John Penton Story

Most the vintage motorcycle guys I know don't give the slightest crap about motocross (except for you Lurker Tom). Motocross is my roots and I'll always have a soft spot for it. I was however a little too young to follow some of what was happening from a business perspective in the late 70's. 

I just saw this Kickstarter teaser for the John Penton Story.  The teaser is old enough the movie has now been funded and is supposed to be released in early 2014. For those that don't know Penton was the European motocross brand we know today as KTM.

I'm also a Lyle Lovett fan. I had no idea he was a motorcycle guy much less a former MX'er and Penton rider.

Todd Huffman is the guy spearheading the film project. Todd is the guy responsible for the "Motocross Files" series that aired on Speed. Check it out if you haven't already.
