Never a believer in rumors, if I can avoid it, a recent, persistent one coming down the pike is that the mighty Ford Motor Co. is going into the motorcycle business. I won’t reveal my several sources, but “a reliable source of information” tells me that they have bought a large West German firm and will soon come out with a 125cc and 250cc four-cycle motorcycle.

Due to the tremendous volume of Service Dept. mail, we are unable to reply to individual letters. We shall continue to answer as many as space permits in this column. I am considering building a two-stroke wet sump lubricated engine. Instead of a fuel-oil-air mixture going into the crankcase before being sucked into the cylinder where it is compressed and ignited, a fuel-air mixture would be sucked directly into the cylinder on the down stroke of the piston.

NEARLY EVERYONE HAS heard of the Society of Automotive Engineers. What you may not have heard is that the SAE is very much more than a social club. It serves a valuable function in the interchange of ideas and information via the publication of engineering papers.

I happen to be the daughter of a college professor. I guess some kids would like this, but some kids don't like motorcycles. My father says, in one sentence, motorcycles are dangerous, only for boys, not for nice people, expensive and I want one for a status symbol and not for the investment, even though he has never ridden even a moped and he is scared of them, he refuses to look at any facts or figures about them, and the president of the college's son has one.

GREEVIES' TFS "Trail" motorcycle is badly named, if the name conjures up visions of under-lOOcc engine displacements and skinny little tires. On the other hand, the name describes very accurately the sort of use for which this Greeves is intended.

F-1TR

[no value]
HAVING AN ENGINE DISPLACEMENT of 175cc (actually, 169cc) this Kawasaki model F1TR motorcycle is one of the "biggest" in that broad category of trail bikes. The natural result of the relatively large displacement is an extra margin of performance, and we found that this margin gives the bike a much wider range of usefulness than is customary among machines of the type.

THERE IS, it turns out, more than one way to build a Metisse. The "easy" way is to pull out the old checkbook and send off to the Rickman brothers in England and they will mail you one (1) Metisse frame kit into which you can stuff the engine of your choice with, hopefully, only a minimum of hacking and bending.

ASK THE MAN who owns one. He'll tell you it's true. The person who rides a cycle or scooter gets more fun out of life. He has more adventures in a week of riding than he does in a whole year of driving the family’s four-wheel gas burner. He goes out on two wheels whenever he can.

The Buyer Should Still Beware

BRYAN LLOYD
THROUGH0UT THE YEAR, used motorcycles are bought and sold; some people find pleasure and utility in their purchase while others seem to buy nothing but trouble. Following the proper procedure in selecting a used motorcycle can greatly eliminate the chances of getting the proverbial “lemon.” Naturally, you are safer buying a used machine from a dealer who offers a warranty of some type than from a private individual.

GEOFFREY WOOD
THE TRIUMPH MOTORCYCLE, like many of its other British brothers, had its beginnings in the bicycle industry. Founded in 1885 in London, the early history of the Triumph Company is very nearly lost in the mists of time. The founder of the company was, surprisingly, not an Englishman, but rather a German by the name of Siegfried Bettmann.

UNTIL LAST JUNE our friends and relatives would probably have described Jim and me as being a quiet, sober, middle aged, middle income couple, living an ordinary, somewhat withdrawn, rather uneventful life. That would have been a fairly accurate description of us too, that is, prior to June, prior to the day Jim became Suzuki-smitten.

DAN HUNT
MOTORCYCLES are photographic creatures. Sitting still or carving up roadway, no matter the model or year, they are alive, magnetic and they beg for you to get out that camera and record their beauty of line and motion. A good part of the in terest you get from CYCLE WORLD is in the photos, which make up a hefty part of the editorial and advertising content and draw you into a story or into the text on what a manufacturer has to say about his product.

Putting it together for customer Ralph Smith of Columbus, Ohio, was almost like old times to Dick Rios, whose drag race experience with similar bikes goes back to the old Santa Ana (Calif.) strip circa 1956.

THOMAS FIRTH JONES
AN ENDURO IS LIKE A sports car rally in that it is run for several hours — or days — over a course that does not repeat itself, and the winner is the rider who keeps closest to an official average speed. Two riders start every minute, and each is credited with 1,000 points.

