Italian YouTube channel Malossi converted a 1997 scooter into the ultimate personal snowmobile using a snow skate and a snow tire.
Looks like this thing can rip! They even tow a skier behind the vehicle for a time.
I feel like COVID is driving every garage owner to convert some old vehicle into a snowmobile, and I’m here for it. We just need somebody to perfect a pair of motorized skis or a snowboard next.
Malossi: (Translated from Italian) “We didn’t like the idea of leaving it there to collect dust and warehouse air. We believe that giving a second chance is a must. We have recovered from the historical archives the NTT that won the scootercross trophy in 1997 which, with its 70cc and 21mm carburettor, after about twenty years of inactivity, has made it clear that the piece still commands. And where to exploit it in a period like this, if not on a completely empty ski slope? A snowmobile skate, a clean jet and a more recent blend are the ingredients of this recipe for a vehicle that is as epic as it is dangerous, indeed very dangerous.”
