Auction Block: 1970 Rokon Trail-Breaker Bike

Oct 16, 2019

Category: Rides

Some products are destined to take the slow road to the top, and most of those never crest the summit of being revered as truly great. This pristinely-restored 1970 Rokon Trail-Breaker never actually made it into the exceptional rankings, though it is entirely capable of climbing the ladder of success and just about any trail out there — albeit at its own, casual pace.

Originally owned by Dr. Forrest Bird, the beloved aviator, inventor, collector and creator of the first reliable mass-produced mechanical human heart ventilators, this museum-quality unit is fully operable and ready for any off the map explorer. Built to be a go-anywhere vehicle, the Trail-Breaker is propelled by a 136cc Chrysler Power Bee 2-stroke engine that delivers power to both front and rear wheels via an automatic transmission — giving the two-wheeled tractor the ability to climb 60% grades and tow up to 2,000 lbs. Hollow aluminum wheels wrapped in freshly mounted 26” mud tires give this bike the ability to float on water, while the 13 inches of ground clearance make sure it never gets hung-up on dry land, allowing for trails to be broken almost anywhere on the planet. The current bid sits at $2,500.

Purchase: $2,500+
