holy smokes, look at the chains on that puppy !!

what amazes me about those old Snowbirds is, they do so much with only a 4HP or 6HP engine. it was a really well designed machine.

First thing I saw were those chains. Holy cats!!

I imagine they work well, but man that thing's really got to lump along. If memory serves that model has studded solid tires, but I could be wrong.

THAT'S the chains I'm a' lookin' for !!
notice how they only attach in the middle of tire, leaving sides with no chain to get stuck on the machine framework
