The “Panther” name has been part of a few bikes in motorcycling history – the MZ Baghira Black Panther, the Benelli Panther, and even a company named Panther, which was a subsidiary of the British firm Phelon & Moore. But there was a another motorcycle company named Panther in the 60s that was based out of Taiwan, and today we’re sharing one of their bikes up for sale.
In a period Cycle World story, it’s noted that the 175cc two-stroke engine produces 17 horsepower and that the bike is “adequate for short distance.” It’s made in Taiwan and it’ll surely be interesting to track down parts for it nowadays, though the price is hard to argue with!
Per the seller, this example was bought as a barn find and he has a video proving that it was running “recently” but it “has sat for a year now no spark.”
Find this Panther project for sale in Isanti, Minnesota for $375 here on Craigslist.
