WELCOME TO THE PAGES of CYCLE WORLD'S fourth anniversary issue. Old friends of CW will find a return visit to the subject machine of our very first road test, the redoubtable Triumph Bonneville. They will find little else resembling that first 50-page issue.

GORDON H. JENNINGS
IN THE FUTURE, you will probably hear a lot about "short-rod" engines. Tuners are becoming increasingly interested in this trick and it is one of the few speedtuning techniques not already fully developed. Unfortunately, while the basic idea behind the short-rod technique is sound, it is not without its dangers and disadvantages.

I own a Honda Dream 305 and would like to know if there is some way to put a new Honda Super Hawk cylinder block on to give me a dual carb setup. if so, how much of a difference would it make? Also if I put in Super Hawk pistons and Triumph Tiger Cub valve springs would it greatly improve my performance at the drag strip quarter-mile run?

CYCLE WORLD'S first issue, published four years ago, featured a road test report about Triumph's Bonnevule. Forty-eight months and a hundred road tests later, we return to the Bonneville for our fourth anniversary issue. As one might expect, with the passing of so much time it has become a much better motorcycle, although there has been no major change and even though there is only a fractional increase in performance.

WELL GANG, it's like this. We told Har1ey-Davidson that we wanted a Scrambler; not just a run-of-the-mill Sprint, but an honest-to-goodness, genuine racer. HarleyDavidson has not let us down in the past and, although this was not exactly a showroom model, we were soon presented with a Sprint CRS. To say this machine was up to our expectations would be an understatement.

CHRISTMAS EVE, alone, no money, nowhere to go; he swore softly and walked to a window. Five o'clock and the grey light of day in blizzard had given way to a night of raging wind and driven snow. The lights of the nearby BOQ were barely visible through the storm.

WE HAVE BECOME ACCUSTOMED to large, piston-driven, nitro-fed vehicles turning 400 mph speeds at Bonneville Salt Flats. Now there are jet and rocket propelled creations that are in the 600 mph region. However, on October 23, 1965, a speed of 140 mph made these figures seem puny by comparison.

A TRULY SATISFACTORY TOURING area should offer a variety of attractions to those who come and leave their money behind. Natural scenic beauty is desirable, but interesting places to visit are also important. Beyond this the tourist should be both appreciated and welcome, and New Mexico ranks high on all points.

"A POOR MAN'S BONNEVILLE." That is how a weekend record setting at Elvington airfield in Yorkshire, England might be described, with eighteen men anxious to inscribe their names in the record book. As it is still operational, the public was not admitted to this beautiful airstrip, with a one in seventeen-hundred gradient and two hundred feet wide for almost two miles.

The White 125cc Moto-Cross for 1965, a very business-like scrambler, features 19-inch wheels, racing expansion chamber and a handy 9-inch ground clearance. Massive cylinder finning to cope with the hotter climates in some U.S. areas is the main feature of the "square 54 x 54mm bore/stroke single cylinder two-stroke engine. Compression ratio is 12:1 and the maker claims 15 blip; selling price -$445.00.

Many unusual features appear on the new “Senior L” Valiant for 1966; among these are an electric starter and automatic four-speed transmission, which uses a torque converter. Twelve-volt battery, sealed beam headlight, large diameter taillight take care of the electrics. Engine is a 216cc Lauson four-stroke with stellite valves and, according to the manufacturer, many life-long components. The Hawk tool torque converter eliminates the need for clutch and gear shift controls, so rear brake levers appear on both sides of the machine. Designed for street or trail, the machine is supplied with 4.00 section tires; however, a deep-tread 5.00 rear can be supplied as an extra. Wheel rims come apart to make tire changing easier. The double-loop-type frame gives a claimed 10-inch ground clearance. A quick-change countershaft sprocket assembly makes trail-to-street riding a little easier. All this for only $268.00 crated. The same machine without electric starter is a modest $238.00, and a 125cc version goes for $178.00. Prices include freight. Write to Valiant Manufacturing Corp., Dept. CW, P.O. Box 19243, New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.A. 70119.

