Question Who makes winter tracks/skis for motorcycles?

Buddy of mine has a Ural with a sidecar. It is kitted out as a WWII nazi vehicle for war reenactment events. He is looking to get a track and skis so it would look like this photo.

Anyone have any ideas where he can get parts for a conversion like this?

these are two companies that have low track kits. you could look for a used one and weld up your own tube framework to make it look similar to the picture

Another option is Timbersled:

http://www.timbersled.com/en-us

They are now owned by Polaris Industries. Though I've owned many Polaris products over the years, my impression is new products are frequently under-engineered and insufficiently tested prior to actual production. The customer suffers while they make "improvements", which can mean de-tuning an engine, for example.
