AN OLD MOTORCYCLE JOKE: Why do the British drink warm beer? Because their refrigerators are made by Lucas. If you aren’t familiar with the legacy of British motorcycles or automobiles, that joke could be meaningless. You probably wouldn’t know that the Lucas electrics once used on most British motor vehicles were shamefully unreliable, so much so that the company’s founder, Joseph Lucas, was often sarcastically referred to as “The Prince of Darkness.” As one motorcycle-industry executive, himself a Brit by birth, once quipped in the late Sixties: “Lucas should give a free bunch of carrots to everyone who buys one of its headlight bulbs.” Since it was almost guaranteed, he reasoned, that either the headlight would burn out prematurely or the electrical system would fail altogether, the improved night vision provided by the Vitamin A in the carrots would help the rider find his way home in the dark.

HAVING FORGOTTEN TO CLICK ON THE Norton’s push-push kill button, I kicked the starter lever fruitlessly, and finally flooded it. I knew, of course, that the Boyer ignition my teammate Dick Tietjen and I had installed on the Commando engine in January of '72 was still so good that whenever the Production Racer didn’t fire on the first or second kick, something was seriously awry.

IT WAS THE DAY I PICKED UP MY brand-new 1975 Norton 850 Commando from the dealership in Madison, Wisconsin. I was filling out the final paperwork, adding sales tax to the whomping $1800 purchase price, and getting ready to take the bike home on its maiden ride.

