NORTHWAY HISTORY BY ANDY TAYLOR
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE YEARS IN MY STORY REFER TO
MODEL YEARS AND NOT ACTUAL PRODUCTION YEAR.

In the fall snowmobile magazines of 1969, there are rumors of a new snowmobile
manufacturer that will build a new design snowmobile for people that want
something different.

But once released on the market these lime green sleds built on an aluminum frame had
no real innovations and the estimates of 4000 sled sales the first year were exaggerated and
well above the actual production of 760 units and 550 sales.

Two series of sleds were offered for 1970, the first being the GO series with six models built
with a 15 inch track and offering six engine choices and one GO series 18 inch with
a 440cc engine.

Also offered were the Mach series.  One Mach with a 15 inch track and a 340 cc and two
18 inch Machs, one with a 440 cc and the Mach 3 with a monster 3 cyl..800cc Hirth.

Due to the low interest in these 1970 models Northway founder Stan McRobert hired
a top design team to completely redesign the sleds for 1971.

1971 Models.

Finally here was the innovative sled we had been promised the year before.

A Two up seat, completely enclosed engine, slide rails as optional equipment
and a hood that opened from the front like a car.

The production plant was also moved from Dorval to another
suburb of Montreal by the name of Pointe Claire.

2000 of these new models now being offered in yellow, lime Green and Red
were built and a distributor in the United states was established.

New names were also in order the first being MK-1 built with 15 inch tracks
and offering CCW and Sachs power from 250cc to 440 cc.

Then the MK-2 with an 18 inch track offering engine from 340cc to 640cc.
