American wooden sledge with metal runners.  All original wood and steel. This is a Paris Champion Fastback sledge and has red and black graphics on the seat and steering, and 3 tachometer images in black on top. The steering mechanism works well, with a piece of rope to steer with and to hold on to.

There are a couple of small scuffs, and the paint is worn in places. The steering rack has a crack, but has been repaired at some point in the past and is sturdy. The runners are showing signs of rust where the paint has worn off. It is a good, solid sled. Please see images.

The practical use of sleds is ancient and widespread. They were developed in areas with consistent winter snow cover, as vehicles to transport materials and/or people, far more efficiently than wheeled vehicles could in icy and snowy conditions. Early designs included hand-pulled sizes as well as larger dog, horse, or ox drawn versions. There are five types of sleds commonly used recreationally today: runner sleds, toboggans, disks, tubes and backcountry sleds.  This is a runner sled.

Product Code: 51228/SC

Styling: Perfect for Christmas displays, hung on the wall of a man cave or workshop as a  statement piece, or even to use for sledging!
