Very cool. A friend of mine has one of these in his basement, along with a race version I believe. He was/is a well connected Bombardier guy, former race mechanic, etc.

I have read that only 4 of the 500 bikes were made and they are owned by ex canam guys.
That would be incredible if you could snap a couple pictures sometime!!
I really want to see the taillight arrangement as it doesn't show up in the crappy limited pictures out there.

Wow, interesting article.
Thanks for posting this. I bought an old magazine on Ebay with another story on this streetbike. Just waiting for it to arrive.
The featured bike in the article is owned by Gary Robinson. (basicly the founder of Canam).
So hoping for better pictures...
