Re: Another 600 single springs to life

Here are the only pictures I could find of the hood rebuild. Both sides were bowed out badly. I had to make a series of cuts from front to back going almost through each side. That allowed me to clamp each side to a flat surface and then I applied two full layers of sheet fiberglass and resin to the...

Re: Another 600 single springs to life

The handlebars were broken on each side by the dash panel so I cut the welds away to loosen the panel. I then cut the tubing on both sides and removed the bars and dash panel. I trimmed up both sides near the firewall and bent new handlebars. I machined alignment bushings to tightly go inside the tu...

Re: Another 600 single springs to life

Here are a couple more pictures of the muffler. After smoothing the welds and painting it looks great.

Re: Another 600 single springs to life

I didn't have a muffler so with the help of Bruce's specifications, I built one. Knowing that the od was 4 1/2 inches and 4 inch pipe is the same od, I cut off the proper length and chucked it in the lathe to bore out the center so as to get the proper wall thickness. This is a bit extreme but i try...

Another 600 single springs to life

It's been a long process but I have recently finished restoring a 600 single track. I will post some pictures of the process, but I somehow lost some important ones. The machine was stripped down completely and the metal parts were suspended in a 300 gallon electrolysis tank for rust removal. It is ...

Re: HUS-SKI 600 cost

Just noticed this post. Did the $849 cost of the 600 single track include the seater?

Re: 600 recall period

I'm going to check out the Snow Dogs in a couple of days just to see what improvements they made. As for my 600, I will probably join a vintage club around here and ride on groomed trails to various events. That is not to say that I won't try it in deeper snow. From what I hear from guys with newer ...

Re: 600 recall period

Thanks Barrie. I figured that you or Bruce would reply. I'm still trying to figure out why the singles were so dangerous. I know that they were narrower than the twin track (tank) versions that most people were used to but I would think that if you kept in mind that they were tippier and rode them a...

600 recall period

Does anyone know how many single track 600's were made before the recall? Somewhere I was told that 200 were originally produced before that happened. Is that number correct? And also I think I read somewhere they were made in 1964 and sold as a 1965?

Re: clutch springs

Just letting you know that I searched the archives and found specs and pictures of Salsbury clutches. Mine is a 700 series and I found a NOS spring kit for it and it is on it's way.
