Learn something new everyday I guess. Sounds like something polaris would do though.

    WheelHorse, Yes it pivots in the center, it is just like a leaf spring with a slide on it, pretty neat





    Thats is a very interesting rear suspension design. Wonder how it works?

    Does it pivot at the upper mounting point.

    Its neat to see all the oddball ideas they tried back then.

    Here is the Presidential SST that I dragged home this fall. It has since found a new home.

    Thanks Dale.    It is now locked for entries.    Any new entries please wait for next years thread.     

    Moderators please send me you pick for winners and I would appreciate knowing what page the picture is on so I can post the picture with the winning sled.     Thanks for the help and good luck to all the entries.   Doc

    I don't envy the judges, lots of great finds this year. I went through a few weeks back and tried to make a top 10 list... ended up stopping counting after about 25 that made the list...

    Got my 5 pics in today, had to go from a list of 35 to choose. Actually every sled is cool. The good part is they are being saved!

    Had a list of about a dozen "finalists" to pick from, tough call because a lot of finds were special in their own way.   Nobody should worry about their finds not being good enough, going through ALL the sleds makes it interesting.  8)
