    Windshield was mounted with holes in the two outside positions and slots in windshield for center positions.  Windshield would pivot on outer bolts and slide off of center bolts.  Probably had to loosen screws a little.

    Cool photo!  8)

    It has an actual jackshaft and exposed chain drive.

    Makes sense on the windshield.

    I always thought they looked like cool little sleds. Several years ago a friend had two of them for sale cheap...kinda wish I'd have jumped on them. Isn't there something bad about them though, something like the belts are hard to get, or tough to get on/off the sled?

    Oh man did we have fun with our 250!  In this shot we had graduated to using Moms Mustang 530 20" sled to pull the tube around the yard, but that poor little TC got the snot beat out of it for many winters before that!!

    Very cool picture thanks for sharing that with us
