Group of inventors from Norway has created a set of tools and components to convert a motorcycle snowmobile. Unusual set was named Timbersled. Timbersled set consists of only three main parts – the two parts for the bike, as well as several working tools required for installation and removal kit.
From Timbersled can turn almost any motorcycle snowmobile. To do this, set the owner of the design enough to dismantle the bike front and rear wheels, and then installed in their place “caterpillar” and ski. Caterpillar is set instead of the rear wheels and plays the role of a push mechanism. In movement it is given by a motorcycle engine.
With regard to the fuel consumption, according to tests conducted, it increases by approximately 12-15% compared with the rotation of the wheel. Instead of the front wheels, guide, support appropriately established ski, which also performs the task of steering wheel. Rotate skiing in one of the sides, not difficult to guess, now will set the direction of motion.
The front wheel can not be replaced by a set of ski Timbersled, but then the owner of the motorcycle will be faced with the fact that the vehicle will simply sink into the deep snow. At the same time for a ride through the snowy city will be better to leave the wheel with winter tires.
Now set Timbersled have only one option, but later inventors overall greater choice so that would Timbersled suited to any motorcycle. Until the installation is only possible Timbersled sports motorcycles. The cost of one such set will be from 5000 to 6500 U.S. dollars.
