Redline Can Am

The lightweight flattrackers of the 1970s were good looking bikes. Unlike today where modified motocrossers make up the support class, these bikes were built up of frame kits from specialist manufacturers. The big horsepower king of the 250 motocross class was the Can Am engine and Champion made a frame to suit. The paint scheme looks like a direct ripoff of the then-new Yamaha Molly-designed "Track stripe" pattern. Still looks great!
