CYCLE WORLD has a new British import, new to us anyway. His name is Russell Brockbank. To millions of his fans in England, the name is simply Brockbank. Readers of England's Motor magazine weekly for more than 25 years have enjoyed the antic views of Major Upsett.

Congratulations to you and your road-testing staff. Your descriptions of performance are restrained and believable-altogether quite objective. This makes your reports valuable to prospective bike purchasers. CYCLE WORLD as a whole is a businesslike publication, not given to campiness or hip talk.

I recently purchased a 1955 TR5 Triumph Trophy which is in excellent condition, having been carefully stored for the past eight years. I am in the process of making a new aluminum cylinder for this machine, which has a bore of 74 mm. This will increase the displacement of my machine from 500 to 687 cc.

ONE of the biggest headaches an editor suffers is lead time. This is a common term in the magazine biz, and refers to the amount of time necessary to put something into print—and on the newsstand. At this moment I am three hours away from jumping on a jet for London and the Isle of Man, to cover the 1968 TT races.

WHEN AN overseas manufacturer builds a new large displacement motorcycle, intended to appeal directly to the American market, what is the result? In the case of Italy's Laverda company, the end product is the American Eagle, a twin-cylinder four-stroke with electric starter, produced in 650and 750-cc versions.

THOSE FLEET and fast 360-cc scramblers have left behind in their cackling exhaust notes an image of supermen on supermachines, storming to race wins on motocross tracks the world over. Today, as improved techniques enable designers to avoid the pitfall of severe overheating, these single-cylinder two-strokes are gaining in engine size.

WITH PRACTICE for the 1968 Isle of Man TT races starting over Whitsun holiday weekend, many stars were absent for the initial four training sessions, all of which were devoted to solo classes, omitting the 50-cc machines. The Monday of Whitsun weekend is a holiday in England, with major motorcycle race meetings scheduled throughout the country.

EACH YEAR road accident figures climb even higher, and with them the individual rider's chance of being injured. In an effort to reduce the total number of accidents and to minimize the injuries received during an accident, the University of Birmingham, England, has been working toward designing and building a new, safer motorcycle.

A JET takes just 27 hours to cover the 14,000 miles between London, England, and Sydney, Australia. A passenger ship makes it in five sun-drenched weeks. Either way the traveler arrives relaxed and in one piece. For travelers who desire more excitement than coffee, tea, or milk, there is the overland route, blowouts, breakdowns, insects, dust, heat, and monsoons.

I HATE to see a motorcyclist in trouble, so I pulled over on the shoulder and parked. One look made me wish I hadn't. The small Twin appeared to have disintegrated. The plugs were out; and the magneto inspection cover was off; the carburetor and air cleaner had been stripped to the last tiny washer—and thoughtfully laid out on a patch of gravel; and assorted wires hung like dead spaghetti.

COMPETITION among makers of light-weight trail bikes is as fierce as in any other class of machinery. This intensity results in continually improving products, much to the customer's benefit. An example of the constant development of these sporty dual purpose machines is Bridgestone's new 100 Trail, a mount that reflects the trend toward greater sophistication among small displacement trail motorcycles.

MASSACHUSETTS ski country in the spring is green and watery. Snow and skiers gone, the country side turns into quick-running streams, burgeoning under-brush, and miles of mire for motorcyclists. Intersport, Inc.'s 4th annual Berkshire International Trial made much of the seasonal muck.

WHEN Walter Gruenberg bought his BMW R69S, it was "one big ball of rust and dents, the fork was way out of line, and it was leaking oil badly. The bike had been wrecked in Panama." Six months, $2300, and endless hours of work later, Walter was the owner of a super-fast BMW with the appearance of a showroom model.

KEN CRAVEN
IN PLANNING an 8500-mile motorcycle sidecar tour of North America, it obviously was necessary first to choose (1) a motorcycle, and (2) a sidecar. The choice of the mount was mine, and the sidecar, logically, was selected by my wife, Mollie.

WHAT HAPPENS when a civilian government employe and his family, all of whom happen to be motorcycle enthusiasts, are transferred to Germany? They seek out and attend motorcycle events, naturally. The Griffitts clan has found most exciting and fascinating the sidecar racing meets on grass or sand tracks of Germany, which, at other times, are used for horse and greyhound racing.

THE EXPANDER
$24.95
For youthful riders who require an expandable headband, and for all riders who desire an exact fit, the Buco Protector II offers a head suspension unit, adjustable from size six and one-half to size seven and three-eighths. Inside a reinforced fiberglass shell is the energy absorbing layer of Bucolite. Inside this layer is Buco's floating cap, designed to disperse impact forces. A crown pad, the adjustable suspension band, removable weather protectors, and resilient plastic chinstrap cup are additional Protector II features. The helmet, leader in Buco's "Half-Jet" line, is available from dealers for $24.95, complete with visor and goggle strap at the rear. The snap-on ear protectors are $2.95 per set. Additional information is available from the Buco Products Division, American Safety, Dept. CW-8, 21220 W. 8 Mile Road, Southfield, MI 48076, or Dept. CW-8, 1550 N. Peach Ave., Fresno, CA 93702. All Buco products are thoroughly tested; the firm's helmets meet the standards set forth by the United States of America Standards Institute (Z90.1); the Motorcycle, Scooter and Allied Trades Association; and the AMA. The full range of Buco products is listed in the company's 1968 catalog. In addition to helmets for men, women, and children, other items in the catalog include goggles and faceshields, rear view mirrors, clothing, cycle bags and luggage racks, a variety of windscreens, and an excellent first aid kit, costing $5.95.

