Dave, I Saw your site. GREAT !
I happened to see this pic of a 1969 Ski Jet. at this url http://www.vintagesnowmobiles.50megs.com/1_A_SLEDS_WORTH_TEXT_PAGE.html
I'll give you some info.
2 pictures above are a 1969 Ski-Jet manufactured
in Archbald, Pa.

think Ski Doo suspensions will work.
Up until about 10 years ago Levine's Upholstery had all the material to redo the seat and back.
They had a fire and lost it all. When the company went bankrupt they stuck a lot of people in the area.
I had a brand new track and some parts but scraped it all when my parents sold there home.
I was in the factory when they were on the way out and all those brochures, parts, motors were all over the
floor scattered. They were going to put a Hirth twin cyl. in one of the models but never did.
The steel body one ( 1968 MODEL ) that was out first had a squared tapered nose with single head light.
I had one
but no pictures.
I'll try to get some further information. We have a business that sold to CMC & Fab-Weld.
We were one of the local businesses that CMC owed money to when they went out of business.
When they started, CMC purchased a Ski Doo tore it down to see how it was made.
They came out with the steel chassis model ( 1968 ). The hood was a different shape.
twin headlight model ( 1969 ) was designed by Joseph Kelly senior.
The steel was the 1968 model (not too many sold).
one you have ( 1969 ) was plagued with problems.
They were a flimsy machine compared to the Ski doo or the Arctic CATS.
The latter plus the lack of sales and the problems just bankrupted the company.
Nobody wanted them.
wanted to give us a couple to satisfy their bill. Fab-Weld
