JOE PARKHURST
The motorcycle industry looks like it is approaching a stabilizing point. After the most fantastic period of growth any sport has ever seen—over 1000 percent since 1960—things seem to be leveling off. All we experts have been predicting the occasion for some time, and it’s a shame we didn’t start a pool when we were all making our wild forecasts.

My Yamaha 180 is sick. I am experiencing a severe loss of power, such that the bike is incapable of exceeding 50 mph downhill or 30 mph uphill. Acceleration is minimal, and, except in first gear, the engine bucks and gurgles from one-third to full throttle.

MY ARMS ached from holding the bars of the Yamaha 80 steady in the darkness. Ahead, my buddy, Don Bennett, struggled over the sharp lava and loose rock, his headlight probing the darkness that surrounded us. My own headlight was out, and I was trying to follow Don’s erratic beam when I felt the ground give way under my fork.

IT’S ATTRACTIVE. Chrome and blinker/reflector doodads abound. Give the engine a few hundred miles to loosen up, and it puts out an astonishing amount of broad range power. Were it not for the fact that it looks so stylized, Suzuki’s new TS-250 Savage could pass for a serious dirt bike.

BEAUTIFUL downtown Burbank, that California city nationally recognized as recipient of ridiculous ridicule, is home of the Korff Corp., which is manufacturer of a new recreation vehicle, the Mini-K. Though it’s built in Burbank, the Mini-K is no “Laugh-In” matter—despite the facts that it is not a motorcycle, but is powered and licensed as is a bike; that it is not a sports car, yet seats two, and can be fitted with a snug convertible top; and that, though it is a threewheeler, when hard driven its handling characteristics resemble nothing so much as a four-wheeled go-kart, which can be hurled around corners with ultimate ease.

A HONDA is a rare article—on dirt tracks, that is. The clay oval sport long has been dominated by BSA Gold Star, Triumph and Harley-Davidson. Oh, once in awhile a Yamaha or Suzuki will rise to race prominence in the 250 novice class, and an occasional Honda will win a heat, but a consistent Honda 450, a bike that repeatedly makes the main event with other brand competition, is that aforementioned rare article.

WITH a man like Phil Read earning almost $50,000 a year from his activities as a Yamaha factory rider, road racing could be said to be a highly commercialized venture. It is a business, too, for the non-works British riders who also make a living from it, albeit a precarious one.

CYCLECARS
The Marriage of Motorcycles and Cars... Just Didn’t Work Out
[no value]
[no value]
MICHAEL LAMM
CYCLECARS became a rampant fad in this country from about 1912 through 1916. They were extremely cheap, gave an illusion of speed because of their nearness to the ground, and must have been the same sort of fun to drive as go-karts. Cyclecars tried to bridge the gap between motorcycles and conventional automobiles, usually carrying the driver and one passenger either in tandem or alongside (called “sociable”).

I feel that I can no longer keep silent in the face of all of the “safety” legislation that we, as motorcyclists, are being subjected to. Isn’t it ironic that the very people we elect and support through our tax monies are trying their level best to do away with us?

NEW HONDA 350 CAM
$75
The Precision Machining high performance cam for the Honda CL-350 and CB-350 now is available. When installed in a completely stock 350, the new cam greatly increases its performance. In bikes tested with standard gearing, 11,500 rpm was easily reached in 5th gear. Power range begins at 7000 rpm, though performance below this is smooth, even at idle. For scrambling purposes, long TT type exhaust pipes bring the engine onto the cam at much lower rpm. The cam is a drop-in item with no piston cutting, and will operate up to 12,000 rpm with stock valve springs; it has been tested on a production road racer ridden on California tracks by Bill Lyons. The cam profile is as follows: Inlet valve opens 30 degrees btc, closes 70 degrees abc; exhaust valve opens at 70 bbc, closes 31 ate; both lift 0.310 in. Cams are hardfaced and sold on an exchange basis only (a core must accompany each order). A one-year warranty is issued with each cam. Price is $75 exchange. Additional information will be supplied by Precision Machining, Dept. CW-3, 1209 Montgomery Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066.

THE TRAIL-BREAKER
This unusual scooter has been around for several years and boasts fantastic climbing ability. Its secret is two-wheel chain drive and gobs of rubber.

The wheels are hollow, and may be filled with either water or gasoline. The Trail-Breaker is powered by a one-cylinder two-cycle Chrysler engine, mounted high for ground clearance.

The Yamaha Motor Co. of Japan recently entertained 38 American Yamaha dealers. The U.S. Yamaha International Corp.’s annual sales contest determined those selected to attend. Purposes of the convention were to tour the main plant, to test ride new models, including the GP 350 R3 and 250 DT 1, and to engage in engineering and sales discussions. Extensive social activities rounded out the 10-day trip.

FOR THE TRAILING BUFF
Two of the four brand-new 1969 Bridgestones for the U.S. market are directed to the fast growing off-road market. They are the 100-cc trail scrambler, designated the 100TMX, and the 200-cc street scrambler MIISS. The 100TMX (top photo) is the most dirt-oriented, with knobby tires, pack rack and raised front fender. Its 9-bhp (at 8000 rpm) engine, working through a four-speed gearbox, pushes it to a claimed 60 mph. Other features: all street legal equipment, skid plate, tubular frame, and oil injection. The MIISS also has a tubular frame, oil injection, plus the sporty looking high pipes and skid plate, but will spend more time on the pavement. It boasts a five-speed gearbox, 21-bhp (at 8000 rpm) engine, and claimed 80-mph top speed.
