1973 Honda White Fox
With all of the products the Honda company has made, not many realize they did make this snowmobile in 1973. At least 200 were made. Most of them were distributed to dealers in MI and WI, but not long after that, Honda recalled all of them to be destroyed. It is thought that only 2 survived the recall.
The 10hp, 178cc, 2 stroke air-cooled engine is in the rear, mounted horizontally. The rope-start handle is behind the seat. The carb is on top of the engine and a 2 gallon steel fuel tank is ahead of the engine. It has a 14.6 inch track, 2 sets of bogie wheels, motorcycle taillights & handgrips, and a steel tube frame & fiberglass body. Its 79 inches long, 32 inches wide and weighs 227 lbs.
This machine is owned by Joe Jones, who is a Honda collector. He buys out inventories and sells NOS parts for most motorcycle brands online. Owner: Joe Jones, Boyne City, MI
