To all you wonderful folks out there in magazine land who have been sending all those nice cards and letters telling us that there is something peculiar about the performance graphs for the H-D and CZ motorcycles in the January issue, we’d just like to say “thanks.”

JOHN DUNN
I own a 1966 Yamaha YDS-3. Most fellows want modifications for more speed, but I would be happy if you could tell me how to detune my engine for more low speed torque. In the area in which I live, we do as much cowtrailing as road riding, and I find the bike not well suited for slow going in loose or sandy terrain.

I was quite intrigued by Speedy Babbs’ “Monstrosity” which was featured in Ivan Wagar’s “The Scene” column of the October issue of CYCLE WORLD. The two-cycle, four-cylinder (horizontally opposed) McCullough engine, most commonly used to power drone target-missiles for armed forces training, are, indeed, still quite available.

ENGLAND’S FAMED REG DEARDON’S foreword to “My Son Mike” states that no words of praise and credit can give Stanley Michael Bailey Hailwood, or “Mike the bike” what he so richly deserves. This is the story of fabled world champion Mike Hailwood’s life-long affair with motorcycles.

THAT A TRIUMPH REPOSED in the winner’s circle at Daytona last year was not an earth-shaking situation; it has long been a widely—and wisely—accepted fact that the Meriden Works twins are capable of some pretty great things. The win, however, was a bit of a surprise, in view of the show of strength by the ever-quick, home-built H-Ds that were favored in the 200-mile climax to the annual Florida speed orgy.

MOTORCYCLE MANUFACTURERS have long displayed a penchant for naming their products in honor of a major race or event, particularly after having experienced some success in the event whose name is chosen to grace a line model. Often as not, a grandly christened new machine bears little resemblance, other than physical, to the number that did the job.

MOTORCYCLING IN THE U. S. is somewhat different from what goes on in the rest of the world. Americans prefer machines that are perfectly legal on the highway and yet can be used for any of the various off-the-road activities that we are able to dream up.

THE ART OF TT scrambles, involving a race through a short, generally smooth, left- and right-turning dirt circuit, is a specialized one. Thus, it is no surprise that many machines, while being excellent in the function for which they were originally designed, do not excel in this sport.

Over the years they have established a well-deserved reputation for building low-cost, reliable transportation bikes that are ideally suited to European buyers.

GEOFFREY WOOD
IN THE GREAT SAGA of international motorcycle racing there are many colorful chapters, but for pure nostalgia and exotic machinery none can equal the story of the Moto Guzzi. Not a common machine in the Americas, this Italian marque has its home on beautiful Lake Como in northern Italy, and the story of its life is one of the most colorful and intriguing in all the world.

MOST OF OUR READERS have never had the opportunity to go overseas to witness the king of enduro-type events. And it's a fairly sure bet that we’ll be sporting a few grey hairs before the FIM even considers the United States as a possible venue for the International Six Day Trial, so it is no surprise that the ISDT remains, for many, a distant, abstract thing.

THE YEAR 1966 will probably prove to be a notable one in the history of British motorcycles, and this was reflected in the Cycle and Motorcycle Show held at Earls Court. There was much to be seen and there was much missing. There were some very new machines, there were some very old ones.

THE WORD, “SLED,” as applied to a motorcycle, means desert racer and probably has origin in the delightful scraping sensation one feels as the skid plate hits ground. But the connotation goes even farther in that the term brings to mind, more often than not, a throbbing big twin from Coventry decked out in appropriate accoutrement.

CORRIGANVILLE, as this event was known until 1964, is about the only super-classic left on the Western calendar since the demise of Catalina and Big Bear. The event changed names when Bob Hope bought the property in 1965 . . . well, sort of changed, for the promoting club had already been naming the event after themselves as a hedge against land speculation.

GENE BOOTH
AN ATMOSPHERE HEAVY with overtones of the Colosseum or Circus Maximus of ancient Rome fills the small, committee size meeting room. It is in stark contrast to the normal intimacy of such a room in Chicago's Conrad Hilton Hotel. But the air of expectation, the hint of slaughter, the anticipation of violence hang heavy, just as they must have centuries ago in those vast and crowded arenas.

FORMER SPEEDWAY and grass-track star Alf Hagon is Britain’s most prolific builder of dragster specials. He's built them with almost every type of engine with the exception of Honda units — but now he's corrected this omission with a 450cc supercharged machine with which he hopes to take records early in the new year.

THE WORD IS OUT about the Netherlands. Most everyone, for example, knows Holland has windmills, wooden shoes, tulips, an out-of-control population which registers 920 people to the square mile, and inflation. And if that unknown kid hadn’t jammed his thumb into the dike, there’d be no Netherlands at all.

THROUGHOUT ITS HISTORY, motorcycling has had its magic product names. The like of JAP, Manx, Gilera Four, Amal GP and Goldstar have earned their respected positions not through press-agentry, but through performance. A new name has been added to the list in recent years — Metisse — and like the other marques, its revered position has been earned.

The crushing ease with which the three-time 250cc world motocross champion, Torsten Hallman defeated all comers in the United States and Canada, must be evident to those who have seen him. To be fair, most of his opponents were not the sort of full-time professional that Mr. Hallman himself is.

Benelli also makes a 50cc mini-bike utilizing a two-stroke engine with a four-speed footshift. By folding the handlebars down, the rider may easily fit the machine into the trunk of a car. Cosmo also imports the Parilia Wildcat 250cc scrambler, a torquer which the company claims is ready to race. The machine is available with lights and Smith tachometer.

YETMAN FRAME
Yetman, the frame people, have come up with a sexy new lightweight (16.5 pounds) conversion to house a Ducati 250cc engine. The frame is of full double-loop construction and a four-point swing arm mounting system is used which utilizes the full eight-inch width of the stock Ducati swing arm for maximum rigidity. Material for the frame is low carbon, seamless 16-gauge steel tubing of 5/8-inch and one-inch diameter. Tensile strength is rated at 182,000 PSI. It is low-temperature welded with No. 16 high-nickel alloy rod, using an in-line fluxer (flux is fed into the gas to simulate controlled environment welding). Tensile strength of this process is rated at 100,000 PSI. The frame is supplied with battery box and special swing arm mounting hardware. A matching three-gallon fuel tank and other accessories are available. Price on request from The Yetman Corporation, Dept. CW, 277 Rantoul St., Beverly, Mass., 01915.
