Abstract: An improved suspension arrangement for the front steering assembly of a snow-bike, and the snow-bike incorporating the improved suspension arrangement. The steering assembly for which the suspension is intended includes a steering column having a steering device such as a handlebar at its upper end and a ski at its lower end. The suspension arrangement includes an intermediate arm journalled with respect to the steering column and extending longitudinally of the snow-bike. A rear portion of the intermediate arm is journalled with respect to the ski. A suspension assembly, such as a piston-cylinder and spring assembly, is connected between the intermediate arm and the steering column.
Abstract: Motorized snow vehicle composed of a front steering assembly and a rear support assembly including a support chassis and a motor activating a tread, the front steering assembly having a steering column adapted to pivot on the chassis and which carries at its lower portion a front runner or ski and at its upper portion handlebars or the like, wherein the chassis includes a main support beam extending towards the rear above which the motor is attached.
Abstract: A steering assembly for a vehicle having a rear carrier assembly that includes ground engaging means, a front steering assembly that includes ground engaging means, and mounting means mounting the front steering assembly on the rear carrier assembly for pivotable movement about a steering axis lying in a plane of general symmetry. The system according to the invention includes an adjustable pin for limiting pivotable movement of the front steering assembly about the steering axis to a predetermined angle when the pin is adjusted to an active position. The adjustable pin is selectively movable to an inactive position for effecting pivotable movement of the front steering assembly beyond the predetermined angle.
