CALIFORNIA TRADITIONALLY has always been sort of the Valhalla for motorcycles. The climate is nearly ideal, and riders, dealers and distributors have always enjoyed an atmosphere that was friendly and receptive to motorcycles for the most part.

How complex will Grand Prix machinery become? These first “naked” photos of the Yamaha four reveal a plumber’s nightmare, but it seems that to obtain 150 mph (requiring about 60 bhp) from a 250cc two-stroke, this is the way one must go about it.

JOHN DUNN
In regard to your answer in the Service Department, September 1966, about STP in a Honda Super Hawk. I made the mistake of adding STP to my Super Hawk about two years ago. STP seems to have an unfortunate property of swelling cork. I had to buy a new clutch about one month after aforesaid operation.

I am enclosing the photo of my NSU “Max,” which is specially built with one thing in mind and that is to go to the motorcycle races, some of which are 180 miles away from home. “Max” is quite a potent lightweight machine with top speed of 102/105 mph (depending on sprockets used).

GAVIN TRIPPE
WITH ONLY ONE MORE round to go in each class, both the 250cc and 500cc World Motocross championships were won, and when the 500 series had its last round in West Germany, only fourth place was changed. In the 250cc class, Sweden’s Torsten Hallman has confounded the experts by winning his third 250 title on the Husqvarna after having been absent from the Circus for two years.

[no value]
ONE CANNOT APPLY the same set of standards to a competition machine that one applies to a street scrambler. In some areas, one is tougher. In other areas, one may be more forgiving. Thus, to clear up any misunderstanding, it should be known at the outset that the Matchless G85CS 500cc single is “strictly for serious.” Otherwise, at $1,400, it would have to be considered the most expensive play bike in production .

IT requires an army of men to properly pull off an event like the International Six Days Trial — and this is precisely what was used to stage the 41st of the old man of endurance trials. The Swedish army financed, planned, controlled and timed the entire event with superhuman efficiency and totally military demeanor.

BONNEVILLE '66 will be a memorable week in motorcycling for several reasons. Stacked up against the ’65 running with its disappointing “bad salt,” it has given the speed merchants welcome encouragement in the form of 15 new records and 15 broken old ones.

THE OUTSTANDING 1-2-3 Bultaco victory in the 250cc class of the 1966 Ulster Grand Prix will go down in motorcycle racing history as one of the most decisive wins by a small factory. Even more startling than the 250 victory, was Tommy Robb’s ride to third place in the 350 race, behind Hailwood and Agostini.

REX
[no value]
THE VISUAL IMPRESSION one gets of the Garelli Rex is that of a Six-Days lightweight suited up for a Sunday ride through the park. Starting with its 19-inch wheels, moving up to its nicely fitted and finished alloy fenders, then to the high, wide bars, its ample, comfortable, sharply trimmed dual seat, and ending with the no-nonsense taillight-license bracket, the little Rex looks every bit of an endurance trials bred machine.

AN EMERGENCY can often bring out the best in people, and the delayed races did just that, inasmuch as it was necessary to hold the sidecar and 250cc races on a Sunday this year to enable riders to attend the usual Bank Holiday Monday meetings on the mainland.

CAROL SIMS
WITH ONE LAP to go, after leading the Springfield, Ill., 50-miler from the start, Mert Lawwill’s powerful Harley faltered, slowed drastically, and the complexion of what had seemed to be a runaway race changed completely. Victim of a burned piston, the leader nursed his ailing mount down the front straightaway as 30,000 fans moaned in sympathy, then turned their attentions to the snarling battle for second, 17 seconds behind.

JAMES A. THOMAS
IT STARTED a couple of weeks ago. I was taking a shortcut through the vacant lot known as the Frumpville City Park, on my way to pick up my unemployment check. A big day. Soon the fantastic sum of $36.44 would be thrust into my hot little hands. The thought of enough money to buy gas for the bike and perhaps even food for the table, boosted my spirits and I ran through the underbrush.

BINGO FOR BULTACO! With a 1-2-3 victory in the 250 class of the Ulster Grand Prix, it was the surprise result at this year’s meeting, run, as usual, in wet conditions on the 7-1/2-mile Dundrod circuit in Northern Ireland. Course alterations at the infamous Leathemstown Bridge section had changed three tricky corners to a fast straight and this accounted for 125 and 500cc lap records by Honda teamsters Ralph Bryans and Mike Hailwood, respectively.

BEFORE YOU RUN the 500-mile National Jack Pine Enduro, they give you a cow bell. Some riders leaving the start at Lansing, Mich., wished they had brought theirs in tow, so they could ring for help before they sank to their ears in mud. At 5:30 a.m. on a damp, overcast Sunday morning, the first of 576 riders left Lansing.

FAIRING-SHIELDS
Bates Industries, Inc., the racing seat people, have engineered a new line of plexiglas fairing-shields, which are contoured to control flow of air around the rider and cut wind resistance. The 3/16inch plexiglas is distortion-free, the company says. Two basic shapes are available in three widths: 22, 18 and 15 inches, with either straight or notched bottoms. The shields are available at motorcycle dealers.

BRACE FOR LIGHTWEIGHTS
$6.95
The front fender on your motorcycle not only shields you from dirt, it also serves structurally, keeping the fork tubes in alignment, and tracking together vertically. Thus, if you remove the fender or if its braces are flimsily built, the bike will behave badly in the rough. This example of a heavy-duty U-brace for dirt machines is made by Circle Industries. It fits a large number of small tubular fork motorcycles: Honda S-90, 160; Hodaka Ace 90; Yamaha 65 to 125cc; and others. It will fit over a 4.00 tire. The brace is made of polished aluminum and costs $6.95. Write Circle at 9914 & 3/4 E. Rush St., Dept. CW, S. E1 Monte, Calif.

W. B. SWIM
MORE JAPANESE motorcycles were exported to war-torn Viet Nam in August than to the United States, Japan’s best customer. The cause was a big sale of 22,000 Honda 50cc machines to the Viet Nam government. They were handed over to Premier Nguyen Cao Ky at a ceremony only one month after the order was given.