How would you like to arrive at a vacation destination aboard your motorcycle, dismount, and within seconds move into the luxury of a camper with 47.5 square feet of living space? It’s possible, with the new Cycle Mate, if you can reconcile yourself to towing a trailer measuring 3 feet high, 4 feet wide and 8V2 feet long. Distributed in Southern California by Two Wheeler, 1655 W. La Cadena Dr., Dept. CW, Riverside, Calif., Cycle Mate unfolds rapidly from its travel dimensions to a center height of 6'8", has three large screened and zippered windows in its turquoise-colored 7.68 oz. tent drill outer covering, a door with two-way zipper and screen, non-skid floor, and a 30 cubic foot storage area. Suggested retail price is $395. Further details, and a listing of available optional equipment, are available from Two Wheeler at the above address, or from Foldo, Inc., Attn: Ed Lundby, 1155 West 8th St., Dept. CW, Corona, Calif. 91720.

We installed Snuff-Or-Not baffles on a scrambler that was sitting around our offices and found them to be quite effective. All that is required is to drill a hole in the exhaust pipe, insert the Snuff-Or-Not, and turn the knob. One way you have open exhaust pipes for competition or, by rotating the knob a quarter turn, the exhaust note is quiet enough for street use. In fact, we found them to be quieter than the mufflers fitted on a couple of our test machines recently. Write to Pacifico, Dept. CW, P.O. Box 398, Portland, Oregon 97207.

BSA has six twin-cylinder 1966 models in addition to a new 175cc two-stroke single and, of course, the one we are all anxious to see, the 441cc Victor. Altogether these machines represent 50 engineering changes over the 1965 models. The aim for the new year is to have a machine to suit every taste. Shown here in road trim is the new Spitfire Mk II; it features such “goodies” as Amal GP carburetors, 10Vi : 1 compression pistons, 190mm front brake, alloy rims and racing seat. The Hornet is shown in competition form, even to skid plate. Color is Mandarin Red and lighting can be fitted.

Last month in this column we talked at some length about the extensive line of speed equipment that Paul Dunstall has developed for Norton twins, both for racing and touring. All very nice, but we neglected to tell you that these items are now available in the U.S. from Sport Motors, Dept. CW, 2512 Gilbert Ave., Cincinnati, Ohio. 45206.

A very handy accessory for owners of Honda CA-95 150cc motorcycles, who want to scramble or go trailing, is a three-piece adaptor kit, which enables one to fit a larger rear sprocket. Nearby photo shows the easily installed kit on one of these machines; further information can be obtained from Webco Inc., 218 Main St., Dept. CW, Venice, Calif.

Motorcycle racing returned Lo Santa Clara Fairgrounds in San Jose, California for The first time in years, this time on a half-mile oval utilizing portions of the mile track used previously. And a good day’s racing ensued, despite the usual delays while the horse racing track surface was conditioned for the needs of flattracking.

SELLOUT Leafing through the November CW at random, and because the cover and much of the contents were devoted to one make of machine, I wondered how much of a share you have in the Yamaha Corporation. RICHARD MAGNER St. Joseph, Mo. ... by gosh, and then the next issue you saw before you had a Harley on the cover, plus the Sportster test, and then there was the October '65 issue with a BMW on the cover and a long story about their history, and don’t forget the Honda 450 on September’s cover with six pages devoted to it, and by all means don’t overlook our August ’65 issue with a Norton on the cover, a road test and the full history of the firm plus a technical run-down on the Norton Manx; we could go on like this for quite a while.

THE MOST THRILLING Grand Prix ever held in Japan is over with Japanese factories again sewing up all the World Championships they contested (reported elsewhere in this issue), and the 12th Tokyo Motor Show is popping enthusiasts’ eyes open with a preview of what’s to come during the next year (also in a separate report); that pretty well sews up the news for this month outside the local racing scene.

LAST MONTH'S NOTES were finished with a paragraph about the tragedy that befell the last Brands Hatch meeting of the season when Florian Camathias crashed his sidecar outfit and died before reaching the hospital. His passenger, Franz Ducret, was not as badly injured as at first thought, has now returned to his home in Switzerland with a broken leg, and is determined to passenger again next season if he can get a ride.

WHAT IS A contact breaker spring? A tiny little thing in a whole motorcycle. Yet it was just a broken contact breaker spring which robbed Italy’s youngest star, Giacomo Agostini, of this year’s world championship title for the 350 class.
