the Slidescooter was dreamt up by RiminiMoto, otherwise purveyors of fine Honda Cub accessories. Their approach really isn't more complicated than the above. The snowboard-like front track uses a ski-like snowboards cut down to fit, to provide some directional stability. It's connected to the front forks by a support that bolts in right where the axle would normally go.
