    There's not much info out there on these. Interesting looking work bike though. It seems like it would be good for dragging livestock out of ditches or carrying heavy loads.

    Looks like the bastard offspring of a TW and a Rokon!

    They are super rare even in Japan now. Made from 1982-1987. The name came from its ability to be a work horse. Motorcycle=Mot Truck= Tra ( I know its TRU but Japanese people pernounce it TO-RA-KU=truck) Montra. I just looked on a site selling them. I saw only 8. With today's rate at 79 yen to the dollar. Ready its ridiculous. the cheapest to the most expensive. $2253.16-$3772.15. Holy cow. That is just one site. I would sell it on ebay to a Japanese person. They want it for sure. I have only seen 3 ever in Japan.

    If you squint and cross your eyes just right the now-defunct, unobtanium Big Ruckus shares some of the same flavor.



    'Bout it. I'd like to get one of the cheap Chinese BR knockoffs and give it a Motra-esque treatment.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Yes, was gonna add, it looked like a cross between a Rokon and my Big Ruckus. The Yen is that low? Back in '73 I was in Okinawa. the Yen was 309 to the dollar. Great deals on bikes,cameras,stereos etc. We rode on some other kind of big tired bike. a Suzuki VanVan??? Rode mostly on a Honda Passport. Went everywhere on that.
