Car & Classic

Classic Dirt Bike

Kool Transition Model • In the frantic world of competition, motorcycles are constantly developed which means occasionally bikes of one year include bits from the previous year as they transition from model to model.

THE PENTON CONNECTION

A MEMORY JOGGED

MOTOEURO GARAGE

Far from home • Often a motorcycle will have a convoluted journey from point of origin to eventual home… US reader Alan Singer has just such a tale.

SAMMY MILLER LTD

THE STORY

From the archive • Sometimes a chance comment changes the direction of a feature ever so slightly… in this case, by spanning a few more decades.

WHAT ELSE HAPPENED IN… 1952

WHAT ELSE HAPPENED IN…1962

WHAT ELSE HAPPENED IN…1972

WHAT ELSE HAPPENED IN… 1982

Against the odds • Sometimes sheer determination will bring success from the most unlikely of beginnings.

NOT-SO-SECRET TRICK

AN EXPERIMENT

THE RIDER’S INPUT

A bit of a puzzle • For some reason both major restorations in the workshop are the source of bewildering puzzlement as they refuse to play nice.

CLASSIC FUEL SOLUTIONS

Fuel for thought • A topic of much discussion in the classic world is the modern equivalent of petrol…

THE SAFETY THING

YES AND NO...

DIRTPRODUCTS • This is where the world of dirt bike suppliers tell us about what they’ve got going on which will make your bike a bit better, your appearance a bit sharper and your track cred… well, two out of three ain’t bad to quote the legend who was Meatloaf. Want to be in here? Contact editor Tim Britton cdbeditor@mortons.co.uk or advertising exec Leon Currie lcurrie@mortons.co.uk 01507 529465

Success brings sales • The UK industry old guard collapsed in the Sixties and smaller, specialist makers enjoyed a brief period of success – at least in the off-road world.

BUILDING FROM BITS

Suits you, sir • When trials went modern in the Seventies, along came bright-coloured clothing – then in the Eighties along came Ellgren.

WHO IS JOHN DICKINSON?

Haring about • NE Vinduro Club’s popular September enduro weekend near Wooler has two elements – a time card enduro and a Hare and Hounds. We were there for the Hare and Hounds.

Hudson at Hawkstone • To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Neil Hudson’s 250 world championship win in 1981, he was guest at Hawkstone Legends.

Rear end development • When needs must, development happens… rapidly.

Scrambling back • CDB’s classic MX series managed to happen in 2021; Andy Withers was there.