Suzuki
$270
Domino’s Pizza might promise quick delivery, but they’ve got nothing on Pizza John Mafaro, who until just recently owned the NHRA Pro Stock elapsed-time record of 7.982 seconds in the quarter-mile. And the same cams he used can be yours, from Web-Cam. They deliver .430-in. of lift and 248 degrees of duration, and they’re suitable for ProStock-tuned Suzuki engines of 1260cc-1325cc; the firm says they’re too aggressive for street use. They retail for $270 a pair from Web-Cam Inc., 12387 Doherty St., River-side, CA 92503; (714) 735-2200.
Web-Cam Inc.
Enduro 3 Sahara tire
$100
If T.E. Lawrence had had a set of these dual-purpose tires from Metzeler, perhaps he could have ridden his beloved Brough as he led the Arabs into Damascus in 1918. Metzeler claims the Saharas provide excellent performance both on- and off-road, and they’re available in one front and three rear sizes, with prices ranging from $100 to $ 118. To find out more, contact Metzeler Motorcycle Tire, 4520 107th St. S.W., Everett, WA 98204.
Web-Cam Inc.
Bell Star 5 helmet
$ 129.95
When Bell talks about a Star with European lines, it doesn’t mean Marlene Dietrich. Instead, the firm is referring to its Euro-styled Star 5 helmet, with injection-molded shell, six-port vent system and black terrycloth interior. The new Star comes in S-XL, in black, red, white-red-and-black and white-blue-and light-blue. Suggested price is $ 129.95 for solid colors and $ 139.95 for multi-colors. You can find out more from Bell Sports Inc., P.O. Box 927, Rantoul, IL 61866; (217) 893-9300.
Web-Cam Inc.
Kleer-Flo Powermaster
$ 14,895
Sometimes, not even the latest spray-on wash-day wonders seem to get a bike clean enough. If that’s the case, maybe you need one of Kleer-Flo’s Powermaster parts washers. The largest has a 2000-pound capacity, and internal dimensions of 75 by 48½ by 46 inches; suggested retail price is $ 14,895. Of course, if the Powermaster outweighs your needs, the firm has other, smaller washers, and you can get more information from the Kleer-Flo Co., 15151 Technology Drive, Eden Prairie, MN 55344; 1-800-328-7942.
Web-Cam Inc.
Dale Walker's Power Shift
$ 179.95
Drag racers are wired differently from most people, and so are their shifters. The one Dale Walker sells, for instance, momentarily cuts out the engine’s ignition coils when the shift lever is pulled, allowing full power gearchanges without the clutch. Walker’s arrangement also includes a rev-limiter, and is available for most Japanese bikes’ engines for $ 179.95 plus shipping. To get more information, wire Holeshot Performance products, 311 Chestnut St., Santa Cruz, CA 95060; (408) 427-3625.
Web-Cam Inc.
Classic Status Stamp
$7
Stamp out classic bikes every-where, with Classic Status’ rubber stamps. Each gives a nicely detailed print measuring approximately 1¾ in. by 1 inch; just right for postcards and letterheads—or foreheads of anyone impertinent enough to question your taste. CS offers seven stamps, from a BSA Spitfire Mk II to an H-D Sportster to a Kawasaki Mach III, and each one costs $7. To lay the rubber of your choice, write to Classic Status Stamp Co., 205 Stover, Charlevoix, MI 49702.
Web-Cam Inc.
JT Pro Tour Shadow jersey
$ 10.95
Lamont Cranston—a.k.a. the Shadow—had the power to cloud men’s minds. JT’s Pro Tour Shadow jersey, on the other hand, could give you the power to cloud men’s eyesight, by making them think they’re seeing double. The four-color graphic is available on the firm’s Pro Tour, Vented and Supercross jerseys, and on T-shirts, in adult sizes S-XL (some children’s sizes are available, too), with prices ranging from $ 10.95 to $37.95. To get yours, see your local dealer, or contact JT Racing, 515 Otay Valley Road, Chula Vista, CA 92011.
Web-Cam Inc.
Thread Repair Kits
$ 112.54
Fleet Street tailors can't help you when your bike needs some new threads; but the Thread Kits Co. can, with its Mechanics Master Thread Repair Kits. The metric kit includes taps, installation tools and 30 Perma-Thread inserts, in 5mm x 0.8, 6mm x 1.0, 8mm x 1.25, 10mm x 1.25 and 10mm x 1.5, for $ 112.54; kits for American thread sizes also are available. To sew up the deal, contact the Thread Kits Co., 2530 W. 237th St., Torrance, CA 90505; (213) 775-3048.
Web-Cam Inc.
Eurostyle case guards
The yard-wide crash bars popular in the ’60s and ’70s might meet the letter of certain roadrace sanctioning bodies’ rules, but they’d probably inhibit both your lean angle and passing technique. Instead, you might fit a pair of case guards from DPL Eurostyle. The dural guards come complete with mounting bolts for CBR600s, GSX-R750s/1100s, FZ750s, FZR750s/1000s and FJ 1100s for $69.95 a pair. To find out more, contact DPL Eurostyle Inc., 4237 S. Market Court, #B. Sacramento, CA 95834; (916) 9235829.
Web-Cam Inc.
Moose Power Valve Tuning kit
$29.95
You can tune an oud, a saz, a bouzouki—and now the powerband to your 1986-’89 Honda CR250. Moose Racing offers a selection of springs that replace the stock unit in the Honda’s HPP governor. The Moose springs allow the exhaust-control gate to operate earlier or later than the stock 7000-rpm setting, so you can pick the power characteristics that best suit the track or your riding style. They’re available for $29.95 from Moose Racing, 6235 S. Santa Fe, Littleton, CO 80120; (303) 794-6367.
Web-Cam Inc.
Spectro Heavy Duty oil
$2.45
It’s a commonly held belief that oil is nothing more than dead dinosaurs, and Spectro probably wouldn’t mind if you believed that its heavy-duty oil came from the biggest, baddest of the bunch. Available in 1-quart plastic bottles in 20W/50, 50, 60 and 70 grades, the mineral-based oil retails for $2.45. To find out more, contact Spectro Oils of America, P.O. Box 208, Brookfield, CT 06804; (203) 7751291.
Web-Cam Inc.
Suzuki service stand
$59.95
Once you’ve ground the sidestand to a nubbin on your GSX-R750, you’re going to need some way to prop the bike up. One way is with the service stand available from Suzuki. The stand features rollers for easy hoisting, and a padded surface where it contacts the swingarm, to help prevent slippage. It also works on both the 600 and 1100 Katana models, and on the GSX-R1100. Suggested price is $59.95, from your Suzuki dealer.

IN MILLIONS OF HOMES ON MILLIONS OF TV SETS, BRUCE Penhall was on the screen, kneeling and looking at some indistinct motorcycle tracks in the sand. “Are they racing tires, Bruce?” his CHiP partner asked. Penhall looked up, and with a straight face replied, “They don’t come any faster.” As soon as that absurd reply was uttered, thousands of motorcyclists in thousands of homes either turned off their TV sets (perhaps with a shoe thrown at the screen from across the room) or walked away, shaking their heads and leaving their 10-year-old sons or daughters to watch the program in peace.

The Cagiva takeover of Moto Morini last year not only assured the future of the Morini name, it also released vital funds for new-model development. The first fruit of that money is the Morini Dart, created by the marriage of two elements of the Cagiva empire.

To FOLLOW THE MISsissippi River is to travel America’s past. That alone is reason enough to ride along either side of the river; but because most of the back roads that follow the course of the Mississippi snake and meander just as circuitously as the river itself, the route is perfect for motorcyclists.

EXACTLY 20 YEARS AGO, THE FIRST HONDA 750 FOUR sat on Cycle World's cover, all four exhaust pipes gleaming, that great, wide engine in all its finned aluminum glory perched ready to howl. And howl it would, like only a Four could, with a shriek that sounded like silk ripping, a shriek that a Ferrari V-12 might make.
