When it comes to old sleds, Lorne Larson’s snowmobile collection is unparalleled. He keeps his iconic rides on display at Lorne’s Vintage Sleds, his snowmobile museum in Lloydminster, Alberta.

Read an in depth article about Lorne’s Vintage Sleds to get a full grasp of how extensive Laron’s collection of snowmobiles truly is.

Today’s article highlights Larson’s 1967 Johnson Skee Horse.

“My favourite ride is the 1967 Johnson Skee Horse 20-inch track with the matching cutter behind,” he said. “It's got electric start and neutral. OMC, which is Johnson, Evinrude and Snow Cruiser—they’re all the same family, they had a good machine back then. They did a good job on their boat engines. They had an upper hand on how to finish things nice.”
