The Can-Am TNT series was one of many dirt-oriented bikes produced during the short but very sweet lifespan of Can-Am. An acronym for Track ‘n’ Trail, the TNT bikes shared the same chassis and engine as the MX bikes, but utilized lower compression for easy riding traits on trails.
Lasting only 3 years, the TNT series started with 125 and 175cc variants (a 250 was introduced in the second year) and was soon replaced by the Qualifier model range. The 175 motor was particularly successful in MX applications – the 175MX enabled Team Canada to earn bronze, silver, and gold medals at the ’73 ISDT. The TNT got an “Enduro lighting kit”, Magura controls, and a cowhide tool bag. The front forks offered 6.6 inches of suspension travel and were adjustable in half-degree increments between 25 and 31 degrees. Can-Am claimed that the 175 produced 25 horsepower at the rear wheel through at 6-speed transmission at 8,500 rpm. For more information, head on over to Canned Ham.
This example (VIN: 5851002133) is street legal in PA and it stands out because the seller knows that several common issues with the model have been taken care of – a second fuel cutoff was installed as these often have leaky petcocks, the foam block in the oil tank was removed, and there’s lots of new parts like Neken handlebars, clutch/throttle/front brake cables, grips, chain, and rear fender. Other goodies include SRT hand guards and Preston Petty light/front fender. There’s a small amount of rust and a couple of seals are leaking but in general this is in decent shape.
