In 1969, 3 snowmobile enthusiasts decided to try their luck at selling snowmobiles in Canada. Denis Roy, Lucien Carrier, & Donald Boutin formed the fabrication business, BCR Autoniege, Inc in St. Henedine, Quebec (after the first letters of their names). For the first winter, 1970, they built 5 snowmobiles. These machines had a Kohler motor.
For the second year, they increased production to 40 machines in 6 models. They all had a Kohler engine, 15.5 in. track, a removable 4 gal. gas tank and the options of electric start, reverse, speedometer, odometer and a Metal Flake cab.
In 1971, an American offered to distribute the Super Star in the U.S., but paid for them with a bad check. 26 machines crossed into the U.S. and were resold in parts. The owners were only able to find 3 of the snowmobiles.
To minimize costs in 1972, they bought parts from the Dauphin Co. in Grand Mere, Quebec, but so many companies were going out of business that year and these 2 companies had to close their doors, too.
