    I have a pair of Aero 2000's that I don't use anymore, and my homemade cam-over wheel dollys, would sell. The dollys wouldn't be good for taxiing far, but great for handling on the ice.

    Wow. Thanks for the advice. Im definatly gonna love this sight. Lots of wisdom here. That said, anyone interested in a.dodge 2500s? New skins. I do beleive it is 1 1/2 axle as it has a.dodge supercub legs and 6" cleavlands. Again thanks for the responses.

    Dodge builds both 1 1/4 and 1 1/2 axle legs, and Clevelands are available in both.

    I think all Atlee's skis had 1 1/2 for the axle, and used a bushing if on 1 1/4 axles

    Are those the fancy skis that have a hidden compartment to store your oil in?

    While searching for ski dolly plans/drawings tonight, Aero Ski website says ski dollies are now available. No further info on their website, so you must have to call them.

    I haven't fully checked Shawn's Aero Ski website to see if he had ski dolly info posted.

    I'll get a picture after work today of our over center two wheel Dolly's. Just my two cents from my very limited experience. We have tryed several ski dolly designs and styles. Our single wheel big tire ones rolled the best but take two people to put in and take out. One to lift the ski the other to slide it in and out . In this process one year the tail swung around and got all fu@$ed up when it hit the doghouse in the back of our hangar. Also these twist the hell out of the ski and gear. My favorite ones simply slide through and attach the two haves with a pin, then grab the handle and flip it over center lifting the ski. One guy can easily do it and a slight change in design would allow for bigger tires which would make it roll easier but we're only rolling out of the hangar and across a narrow driveway it hasn't been much of an issue. Praying for snow... The skis never even went on last winter ..

    I finished rigging the skis and fabricated some Dolly's so thought I should post a couple of images.

    In in the ready to roll position. Although I think I'll need to make a couple of snubbers to keep the tails up. Next step is to take them to the powder coater and I'm ready for winter.

    The rigged skis weight 33.2 pounds each. That puts my empty weight around 994.

    The top shaft on the dolly is turned to slide into the hollow axle. It has 6" or so of engagement. There isn't any keeper to hold the two together. I have a gas powered tail wheel mover and I drove it around and made some turns and it all stays together nicely.

    The wheels are a heavy duty cast iron industrial wheel I found somewhere. I'd rather they were a little larger in diameter but they seem to work ok.

    This shows it pretty well. Since the last pictures I welded a second brace on the handle and got the Dolly's powder coated. In case anyone wonders the second cable to the rear attach point with the clip,is just a snubber to keep the ski tail off the ground when the dolly wheel is pivoted down. I also removed the brake calipers.

    Ready for snow.

    I bought 2 Robinson Helo dolly's from eBay for $50 last spring. I thought i'd get lucky and use them as built. Just got around making ski dolly's out of them, used wheels and handle

    I know where there's a pair of Airglas LW2500 ski's for sale . . . in Texas. Don't have a price but can get you one if anyone is interested. They came off a PA18A.

    Glenn. Those look like a nice solution. Lightweight and I know they are pretty sturdy.

    StateCop, those are decent skis for anything but crust and mashed potatoes. Surprisingly good performane in deep snow that is fluffy,too

    This is how they work . . right? Not much snow 'round these parts. I do understand crust and smashed taters though.
