Share information about Can-Am with others
The Cam-Am bikes where launched in 1973 by the large Canadian company Bombardier. During the 70's they had some success in American motocross with riders such as: Marty Tripes, Gary Jones and and Jim Ellis. Former motocross legend and champion Jeff Smith (Great Britain) where contracted to develop the bikes. He fought hard to convince the Bombardier factory how to build a bike. The Can-Am production was transferred to England in a later state. The British Armstrong factory continued to produce Can-Am bikes up until 1987. The Can-Am's where surrounded by all sorts of myths regarding their power output, works suspension and such. The truth is that the Can-Am bikes where a bit behind when it came to handling and overall quality. The most innovative part was probably the rotary intake valved Rotax engine that produced some healty power.
