Here is a picture of a rare Enduro bike that was preserved new over the years.
This particular bike has never been ridden!
Can you find the brand and model?

That is a 1975 Rokon RT340. :D

A new 1975 RT 340 Brand new RT from Jim&Jim's. They never sold this bike. Never even started it. Rolled it in and out of dealership for 10 years, racked up 4 miles just rolling it in and out each day. Wes traded it to Rick Doughtey for an Ossa Phantom and traded the Phantom for a Ossa 350 MAR (new 1975) the same day. Rick has this for sale now for $3500.00

The funny part is that this Rokon bike is automatic!
Here is the original picture:

Rokon RT 340

The pic is of a Rokon RT 340. The wonderful pull start, automatic motorcycle. In the 70's the United States sent a team to the ISDT using these bikes.

Andy, do you spend much time north of San Fran?
I just have to shake my head that you know the history of that bike in the picture. Funny thing is , I thought Jim & Jim's were out of business :confused:
