Glad they figured out a chain guard by the end of the film. Wonder how they presented this ad back in 1926?

That thing rocks. Could use it to commute in snowy New England these days.

Why has this passed into history? It seems that it would be a viable alternative to tracked snowmobiles.

I though this would be impossibly retro, but actually it's an extremely clever design.

have to agree, it seems to work very well, with many features. seems sturdy and stable. how does it maneuver/handle compared to a "modern" snowmobile?
