UP FRONT
ON THE “EQUA-LEAN” DESIGN CONCEPT FOR SIDECARS
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
TYLING ASIDE, street sidecar design hasn’t progressed much over the years. The majority of chairs are still attached rigidly to a solo machine’s frame. This prevents the motorcycle from leaning in turns, necessitating some interesting compromises in riding style.

I have just read the October article about the Yamaha Women’s National by Virginia DeMoss. It is so well-written and informative that it was like being in the races again. To have the biggest and best magazine cover the event, linked with the quality of her article, will do more for women’s racing than anything to date.

ONE element in motorcycling we don’t really like to talk about very much is death. Professional motorcycle racing is dangerous, of course, as are most forms of racing. The American Motorcycle Association promotes a lot of racing each year .

MAICO’S PRIMARY involvement with the sport of motorcycling has centered around motocross for many years. . .and has proven quite impressive. But that singular focus has had a limiting effect on other areas of competition-such as enduros—which have seen little or no effort put into machine development for the U.S.

Tank Buyer's Accessory Guide...
Greater Gas Capacities For Non-stop Cookin'

Fernando Belair
The large-capacity accessory tank business has been booming for the past few years. The reasons are simple. Manufacturers do not supply machines with large fuel tanks because such tanks are not as attractive as the standard ones, they are more costly to produce than smaller tanks, and they are not required by the majority of new-machine purchasers.

TO SOME PEOPLE, the words progress and automation go hand in hand. If you can get a machine to do more of the work for you, then you can enjoy the pleasurable aspects of what you are doing more fully. While we’ll no doubt encounter readers whose opinions differ, we have to agree with this concept in so far as it applies to automatic transmissions on motorcycles.

B. R. Nicholls
The Golden Jubilee ISDT went through a quick game of musical countries for 1975 before seating itself on the Isle of Man. Less than 12 months before the trial, Austria reneged on its offer to hold the event, leaving the FIM out in the cold. After some searching, they turned to Manxland, changed the date from September to October, and the 50th International Six Days Trial became reality.

COMMUTER BIKES ARE very difficult to evaluate properly within the time frame of a normal road test. Sure, we can tell you how they handle, what kind of mileage they get, and whether or not they vibrate, but we can only speculate as to reliability and related maintenance costs.

Baja Racing 1975
NORRA is gone but who misses her?

JOE PARKHURST
THE BANNER over the checkpoint at Rancho Santa Ynez reads: “NORRA welcomes Baja 1000 racers.” Hung right over it is another reading, “SCORE welcomes Baja racers.” A sly joke on someone’s part. But the new power in Baja is Mickey Thompson’s SCORE, which inherited the magic and mystique of racing down the peninsula from San Fernando Valley florist Ed Perlman and NORRA. SCORE is a far more professional outfit that has put a good deal of organization and profitability into Baja racing.

Take a long, hard stare at yourself in the mirror. That’s it, reeeeally close. Turn to the left side. . .now the right. Seen that face before? Besides between your own ears, that is. Sad to say, there aren’t many originals, so chances are someone’s told you at one time or another that you look just like old so-and-so.

EVER WANTED to make a good thing better, but weren’t sure how to go about it? Or perhaps you didn’t think you had the money or the tools. Well, with the aid of this article, an outlay of around $125 for parts, and some very common tools, you can transform your Z1 from something good into something superior.

Spectators at the U.S. Round of the 1974 World Trials Championship at Saddleback Park will probably remember “The Grand Canyon.” Bob Nickelsen did, and after the trial went back to scope it out. Sections of this type are not uncommon in arid parts of the country, so Bob felt that the techniques needed to ride this section would be a valuable addition to his bag of tricks.

I have several questions to ask, all of them concerning my Honda CB750. I would like to know if it is possible to mount an “endless” chain as a replacement for the one I now have on the final drive. If so, could you please tell me how to do it and why all service manuals say the chain must be cut in order to be removed?
