  1. Riding into history 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jan 2015


    This film meant a lot to me because I was a witness to the domination of, not only the Penton motorcycles, but the Pentons as riders. I owned two new Pentons in my day and this was a nostalgic view of what I remember it being back in the '70's. It's no exaggeration that John was/is tough. After breaking his ribs while winning his Super Senior class in a Wellston, Ohio National Enduro, John took the time to describe to Sox Brookhart how to tune a Lectron carb. All the while he was hanging on to the brush guard of my truck, gasping for breathe.
    I tell my kids "Back when men were men and John Penton rode motorcycles".


  2. Great nostalgia/history for those of us dirt riding in the 70's era 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jan 2015

    Very good timeline and history presented about the life of John Penton. The video can be somewhat long and dry for someone who does not know who at least some of the persons interviewed are and the importance of their contribution to history. I have seen most of these people at races and appreciate their retrospective appearance. The many vintage still photos and some video add into the mix. I really enjoyed inviting friends to view this as a group, all of us liked it very much.



  3. Very entertaioning 4 Star Review

    John Penton's heyday was just before I got into dirt bikes. I knew the name but not the whole story. The dvd really filled in all the blanks for me. Enjoyed it very much.
