2008 is the 40th Anniversary of the Penton Motorcycle and the 10th Anniversary of the Penton Owners Group. The Penton family and the Penton Owners Group would like to invite you, your family and friends to take part in the celebration.

Join us the weekend of September 20-21, 2008 in Amherst, Ohio, the birthplace of John Penton and the Penton Motorcycle.

This celebration will be a “once in a life time opportunity” to visit with the Penton family, Penton Imports employees and Penton Motorcycle racers past and present. Meet and talk with the people that contributed to the success of the Penton Motorcycle, Hi-Point Accessories and even KTM today. Share in the camaraderie with the Penton Owners Group members and enthusiasts.
