GORDON H. JENNINGS
I have a 1960 Ducati which has 98 cubic centimeters, and I am interested in getting more speed out of it. Could you tell me how to accomplish this? Money is a problem. Also, do you recommend boring out the cylinder to obtain more cubic centimeters?

BOYD REYNOLDS
BEFORE THE RACE, a rider busies himself in the pits, caught up in a personal rhythm that tolerates no break. Unsmiling, he chats with friends or checks his mount over and over, finding small adjustments to make. His motorcycle stands before him, each bolt, each instrument, intended for one purpose; speed.

ALTHOUGH none of our staff had ever ridden a unicycle before, much less a racing unicycle, we jumped at the chance to test the Uno-Guzzi R69. The R69 is the latest in a long line of thoroughbred racing and road machines from the famous Uno-Guzzi factory in Monoposto, Italy.

THE ENFIELD TRADEMARK, whether it is applied to firearms or the motorcycles with which most of us are familiar, has always been associated with machinery that scores well in the test of time. Whatever else has been said about Enfield products, they have gained a reputation for being made to last; or, as the boys in the back of the shop used to say about the Enfield motorcycle, “It’s not much for speed, but it sure is hell for strong.” However, over the past few years the situation has been changing and now, with the introduction of Enfield’s 3/4-liter Interceptor, the trademark is being carried by a machine that is just as fast as it is strong — and that really says a lot.

AN OLD SAYING tells us that “good things come in small packages” and this ancient bromide never had more meaning than when applied to motorcycles. Big bikes are, we admit, very exciting — their sheer speed guarantees that. Small bikes on the other hand, are not quite as exciting, but they still hustle from one corner to the next quite quickly.

Now second in AMA national standings with 22 points, Markel also clocked fast qualifying time of the day over the halfmile oval (27.61) aboard his HarleyDavidson.

GORDON H. JENNINGS
THE RECIPROCATING-TYPE, internal combustion engine has a great many fundamental disadvantages. It has a total lack of zero-speed torque, and must be cranked up into its operating range before it will run at all, and it has an unfortunate tendency toward self-incineration.

HONDA Motor Co., Ltd., will add new scope to their already well established fame this year with the addition of two new cycles and an automobile to their line. The cycles are designated the CR-110 and CR-93, a 50cc and 125cc respectively. The factor that makes this significant news is that both machines are road versions of two of the factory racing bikes with four valves and double overhead cams.

THE ever expanding world of mini-bikes took a new turn with the arrival of the Caper Cycle Kingfisher from Ben Hunt Mfg. Co., 14 S. Palouse St., Walla Walla, Washington. The subject of the exact point of separation between a mini-bike, and a pure trail bike, is a rather fine line.

TONY HOGG
THE Point Reyes Cafe Racers Society was formed some five years ago by a group in the San Francisco area for the sole purpose of riding 35 miles each Sunday morning to Point Reyes to eat breakfast. The founder of the feast is Englishman Pete Adams who plies his trade of cycle dealer at Marin Motorcycles in Sausalito across the bay from San Francisco, and it is greatly to his credit that this weekly excursion has taken place, rain or shine, almost without exception for the last five years.

SOUTHERN California’s chapter of the American Federation of Motorcyclists began the new racing season recently with two races held almost on successive weekends. Both meets were good ones, emphasizing that no matter how close competition was last year in AFM races (and it was plenty close) things will be even more competitive this season.

SLONIGER
YOU don’t have to be a metallurgist to build a winning motorcycle, but vast light - metal experience certainly helps Kreidler stuff some 9 hp into a 50cc racing bike weighing no more than 130 pounds, and probably a fair slice less. This latest Renn-Florett has been raced successfully, winning both its first race and its first world championship run easily, since our pre-season notes, and the figures are more complete.

THIS, the first classic meeting of the 1962 season counting toward the World championships, lacked races for the 350 and 500cc machines but nevertheless promised some exciting racing which indeed proved to be the case. Honda must have left the circuit wondering whether the world crowns which looked so surely theirs are so secure after all.

The general tone of your articles is contentious. They are written in a “take it or leave it” the “master has spoke” style that I detest. In only seven issues you have given me the impression that you don’t need me, but that I need you. I attributed all of the above to the ignorance and immaturity of youth and was prepared to simply ignore it until my subscription ran out.

PRESS dates being what they are it was not possible for an appraisal of the situation after this year’s races in the Isle of Man. The most notable and serious slant is that the races are in danger of losing their status as the “world’s finest”. The reasons are twofold but both are signs of the times in which we now live.
