Bombardier Collection

A full line of Ski-doo snowmobiles from 1960 to 1966, 1969, and 1970.

BOMBARDIER IN 1961

Please take special notice to the three 1961 Ski-Doo snowmachines and the changes which took place in this year.   Ski-doo Sr# 61260 is equipped with coil spring front suspension and wooden skis, similar to the 1960 Ski-doo Sr# 6022.  Ski-Doo Sr# 61366 has leaf spring front suspension and wooden skis.  The leaf spring suspension appears again on Ski-Doo Sr# 611122, but the wooden skis have been replaced with steel skis.  The Leaf springs proved to give a better ride and the steel skis were more durable.  These changes proved as great advancements in the snowmobiling industry and are still used today on a few models, by many companies.  Armand Bombardier was a very talented Canadian Inventor with his eyes always set on the future and never satisfied with the present.   He surely left his mark on the Industry he helped invent.
