Actually it all started about 30 years ago when I saw an ad for a Rokon Trailbreaker in the back of a Popular Mechanics magazine. I was hooked! Little did I know that it would take this long to finally realize my boyhood fantasy (not the one about my 8th grade teacher,that one is still a fantasy although she is probably about 80 by now..shudder..).

Off the beaten path? A Rokon was capable of taking you very far off the beaten path!? In the last post we spoke about some of the fascinating two stroke bikes that we’ve on the lookout for as we put together the fourth annual Modern Classics Motorcycle Show coming up on March 1, 2014 at Martin Moto in Boyertown, Pa.  Then just yesterday our attention was drawn to yet another possibly forgotten bike from the 1970s that we had overlooked.
