I just bought myself a snow bike last week! Can't wait to hit the trails on some white gold! Mine is powered by a couple pistons as well...
this is a link to a video of cutting out the top of the tunnel with the tochmate cnc plasma cutter. check it out.

So are you starting with a kit for the powertrain and adding a tunnel to your bike?
Let's see more pictures!
the kit I am building removes only the swing arm and rear tire, everything else stays, uses stock shock. it is only two bolts (swing arm and shock pivot) the brake line hose and chain to swap out the wheel for snow kit. more pics to come later this week

Looking good tomk! If can get your kit working as good a the mountain horse and at a lower cost, you'll be riding in style! Keep it up!

Looking good! Looks like lots of track slapping - is that coming out with proto3?
oh yea, I also got the MN trail stickers today, the bike is trail legal!

Bring it up to Mass this weekend!
oh man would that be sweet, I wish I could, gotta teach the youngins snowmobile safety. and yes proto #3 has much less slap. mainly it has to do with track tension, we are getting there, slowly :( might be in da up sometime between the 25th and 30th
