There were a ton of oddball brands coming into the U.S. in those days.
A dealer in the next town from me started selling Cooper motorcycles. They had a Mexican (I believe) engine, Moto Islo. ( we called is Motor IS SLOW).
Dealer was demonstrating a 250 in his parking lot and the engine blew up.
I don't think he ever sold one.
