Gaunt

From Graces Guide

Jump to: navigation, search

Gaunt was a motorcycle produced from 1969 to 1970, by Peter Gaunt.

Gaunt had been behind the Alta venture until Suzuki stopped supplying him with engines for replicas. He then switched to an 89cc Jawa two-stroke engine with a five-speed gearbox. This light and easily handled machine had its engine hung from a spine frame, with downtubes to protect it.

The Gaunt was only produced for two years.
