1976 Penton 250 MC5 Motorcycle Road Test / Photos / Specs

Buying the best motocrosser is no simple task these days. Time was, only a few seasons back, when price for the most part indicated which race bikes were superior. The expensive European mounts were clearly better motocrossers than the less costly Japanese bikes. But the tide has changed, and price alone no longer singles out the best - or worst. Honda started the change with the Elsinore, Yamaha emphasized it with the YZ series and Suzuki's RMs are tearing up tracks from coast to coast. Still, the Europeans have not been sleeping, though their bikes have sen less dramatic improvements. Maicos, Huskies, Montesas and Bultacos are proven machines, and finally Penton has developed its first real motocrosser - the Grand Prix replica 250cc MC 5. 1976 Penton 250 MC5 Motorcycle Road Test 7-Page Article available at www.DadsVintageAds.com CLICK THE PICTURE TO "BUY IT NOW" Digg It!
