Most sledders don't know what my Blades are either when out on the trail. I just tell them it's a custom prototype...

Great read! I always wanted one and remember seeing the prototype at the show in Syracuse NY. It was a long ride from Maine to go see it. If I had time I would still like to have one and put some modern power in it. The greatest sled that never quite made it to the end. I would love to hear more of the story of the rise and fall of Redline snowmobiles!

I donít think putting a modern engine in this chassis is possible without cutting up the chassis. The original engine is narrow. The cylinders are canted forward, towards the carbs. Thereís no room for a recoil housing. Thereís no room for a water pump or traditional oil pump. And the way the engine brackets are placed on the engine and mount to the chassis are unique to the Redline. The exhaust manifold would not have enough room to attach to the pipe using another engine. Thereís nothing wrong with using the original motor. Itís a stout design.

Adding a coolant temp gauge, LED headlights, and a snow flap. Gearing up for videos.

I wish I had nothing else to do...
Many projects/jobs keep me away from the Redlines. I do start it every 2 or 3 weeks and let it run. Once the cooler weather comes, grassdragging around the house takes place!
