1970 Herter’s Husky

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

  • To preserve a lost part of snowmobile history.

What motivated you to start your project?

This snowmobile has alot of family history. My great uncle bought it second hand many years ago. I want to keep the sled alive in honor of his memory.

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the sled?

This is a sled you don’t see, or hear about. Herter’s made snowmobiles in the 60s and early 70s. They were a MN based company out of Waseca Minnesota. It’s all original and had been stored in my aunt’s boat house for 31 years.

What are you most proud of?

The fact my uncle took such good care of it, and even after 31 years of storage I was able to get it started with minimal effort.

What do other people say about your sled?

“where did you find that!?!”

“I haven’t seen one of those in 30 years!”
