes?

Looks good.  :thumbsup:

I need to put some of those skid bars on the bottom of my DX. With snow not always being in the picture here, it's getting chewed up from dragging across dirt/rocks.

Itís geared way down so it has a lot of power for such a small engine..
 With me and another 200 pound guy in it I would say about 8 mph..

Thanks. :) I need to do something with it or I'm gonna end up wearing holes through it one of these next couple seasons. Rocks and that plastic aren't pals.

Great build Dom. Every year I threaten to buy or build one, always so many other things with my attention. Are they still under the registration radar in NY? Hard to believe the state hasn't jumped on the gravy train yet. And at a blazing 8 mph, better enforce helmet and insurance laws too.  :P

Nice build Dom. You will really enjoy the effortless trips across the ice. Work great for hauling firewood and deer. I get a lot of use out of mine.

Yes sir! Calamity Bob is coming out of summer storage this weekend or next. It's perfect for early and late ice which is about all we get here. No good in snow over 10" or so. What I'd love to have the track sled for, is to fish your area without needing to drag a snowsled in a trailer up the thruway.

Looks awesome RD! I've also been awfully tempted to make one. My buddy sent me this pic he stumbled across somewhere on the interweb...  as a John Deere guy I love it!

Very cool build, Dom. As an owner of one, I would suggest shortening your hitch bars a bit. You are going to find that steering these is best/easier, the closer to the middle of your sled you can stand without having to reach forward for the handlebars.
But, like I said...very cool build! Thanks for sharing!

Props to you on a nice build, reminds me of one a relative had when i was a kid that had a kohler re-coil motor on it. Saw em coming from the other side of Houghton lake w/ the smoke trail , but it hauled what he needed
