2WD monster truck bike?

Postby Roshman » Sun May 27, 2012 9:14 pm

Last week I went by a "museum" in Jerome, AZ that was mainly an unguided walk through a field of old trucks and machines, no plaques or descriptions of anything, so I've no idea what this thing is. I couldn't get any closer, but it looked to be 2WD. Everything else in the place was 1914-1960.

Can anyone ID this?

I saw one of these on The Pawn Stars show some time back ~

I am sure it was a 1960/70s Yamaha ~ they had it partly restored and it proved to be super slow despite it's cross country agility !

(Did some Goggling but found nothing . even scanned through the Pawn Stars web site series listings ~ )

Thats a Rokon all right, have a look at http://www.rokonworld.com/index.html
I got to play with one many years ago in Alaska, great for rough terrain but oh so slow on the flat

No worries, you've got to keep up on the liquid intake when you live in the warmer climates :154 As mentioned earlier, I got to ride one at a camp in Dyea, you could say I rode a Rokon in the Yukon, great fun over the rough ground but crap on the flat and even worse if you needed to make a turn.

A Rokon in the Yukon sounds fun, and I once had something really nice happen in the quaintly-named town of Good Luck.

Fecked if I can remember what it was now though.... :1204
