The Federation Internationale Motorcycle met in Brussels, Belgium recently to set rules for 1963 and to establish the racing calendar for the forthcoming season. Most significant ruling to come out of the meeting was the change in engine sizes; no engines under 350cc will be allowed to race in the Senior TT at the Isle Of Man or in any other 500cc race.

Regarding your June road test of the BMW R69S. It was, all in all, a concise and well-stated report, except in one department; top speed. You stated that when fully run-in, the top speed of said machine would probably be around 108-110 mph.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS of the 1962 London Motor Cycle Show were of a resurgence in the British industry and that the predominance of machines were either genuine vintage models or fifty cc. For this Show was a departure from the usual practice and proved to be a popular change.

HENRY MANNEY
THE MOTORCYCLE SCENE is very different in France from that in the United Kingdom or for that matter the United States. Due to high internal taxes, the astounding cost of fuel (around a dollar a gallon), the low earning power of the workingman, and a tendency to use motorcycles solely for transportation, most of the domestic production runs from 200cc downwards with a strong accent on mopeds or velomoteurs.

SEEKERS AFTER NOVELTY were not too well served at the 5th International Motorcycle Show in Frankfurt, Germany, though a couple of intriguing trends came through quite clearly. Two of Germany's most successful bike builders - in a sport ing sense - didn't bother to come at all: Kreidler and Maico.

MERRY ENGLAND is the spiritual home of the highspeed scrambles, and it is only natural that they would produce outstanding machines for that kind of competition. There are a number of firms that specialize in the production of scramblers and these scramblers are, without exception, top-flight.

BROADLY SPEAKING, all of the machines that transport human beings across the surface of this globe can be classified as either utilitarian, or sporting. Motorcycles, like most automobiles, etc., seldom fall entirely into either category; they are a blending of both.

T.T. ACTIVITY IN CALIFORNIA is increasingly widespread, with six different tracks scheduling major races during the regular season, and a nationally televised Championship event capping the year's calendar. From F.1 Cajon, Lancaster and Ascot in Southern California to Selma in the Central part of the state, and Vallejo and Hayward in the Northern portion, rider participation and crowd appeal have grown steadily.

$1,500.
An immaculately maintained example of the 1955 Vincent Black Lightning factory built racing model, owned by Bill Cottom of San Pedro, California. The 50 degree, V-twin, displaced 1000cc (61 cubic inches), employed huge dual Amal carburetors, wide angle large valve heads, and was rated at 75 horsepower! Polished parts were standard; these machines were hand assembled and sold for over $1,500. A similar model achieved 160 mph at Bonneville, proving the claim to the World's fastest motorcycle.
VAUGHN GREENE
IN APRIL 1917 a young British flying officer was shot down and captured by the Germans. To while away the monotonous hours of his captivity, the young flier dreamed of building the perfect motorcycle. This was Howard Davies and after the war he started building the motorcycle he'd dreamed about, the HRD. It was a hairy, temperamental machine with a powerful fascination but, ironically, the HRD name never became widely known until it was added to another great name, the Vincent.

THE CYCLE WORLD testing trails got a better than average workout this month when we attacked them with the Steen Timberline, a new trail scooter sporting some features that qualify it for more than a passing glance. Its overall appearance is much the same as that of most trail scooters, but a closer examination uncovers several very interesting features.

THIS BOOK COVERS, in almost overwhelming detail, most of the theory and practical rules relating to the design, as the rather ponderous title states, of exhaust and intake systems. Wave formations, wave propagation, gas and wave speeds, effects of temperature and pressure, all of this and more is contained — say entomed, in this text.