THOSE INSCRUTABLE ENGINEERS at Yamaha have done it again. After convincing us, with the YG-1, that the logical approach to under-100cc two-stroke engines is a rotary-valve single, Yamaha has made a complete switch. Their latest model, the YL-1, is a 97cc twin, with piston-controlled inlet ports.

EXCEPT FOR A FEW minor flaws, the Gilera 98cc Town and Country may very well be one of the finest little trail bikes ever to come our way. We did not like the rigid footpegs, which led to getting trapped a couple of times in narrow places. The seat is too narrow, too hard and too slippery.

THE SMOOTH PAVEMENT of Cincinnati Gardens provided plenty of action for the growing crowd of short track enthusiasts in Cincinnati, Ohio. Tough competition was offered from many out-of-state riders such as Gary Nixon and former Grand National Champion Roger Reiman, riding for the first time since fracturing his leg in the 110-Mile National Road Race.

250cc Challenger
Headlining the 1966 Greeves line of motorcycles is the new 250cc Challenger, the model that has made quite a niche for itself in scrambles, TT and cross-country races. The all-Greeves engine has proven very reliable and now incorporates a new gearbox, strong enough for 650cc machines says the distributor. Primary chain is the duplex type, and a new three-gallon fuel tank is now fitted. Greeves now has an 8%-inch overall diameter head, designed to keep the engine cool under the most rugged conditions. Full-circle flywheels incorporate a strong racing-type rod assembly. Forks of Greeves’ own design has long been a strong point and have proven to deliver a smooth ride over the roughest surfaces. (See road test, this issue). We very much like the use of aircraft type locknuts on all models.The Moto-Cross model incorporates several changes, such as new fenders and braces, mufflers that will accommodate spark arresters, and now mounts the Challenger cylinder, piston, head and larger fuel tank. Simple removal of the muffler and installation of a tuned pipe converts this model for scrambles use. Subject of the road test in this issue is the 250cc Trail Greeves; full details are listed on page 45. Greeves, long a trials winner throughout the world, now offers the 250cc Trials “Anglian” with a new 63áinch travel front fork and ten-inch ground clearance, plus 21" front, and 19" rear wheels. The Anglian is a replica of the machine used by factory riders in England. For the road rider Greeves delivers the 250cc Sports Twin using the Villiers 4T two-cylinder engine and four-speed gear box, in-unit, of course. Riding comfort is said to be outstanding, and gas mileage is claimed to be 72 mpg with a high degree of reliability and low maintenance. Polished alloy fenders against a blue finish are standard. Greeves is distributed in the U.S. by Nicholson Mtrs., 11629 Vanowen St., Dept. CW, North Hollywood, Calif.

radio antenna
According to one of the nation’s leading radio antenna makers, one of the most serious problems facing motorcycle riders in traffic is that of being seen by their four-wheeled enemies, the automobiles. Called “Cycle-Guard,” this new product consists of a vertical fiberglass antenna whip similar in construction to professional communication antennas, but made of brilliant fluorescent international orange material that can be seen for miles. Developed by Antenna Specialists Co., of Cleveland, it is an outgrowth of their line of “Colorguard” fluorescent orange antennas for. police, fire department, civil defense, and radio installations.

Cycle Sno-Go
Enter a new winter sport, with a gadget that makes it possible to take a motorcycle onto snow. It is done with an attachment consisting of a tractor to replace the rear wheel and a set of skis to carry the front over the snow. Called the Cycle Sno-Go, it fits most lightweights, like the Triumph Mountain Cub, Honda Trail 90, Yamaha Trailmaster, and Suzuki Hillbilly. Speeds up to 20 mph are possible, with excellent traction. It can be used with bikes as small as 50cc if high speed is not desired. It should be a boon to the frustrated winter motorcycle enthusiast, and we can probably expect to see some form of competition come from it. Contact surface is 990 square inches with skis, with a per-square-inch weight of only 6 ounces. Each track has 7 x 34inch surface in contact with the snow; overall width is 32 inches; weight, including skis, is only 130 pounds. Conversion takes 30 to 40 minutes, and requires removal of the rear wheel.

SCOOTER STORIES are usually not popular with motorcycle magazines, but this is a special case. The new Vespa “Super Sprint” 90, introduced at the recent Milan Show, is such an unsual scooter in both shape and performance that we believe these notes will prove interesting and refreshing even to the keenest motorcyclist.
