The TnT (Track ‘n Trail) was the trail bike model of the MX, sharing the same chassis and engine. There were slight differences in porting with a slightly lower compression ratios, but essentially it was the same motor as the MX models. Although in later models the rotary valve was changed to provide a better power (more torgue) range. The only other differences are the inclusion of lighting ( via a 4 or 6 pole stator) and a speedometer.
The TnT only lasted for the early years, quickly replaced with the Qualifier model in late 1976.
Below are two photographs by Gary Scott, one of the original development engineers, showing prototype TnT’s. Note the differences in tank logos, carb positioning and rear brake. The bike on the right is believed to be Jeff Smiths original factors prototype.

Worlds most northern Can-Am?
How far north have you ever seen a Can-Am? Lying 2 degrees north of the Arctic circle, Inuvik is about as far north as you can go in Canada. This photo from 1977 shows that even Can-Am made this far! Way back in ’77 Andre Ravary was stationed there is his role with the Canadian Armed Forces. Along with two other friends, they all bought Can-Ams to ride the local roads and tundra. Sadly 3 years later girlfriends got in the way and the bike was traded for a 500 Yamaha.
