Re: 200

For the seat, I traced a new piece of plywood from an original seat. Installed new T nuts for the bolts, painted the wood red and gave it a coat of varnish to seal it. Then I sent it to a professional upholstery shop along with an original seat so they could duplicate the stitching pattern. It turne...

Re: 200

It’s been a very busy summer and I haven’t had too much time to work on this hus-ski. I have made some progress. I did fit all the body parts together and everything fits nicely but that’s all I have completed on the body so far. I did not have time for media blasting and painting. I got the seat an...

Re: Hus ski quality control

new carriage bolts, new rivets and washers and 3 coats of varnish. In the following pictures you can clearly see the discrepancy in the location of the rivets. Also in one of these pictures there is a misdrilled hole in the ski for a rivet.

Re: Hus ski quality control

I was refurbishing a pair of original skis with the original runners still on them. I removed the runners to re-varnish the skis and replace the rivets and carriage bolts. The reason I was replacing the rivets was not because they were worn but because they were extremely rusty and were about to fai...

Re: Race ski seater (sleigh)

This is a picture of the Hus-ski that was used with the race sleigh although in this picture it has a standard sleigh. The fellow in this picture worked at the Hus-ski factory in Montreal (although I don’t believe he is the person who actually raced this Hus-ski??). Also, it appears to have a 400 ho...

Re: April Fool's Day Run

Looks like perfect snow conditions , perfect weather , beautiful trails , awesome sleds... it doesn't get better then that! As to which looks better in flight, that's a tough one to call. Both pictures are worthy of a magazine cover!
