Rokon

Check out this vintage Rokon from 1971, lovingly restored by a friend of mine.

Before there were all many of all terrain vehicles, there was the Rokon, which features an amazing design. Both the front and rear wheel are drive wheels thanks to a gear box located under the seat and a driveshaft that runs forward.

The Rokon is a rugged machine designed for rough use. The wheels are hollow and you can use them to store fuel.

While innovative, the design is fairly simple as you can see in the close-ups above and below.

It’s an impressive unit given when it was first available. Some stunning examples still in use.
