If this bike was an animal I would call it a rabid snarling fire breathing dragon…
When I was a kid growing up in Canada I used to drool over this exact model. I didn’t know much about bikes at the time but I knew what I liked. The look, the lines and those awsome colors. not to mention the performance for the time. It might have been a real handful for a 12 year old :)
Thanks to this fantastic find by Ted Guthrie (owner of the earlier posted Penton 6-day) I can see that my lust was not misplaced! What a great ride! And I think it’s great that you use it for it’s intended purpose instead of locking it away!
Thanks again Ted for sharing another great ride! If yo have more don’t hesitate to keep them coming!!
It is all-original, runs perfectly, and came with title, toolkit, owners manual, and even some cans of original Can-Am branded two-stroke oil.
The weekend after I bought the bike, I rode it in a 75-mile, vintage enduro. The old “Canned-Ham” ran great, but the combination of totally blown-out shocks and too-stiff forks made it nearly impossible to keep it pointed straight down the trail.
