American Eagle 405 Talon

The American Eagle 405 Talon was a 400cc, single cylinder, two stroke, off-road motorcycle manufactured by American Eagle during the early 1970s.

The 405 Talon had raised fenders and no instrumentation. The exhaust was unusual as it was a low-swept expansion chamber while other motorcycles used high mount exhaust systems. The transmission was said to be unreliable.
