Bombi Trek! The Next Generation.

Made in 1984, this Bombardier Bombi – passed down to me by my father – has been a restoration project for myself and my oldest grandson. Nearly completed its upgrades (Holley EFI yet to come), it was time to take it out on the trapline and give it a test.

Owing to a recent injury, I had to remain in camp and was not able to accompany my grandson on this trip, but he sure had fun, as you will see. That included getting high-centered on a log and working his way out of that fix. It’s a good thing the Bombi has a winch that can be attached to either the front or the back.
