JOSEPH C. PARKHURST
The January 1963 issue of Argosy, one of the many large circulation men’s adventure magazines, contains a story with some parts I cannot quite believe. Mainly because I was there. I refer to the cover story of Dave Ekins and Bill Robertson’s Honda-sponsored motorcycle trip from Tijuana, Mexico to La Paz at the tip of Baja California (963 Mile Trial, CYCLE WORLD June 1962).

We have been reading your wonderful magazine since the first issue. All of the technical articles are well written, but deal with accepted models built with an eye on speed and performance. What we would like from you is a fearless series on tuning the large Harleys, FLH, etc.; going into detail and even quoting part numbers and listing the makers of the necessary parts.

ONE YEAR AGO, give or take a few days, we were given a Norton Manxman to road test, and while there were a few things about the machine that we thought could be improved (we think every motorcycle can be improved), it still left us very impressed indeed.

ITALIAN LIGHTWEIGHTS have always impressed us as having an uncommonly finely balanced mixture of practical and sporting charactertistics. There are a great many motorcycles manufactured in Italy, and our observations, made in that country, bring us to the conclusion that there is not a one of them that does not have at least some of the appearance and flavor of an out-and-out racing motorcycle.

NECKARSULM IS A TOWN more or less in the center of Germany. Roughly in the middle of Neckarsulm — just follow the blue signs — there is a three-story building called the Deutsches Zweirad Museum, or German two-wheel museum, with a guest book that covers our favorite mode of fun and transport from way back then to the days of the Honda racing team.

BENGT BJORKLUND
ONE OF THE MOST THRILLING forms of motorcycle racing is ice racing. This phase of the sport was born in Sweden and is, at the moment, practiced in four European countries — Sweden, Norway, Finland and Soviet Russia. The latter nation has become increasingly active, and several matches between the four active countries finished with victories for the Russians last winter.

PROBABLY THE LARGEST TITLE ever bestowed on SO small a machine graces the Yamaha Omaha Trail 50 (we can’t explain the “Omaha” either), and we know of no more undeserving a subject. We had a passing meeting with this machine in our August 1962 issue when the staff adjourned to the back country to assemble our feature on trailing; since that time we have been wanting to examine the bike closer and on its own grounds Our test grounds were the high altitude desert outside of Los Angeles.

GORDON H. JENNINGS
THE UNCOMPLICATED APPEARANCE of motorcycle frames and suspensions have often lead the casual student of design to assume that these items present an uncomplicated engineering problem. This assumption is very natural, and it is very, very wrong.

A NOTICEABLY GROWING interest in the realm of observed trials has been felt in many parts of the United States, and New Jersey is no exception. The impetus has been accelerated there through the efforts of one of the country’s most active competition clubs, the Cycle Alley Riders, whose recently - sponsored trials were well attended by many of the east’s top exponents of the sport.

GERMANY, long known for its products of excellent workmanship and engineering, produces some truly unique devices designed for the transporting of people. Most German-built machines, be they automobile, motorcycle or motor scooter, lean towards the rather large and heavy side of things with silence of operation and comfort foremost in consideration.

IN THE November issue of CYCLE WORLD we reported on the achievements of Rudy Garcia, and L. W. Waterman at the recent Bonneville speed trials where they rode their twin engined machine to a speed of 164.985 mph. We followed their progress back to Claude Salmon’s cycle shop in Alameda, Calif, where the twin engined monster was built, to find Garcia and Walter Ross, builders of the Harley double-threat, preening it for even further accomplishments.

The Excelsior featured in your January issue is not a 1914, it is a 1913 model. The Eclipse clutch was on the motor, not on the counter shaft. The sketch shows the intake rocker arms were also different. The main reason I claim this is that I worked for the Schwinns in 1917 and have had a cycle repair shop since 1912.

JAPANESE MOTORCYCLE MAKERS have asked the government to lower the price of foreign motorcycles imported from abroad. In effect, the makers begged the government to lower import tariffs.
