1975 Can-Am TNT 250

1975 Can Am TNT 250

Our first Can-Am showcase bike comes from Bruno Picard of Drummondville, Quebec, Canada. It is a 1975 Can-Am TNT 250 dual purpose machine.

Here’s my 1975 Can-Am TNT 250. This Can-Am is street legal. Only 2500 of these bikes like this one were made. Today it is very rare to see one of these running!

The 1975 Can-Am TNT 250 has a left side kick starter and gear shifter. The kickstand was on the right side, due to the large left side exhaust pipe that wraps under the bike.

    I have a 1975 Can-Am TNT 250 that is missing the kick starter that slips on in front of the gear shift lever. Would anyone know where I could buy a replacement?

    I bought the bike new in 1975 and it has about 850 total miles on it.
