Penton: The John Penton Story

Post by mekovach » Thu Jun 19, 2014 1:01 pm

John Penton was a motorcycle enthusiast who turned dealer and off-road, enduro rider of the 1950's - 1980's. He was also an entrepreneur who was passionate about his sport. He took it to extremes when, tired of being beaten in the woods by the small displacement, two-stroke motorcycles in the International Six-Days Trials, he had one made to his own specifications and marketed it in the United States under the Penton name. The motorcycle, being highly successful, help make John Penton a house-hold name among the motorcycle racing community. Penton: The John Penton Story is being shown around the country now.
