We used to make things in this country #296 Rolo-Moto

Here's an oddity. An unknown number of these Rolo-Moto Moto-Trails were built at St Therese, Quebec in the early seventies. There is very little info online about this vehicle. The tires are unique, large low-pressure balloon type tires vulcanized to a steel rim. Apparently they were not the most of stable of things to ride.


 Power is provided by a German Solo 2 stroke single and CVT.





The owner also has the beginnings of a second one.

Update; A brochure was found on ebay. Thanks, Benoit!

Thanks, I can put you in contact with the owner, but I don't think he wants to sell. He is looking for any information on the vehicles though, if you have any.
