American Eagle was formed by Jack McCormack in 1966 after he had spent the previous 6 years establishing first Honda and then Suzuki in the US. American Eagle imported motorcycles from several manufacturers, basically "badge-engineering" them into a product line. The restyled Laverda 750 was the flagship of the fleet but this 150cc Renegade, styled by designer Lenny Stobar was also an eyecatcher.
I remember seeng these ads in old magazines but doubted that the bike ever made it to production as the company went out of business in 1971. But a visit to the Barber Motosports Museum in 2011 revealed an example of an actual bike. Quite original and striking, though a little visually awkward.
I think I need one.
