Last month’s CYCLE WORLD, the May issue, developed into one which we later realized had made several rather glaring errors, most of which we are hearing about. In our Daytona report, we called Don Burnett, Dan, no less than twice. That was not enough for us though, because in our report on the Four Aces’ Hare & Hound we captioned a photo of Greeves rider Bob McLaughlin as being Bob Belt.

How do siamesed pipes work, both for vertical and Vee twins? Also, does the position of the carburetor along the length of the tuned intake pipe make any difference? Dick Cormany Sherman Oaks, California Not knowing which siamesed exhaust system you have in mind, it is difficult to give you an exact answer.

ASK ANY MOTORCYCLIST what he considers to be the two-wheeled equivalent of the Rolls-Royce and you will almost certainly be told "BMW." That answer will not be too far from wrong, either, except that the products coming from the Bayerische Motoren Werke incorporate a good deal more in advanced engineering features than that famous English car.

SPAIN is most often thought of as the land of hot food, rather than hot motorcycles, but all that may be about to change. In Barcelona, which is on Spain's sea coast and not on the plain where mainly falls the rain, the Compania Espanola de Motores, S.A., produces the fine line of small-displacement Bultaco motorcycles, and these can be had in some exceedingly warm stages of tune.

GORDON H. JENNINGS
TWO-CYCLE ENGINES cannot be mentioned in any gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts without an immediate, and usually violent, argument ensuing. Pros and cons of every conceivable kind fly back and forth, and when all of the shouting is over, the question will not have been in the slightest way resolved. Those arguing for the two-stroke will not have won over a single soul from the four-stroke camp — and it is unthinkable that anyone with a liking for the "ring-dings" would desert the cause.

YOU might say that the Bavarian builders of those motorcycles known as BMW's got into the game by accident, but once in they showed a single-mindedness rare in the two-wheel game. Of course they had a solid model to start with and have yet to see a need to change the basic concept.

CW'S test bike this month emanates from a firm that has pioneered two significant motor sports, karts (or go-karts as they are mistakenly referred to), and mini-bikes. The Go-Kart Mfg. Company in Azusa, California, was the first firm to put mini-bikes onto a regular assembly line back in the early part of 1959.

Scooters top the general news this month. Lambretta, old hands at the scooter game, have put a disc brake on the front of one of their models, the TV175. Machines with this modification are at present only available in Italy but quantity production of a disc brake on a two-wheeler is progress indeed.

Certainly no other rider can claim the success that Mike has had in his career since it started in 1957.
