JOE PARKHURST
AN ORGAN CONCERT in a motorcycle shop made newspaper headlines in CYCLE WORLD's home town of Long Beach, Calif., during the 1969-70 holidays. Joe Koons' BSA shop is the home of a fine pipe organ that Joe constructed from components gathered from various places such as a dismantled theater in St. Louis, Mo., and an old club in Santa Monica, Calif.

I presently own a Honda SL350 and a Bultaco dirt bike. I read your article on the 350 and I really felt sad that you didn't give it a fair chance, by having an opinion of what it was to be before you even laid a hand on the throttle. I think you have the wrong idea about the machine as a whole.

Our club is a social group—there's no tax on us! Surprise, but don’t feel bad— you’re in good company. Most road riding groups and a surprising number of competition riders are startled to find that their little social club has tax responsibilities to both the state and federal governments.

ONE WAY to get your jollies is to take your bike out to a smooth field and kick a ball around. If a couple of friends join in and split into teams, you have a bastardized version of polo. But it’s cheaper to play. Motorcycles don’t need stables, or eat hay.

I’ve often wondered why so many bikes have chain drive, especially touring bikes. Doesn’t shaft drive have several advantages over chain drive? Perhaps you could compare the advantages of chain drive and shaft drive. Harry Griswold Santa Monica, Calif.

YAMAHA'S NEW BIG BORE will be likely to cause confusion to innocent bystanders. From a distance it resembles several other machines that follow the almost-classic 650-cc or 750-cc vertical Twin pattern. It may seem strange that Yamaha—breaking with tradition to build its first four-stroke machine—would follow a path already beaten.

TWO-STROKE DEVOTEES must attribute the success of the now-conventional piston port engines to a chap named Schnurle. Most modern two-strokes employ a single flat-top piston per cylinder, with ports arranged more or less on the Schnurle theme.

MONTESA'S CONCEPTION of a scrambler is of the Spanish school, i.e., it is not particularly specialized for any one branch of the dirt riding sport. You can call the Cappra a motocrosser, but it is not completely that. For, by rigging it slightly differently, it may also be made to perform competitively in the desert, at a TT scrambles, or even at a professional steeplechase event.

THE NAVAJO Indian man waved to passing traffic as he tried to hitch a ride. His hair was tied in a “chonga”—the old way, now that the young, schooled Indian men cut their hair in the manner of the belicano, the white man. But he too showed the affects of the white man in the worn white shirt and ragged brown trousers.

I RELISHED THE THOUGHT of testing this little bike— befitting a Saracen, it had a pugnacious look about it! But the main reason I was anxious to put this new machine through its paces, to be honest, was that I had little regard for anything less than a 200-cc trials model and I wanted to see what this 125 would do.

AT BROOKLANDS, the legendary paved speedway at Weybridge, England, which opened in 1907 and folded when Hitler handed around the band parts in '39, a solitary racing motorcycle rusts in an unmarked grave. In April of 1912, a young Englishman, A.J. Moorhouse, lost control of his bike on the Railway Straight, dove off the circuit and smacked a telegraph pole with such force that his goggle frames left imprints in the wood.

TRIALERS do not lend themselves well to styling. Function dictates form and the applications of the trialer demand certain physical attributes hardly conducive to good looks. Ground clearance is necessarily high, at least 9 or 10 in., handlebar contour is flattish and rather straight and high, and the seat disproportionately small.

ONE OF THE LATEST rages in Europe is the introduction and frequent success of under 125-cc machines for observed trials. Once dominated by 350 and 500 English Singles, trials shifted to 250-cc two-stroke Singles in the past ten years, as British four-stroke makers appeared to lose interest in this very exciting form of motorcycle competition.

HONDA HAS YET to misjudge the motorcycle market. Whenever they tap it, they score. Each time they bring out a new model you know it'll be a hit, as surely as one Burma shave sign follows another. But although near supernatural clairvoyance is evident, it’s not the only reason for Honda's success.

NEW DOT TRIALER
As long as there’s an England there will always be the Dot. These bikes were first manufactured in 1903 and have been going strong ever since. Dot’s latest enterprise is the Dot-Minarelli trialer. A lightweight Italian two-stroke engine displacing 170 cc has been mated to an extremely strong but light cradle frame. The 13-bhp Minarelli powerplant incorporates such features as a heat-insulated 25-mm Dellorto carburetor, aluminum alloy cylinder and head, four-speed gearbox and a helically geared primary drive. The frame uses steel forgings in its steering head construction which won’t distort or deform under stress. Also the steering head is reinforced by the frame’s triangulated configuration which ensures precision handling under the roughest use. The 178-lb. machine boasts an array of alternative fork springs to support different weights of riders and varying terrain conditions. Gearing is changeable through the quickly removable chain sprockets of 13, 15 or 17 teeth, while the buyer is also offered a choice of low, medium or high lift handlebars. Wheelbase measures out to 52.3 in. and ground clearance is 12 in. Write to the Dot Cycle & Motor Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Dept. CW-3, Ellesmere St., Manchester 15, England.

This new manifold is thoroughly machined to assure proper float angle and carburetor clearance on all models. It also has cast-in cooling fins to aid heat dissipation, thus a denser fuel charge. The Webco manifold adaptor, part No. 1293, retails for $9.95 and is available at all Webco Inc. parts and accessoiy dealers.

I remember well the fall of 1957 when the Gilera, Moto Guzzi and Mondial factories jointly announced their withdrawal from grand prix racing. It was one of the strongest blows ever dealt motor racing. However, in the early ’60s, both Mondial and Gilera returned for another brief dabble in racing.

Talk of a Moto Guzzi comeback to racing sets hearts pounding a little faster—especially for those who were lucky enough to be around the race circuits 13 years ago when that Italian concern was deeply involved in grand prix racing. Also actively involved at the time were Mondial and Gilera and, of course, MV Agusta who still rules the roost in the larger capacity solo classes.

Is Suzuki about to come out with a big-bore machine? No one is really sure, although there have been numerous reports here of a big machine for the American market—and you can be certain that the Hamamatsu company would want to match the entries of Honda, Yamaha and Kawasaki in the big-displacement, high-performance field for quite a few reasons.
