I'm in the process of re-building my 97' Sportsman 500 right now, and once it's all back together I am planning on adding a winch and custom bumper to the front. I'm either going to buy a winch mount and build my bumper off of that or I am going to completely fab an integrated winch bumper. My dilemma is that I have never seen how a winch mounts to the front of one of these older sportsman so I don't even know where to begin. The pictures I have found on the internet all seem to be universal photos and I cant look at them and figure out how the mount actually attaches to the bike. Anyone who has a winch mounted on their old sportsman 500 please post pictures of your winch mount and what brand it is and how it attaches to the atv. I know that different brands have different ways of mounting so I would like to see several different styles so I can decide which I like best.
