70 Timberwolf 70 Timberwolf
This is a one-of-a-kind snowmobile built in 1969 by Northsport Industries, Inc. of Sault Ste. Marie, MI. The owners of the company were Dr. Tom Robinson and Professor Dick Zabelka and Marv Dahlman as a company officer. Interestingly, this Timberwolf served as the ‘Pace Sled’ for the 1970 Soo I-500 International Snowmobile Race. It was discovered in St. Ignace, MI by David Blair, Moran, MI, and he has donated this machine to the Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum. 4 members of the Museum Board have restored this wonderful piece of history to its original glory. The Timberwolf was promoted as a high performance “family machine”. It also could be used by utility companies, commercial fishermen, the Michigan DNR, and ski areas. Six or 7 of them were built. Each machine was a different color. They were a fiberglass, twin track, rear engine JLO 395, single cylinder machine. With the number of accidents on the St. Mary’s River, they decided to make them with the ability to float. Production ended in 1974.

70? Larven 70? Larven
This 150 lb. snow vehicle can make tracks up to 40 mph. It is powered by a 9hp 2 cycle Husqvarna engine and was created by Lennart Nilsson & built by Lemko in Ostersund, Sweden from the mid 1960’s - 1991. The rider wore skis to support himself and to help direct the travel of this odd sled. It was used by skiers to climb slopes and included a ski lift attachment & pulley. It was advertised as having a low noise level. The gas and brake wires are covered by a Teflon case to prevent freezing. The gas tank is under the seat. The frame is made of 100% non-corroding aluminum alloy, divided into 2 sections. “Two of these will fit in a station wagon.”

Kick Style Wood Sled Kick Style Wood Sled
Manufactured by Les Traineaux “Riviere-Du-Loup” Inc., Quebec, this wooden Eskimo dog sled was adapted for use behind the modern snowmobile. Extra long flexible skis gave support over deep snow and excellent tracking. Non-slip foot pads on the skis helped the rider feel secure while riding Eskimo style. The Ski-A-Sled would fit on top of your snowmobile while being trailered. Steve & Sherry Landon, "Winning Edge Magazine"
