Captured at the Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen, Minn. (about 45 miles south of Thief River Falls), this photo was apparently captured by someone who recognized something “different” about the two snowmobiles. Nice job!
The image was posted HERE on the ArcticInsider forum, along with about every other snowmobile forum, which has caused a firestorm of activity.
Lots of interesting comments on the forum.
My own thoughts:
The hoods look small, compared to the current Twin Spar sleds. Hard to really comment on the shape of the hoods, since they’re clearly disguised.
Spindles look new, but remind me of the Sno Pro.
The sled in front looks like a Crossfire-length track.
Exhaust smoke strongly suggests 2-stroke.
Johnny Cash would love either sled.
I have more questions than I do answers. For instance, are they for sure Arctic Cats?
If yes, why were these guys parked on Hwy 59, in the most populated town between TRF and Detroit Lakes?
What kind of luck did they have inside the Shooting Star Casino? Big payday?
Did these guys get a serious shake-down from their boss?
Can I get one in mostly black, but with some graphics?