HONDA 500 KIT
$65
Owners of Honda 450 machines now can increase engine piston displacement to a full 500 cc with the aid of a new big bore kit available for $65 from Powroll Performance. This company already manufactures stroker and big bore kits for Hondas from 50 cc upward, and includes in its range a kit to increase piston displacement of 450s to 470 cc. This conversion is claimed to increase maximum power from 43 bhp at 8500 rpm to 52 bhp at 10,000 rpm. The new 500 kit, which provides an actual piston displacement of 497 cc, uses similar, but larger, components. It consists of two high-dome silicon alloy pistons, rings, and four Teflon pin retainers to replace the conventional spring clips. Powroll soon will market kits to increase displacement of the new 125 Hondas to 160 and 175 cc, and to 375 cc or a full 350 cc for the new 350 Hondas. The firm's stroker kits avoid the need for cylinder spacers, crankcase machining, and other complications, because Powroll actually shortens the connecting rod slightly—and offers a lifetime guarantee against this component breaking at the point of shortening. The customer's crankshaft is returned in a fully assembled condition, and it can then be bolted directly into the motorcycle, without any further machining. The stroker kits are suitable for Honda 50s, 55s, S-65s, and 90s. Among other Powroll speciallies for Hondas are high compression pistons for competition riders who wish to increase their overhead cam Honda 90s to 99 cc. The kit includes piston, rings, two Teflon pin retainers, and a special head gasket. The price is $25.95. A catalog listing kits for all Hondas from 50 to 450 cc is priced at $1.25, or information on a specific model is available for 50 cents in coin or stamps, from Powroll Performance, Dept. CW-8, P.O. Box 926, Bend, OR 97701.

HOGAN'S HEROS
$2.25
Hogan Ltd., Dept. CW-8, P.O. Box 31, Woodland Hills, CA 91364, has produced a colorful new line of T-shirts depicting famous motorcycle events. Lettering and illustrations on the shirts are by a heat-treated, rubberized dye, which, the maker says, will not fade. Priced at $2.25 each, plus 25 cents postage, the shirts are available in small, medium and large sizes for men and boys, with an additional extra large size for men. At the moment, five different designs are offered. The designs mark Triumph's success in earning the AMA No. 1 plate for 1968, BSA's win in the 1967 Ascot 8-Mile National, the 1967 Hopetown International Motocross, the 1966 Sacramento National one-mile dirt track race, and the 1967 Pacific Coast Dirt Track Championship. Race promoters have the opportunity to order shirts at a quantity discount.

CHAIN CARE
$2
Two spray-on chain care products are available from the Valvoline Oil Co., Dept. CW-8, 3600 Union Pacific Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90023, and from service stations and motorcycle shops. Chain Klean costs $2 for a 16-oz. can, and cleans chain within 30 sec. No after cleaning is necessary—chains are left dry and bright. Chain Klean also is useful for distributor points, spark plugs, and electric motors. Chain Life costs $1.50 for a 4-oz. can, or $3 for 16 oz. It instantly penetrates deeply into chain roller and link surfaces, and forms a non-oily surface that does not attract dust or sand. Chain Life is claimed to with-stand heat and centrifugal force, and to adhere to chain even at the fastest speeds.
Powroll Performance, Dept.
SAFETY IN FIBERGLASS
$30.95
Fi-Pro safety helmet Model 880 has been fully approved by the AMA for use in Group 1 competition, and Model 990 has been tested and approved by the Snell Memorial Foundation. Both designs utilize top quality fiber-glass, and inner liners are of material which affords great resistance to impact. Chinstraps are double riveted to the shell, and feature an extra snap fitting to enable the end of the strap to be secured. Snaps accept all visors and faceshields. Available sizes are small, medium, large, and extra large. Standard colors are white, black, and competition orange, and metalflake colors are red, blue, gold and silver. The 990 costs $30.95 in a basic color, or $32.95 in metalflake. Corresponding prices for the 880 are $29.95 and $31.95. Fiberglass Productions, Dept. CW-8, Fi-Pro Helmet Division, P.O.Box 602, San Marcos, CA 92069, will provide additional details. ■

Only one rider survived the carnage of men and machines that formed the 1968 Little Burr Enduro, contested over three laps of an 88-mile course near Lake Hope, Ohio. The rider was, perhaps inevitably, the great John Penton, who only two weeks earlier had achieved a similar feat with his 350 Husqvarna in the Berkshire International Trial.
