Hus-ski picture

Postby snocatpete » Sun Aug 20, 2017 10:15 am

I was surfing around on the interweb again and I saw this vintage picture for sale so I bought it. I noticed there was a Hus-ski in it on the far right and then I noticed that the Hus-ski has bogie wheels and what appears to be a modified exhaust on the side of it?? So I am wondering if this is one off factory model or some type of deal modification? or simply some type of home made modifications? So I thought I would share it here on the forum to see if any one knows anything about this Hus-ski or the picture??

Pete, I don't know anything about it, but I have some questions for you. I see it says Superior View on the bottom, did you buy it from Superior View in Marquette, Michigan? If you did, was there any info about where the picture was taken? That's pretty much in my neck of the woods, although the guy that owns the studio does have pictures from all over the place. Thanks

Yes it did come from Superior View in Marquette and it is only a reprint of the original. The only info that came with it said Snowmobiling Newberry,Michigan circa 1960's that's all I can tell you about it !!

Thanks for the info Pete, Newberry is a couple hours away from where I live. Charlie V., from the Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum, picked up a lot of Hus-skis from that area. I'll ask him if he ever got any 200As with bogie wheels.

That's interesting Barrie, if the wheels weren't installed at the factory do you think it was installed by a dealer? As an "add on" kit? Do you have any pictures of that Hus-ski with the wheels? Did it look like they were the same as in this picture? Just curious....
