1975 Bultaco Astro 360 

Unique to the United States, the Astro is a vintage motocross bike conceived to compete at dirt ovals at every small town fairground. Derived from the Pursang motocross model, the Bultaco Astro had a higher output motor, no front brake, shifter and rear brake pedal on both the left and right and a variable wheel base set by special rear wheel adjusters. The name comes from the Houston Aerodome, where this classic motorcycle model had much success.

"Aerodrome" is such a 1930's term. In the 1960's outer space was all the rage and they named the Houston site "Astrodome". Sadly it has fallen into disrepair and any year now the Astrodome will be torn down.
