I have a Honda 305 which has proven to be a fine machine except that it does not have the performance I would like. It floats the valves at 8000 rpm in low and second. Then, in third, it picks up to 9000 with a speedometer reading of 95 mph. How can I get my rpm starting off the run?

HIGH SPEED SCRAMBLES racing presents special, and severe, problems. This type of competition is very hotly contested, there being a lot of good machines active in the sport, and speed is essential. And, the speed itself requires that the machines involved have both power and stability, as power alone is no good if the rider finds himself unseated too often.

ALL-PURPOSE MOTORCYCLES very rarely succeed in fully meeting the manufacturer’s intent. They are supposed to function equally well on the road, or in the dirt, and with a very few notable exceptions, they manage only to do poorly in both. One of the exceptions is Harley Davidson’s Sprint H, which does everything very well — and a couple of things superbly.

SIDECAR RACING
The most spectacular form of motorcycle road racing has to be seen to be believed.

TONY HOGG
THERE ARE MANY VARIATIONS on the theme of road racing and the most spectacular of all, and one that has yet to be introduced to America, is sidecar racing. This branch of the sport enjoys tremendous popularity among the European racing spectators and is so well established that, as in car racing and solo motorcycle racing, it warrants a World Championship of its own.

HAVING COVERED, in tiresome detail, the theoretical aspects of frame and suspension design in last month’s opening article on the subject, we are now ready to proceed into a discussion of more immediate usefulness: the elements of actually designing and constructing an original creation.

ROUNDING A BEND on my Lambretta 150, I came face to face with a pride of twelve African lions - only one of the many occasions on which I was to recall a Dutch sea captain's words: "A motor scooter trip through Africa may sound like fun, but if you make it alive, I'll swim around this ship naked.

TWO EXAMPLES OF WHAT may soon become one of the most popular lines of Japanese-built motorcycles are the subject of this month’s road impression; the 155cc Pointer Comet and the 90cc Super Lassie. Both are full fledged motorcycles and both are heavily sprinkled with interesting features.

FAILING ALL ELSE the weather can always be a topic of conversation, especially as an opening between strangers, but it should hardly be the way to start a column on motorcycling. That it is necessary is due to the fact that we have had snow and ice as never before in the history of our two-wheeled sport leading to the cancellation of many events over the past six weeks, including the important national Vic Brittain and Colmore trials.

FOR MOST OF US, being a champion in one sport would be more than enough, but Don Haddow of Toronto, Canada has proven his ability in three demanding sports — skiing, motorcycle racing and car hillclimbing. Skiing, his earliest love, gave him the Ontario Junior Ski Jumping Championship at a time when he was just beginning to discover the thrill of racing.

B. R. Nicholls
IT IS SURPRISING the number of successful moto-cross riders who come from farming stock. Torsten Hallman is one of the best examples, for a world title is the highest a rider can travel in his branch of any sport. Twenty-three-year-old Torsten is a native of Vistka where he lives on his father’s farm with a brother and two sisters.
