|Dateline: Brazil, 1977:
An enterprising Daniel Rodriguez sets about to fill the gap left in the Brazilian marketplace, caused by a trade embargo, for a large, dependable motorcycle. The result, born of ingenuity and a readily available supply of Volkswagen drive trains, is the AMAZONAS.

This is the earliest year of Amazonas I have a photo of. As soon as I laid eyes on it, it was love at first sight. To my way of thinking, this was the nicest year and most likely would have found a following among the traditionalist crowd in North America.
