12 Awesome 1974 Polaris Sno-Pro Photos

Don Omdahl 1974 440cc Sno-Pro At Speed.

A lot of these 12 amazing 1974 Polaris Sno-Pro photos are from our friends at Snowtech Magazine and friends who sent them in over the years. 

Although the 1974 SnoPros looked like slightly modified 1973 Starfires, they were actually very unique Polaris sleds with a totally different bulkhead, an all magnesium chassis, and much improved motors and clutches from the year before.
