Russian Snowmobile

This cool snowmobile is made by a retired man from Kirov in Russia. I already found this a few weeks ago, but I completely forgot about it. We've had a lot of snow recently and Amsterdam has turned into one big ice rink today. You can imagine why I thought of it.

The machine was made from scrap and powered by an old Yamaha engine. The big wheel is a very distinctive feature. It is actually really light because of this and it is said to perform well on fresh snow. The gear shift lever is the coolest part, made from an old Coca-Cola souvenir. (via English Russia)
