We used to make things in this country. #94: Alouette AX-125

 Alouette AX-125

Cycle Canada ran the page below in a 1987 retrospective. It's the only reference I've been able to find on this shortlived and frankly not very good bike. Though fast, the Sachs 125 engine was very peaky.  Fibreglass bodywork was fragile, suspension too soft and the rims bent easily.
 The guy I bought it from said he used it one summer to travel up to his family's cottage- 100km each way. I can't imagine.
