KEVIN HANCOCK - OLYMPIA - WA
KEVIN HAS BEEN HELPING ME GET THE FACTS STRAIGHT ON THE 1967 AND 1968 SKI BIRD.
HERE IS SOME OF THE INFO THAT HE HAS SENT TO ME.
- Here is a picture of my friend standing next to my two Ski-Birds when
we picked them up in North Dakota.
David - No, thre is no year on the information tag.
have two owners manuals, one for the 1967 and another for the 1968. The
manuals show the difference, and I have other literature (advertisements,
Sno Goer articles, repair manual) that show this one to be a 1967. I found
the Sno Goer test write up on your website. The picture on the front of
the article does not have the stripe, but the hood design is the same.
I am in
1968 models had a door in the front to access the fuel fill, the hood is
taller and had the optional engine cover (as seen in the ad you sent),
also the fuel line intake to the motor is different. I have a 1968
Ski-Bird 300 that I will be restoring for trail riding and have matched
that one to the 1968 owners manual and advertisements. It is different
than the 1967 in
The 1969 is has different hood design with front vents and skis, while the 1970 was called Mach X. I had a Mach X I got for parts. It had the 1967 skis, the 1968 hood, the seat was reversed with the tool kit in the back, the seat back was different, and back rest support was chromed.
YOU KEVIN FOR THE GREAT PICTURES
A DONATION OF $ 5 OR $ 10 GOES A LONG WAY.
ANY CONTRIBUTION IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.
THANKS - DAVID
