    He's in his 80's now. I think he gets a reprieve!

    Here's my latest vintage enduro-'79 maico GS 250. Currently ripped apart for rebuild and paint this winter. Painting the frame and forks but I'll leave the tank as is. Tank and number plate graphics are Maico Meister unobtanium. Right up my alley with the weird stuff-the Maico clutch uses Bellville washers as springs and an unusual shifting linkage connected to a CZ type slotted shift selector. Husky's are downright boring compared to them.

    The last I knew, the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu had the real GOV 132 and the one at the Sammy Miller Museum is a copy.

    As this is a picture thread:

    Before I saw the KTM decal I thought it was a Penton.

    My brother bought a brand new Penton 100cc Penton 6 Days Trial from a dealer my name escapes me, in Gladwin Mi. Who I bought my first
    husky, "'71 250 Cross 8 speed".
    Anyway, I've been told the 100cc Penton 6 Days never existed.
    It did not have the rounded tank. It was a '73 or '74. He sold it to me and I sold "gave to" my little brother.
    The late great Tom Boyd, from Okemas, Mi. worked on my 390 WR Husky and never heard of one either.
    I know it existed.
    Any Penton experts here?

    Gladwin Mi. dealer's name started with a K. The family was a constant JackPine Enduro winner. Building is still standing at the corner of M61 and M20.
    They sold Penton and Husqvarna.

    I thought it demonstrated a serious lack of training ability of the instructors.
    It is funny to watch but I feel sorry for the poor boys who were being "trained".
    It makes me wonder if that is how the training is for the rest of their service...

    I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.

    They were doing kinda OK on the old 4-stroke singles.

    But the guys on the old 2-strokes were having a hell of a time.

    And #5 has absolutely no idea which way the motorcycle is going to go when he twists the throttle.

    I think the original is back in Sammy's hands now.

    Do not claim to be a Penton expert but, I recall a 100cc Penton called the Berkshire, the 125 was the Six Days. I had a 175 Jackpine and a 250 Hare Scrambler.

    The Penton /KTM used Sachs motors. They came in 50, 75, 80, 100, 125, and more sizes.
