scram6Dn' arounil* By Maureen Lee To a die-hard four-stroke fan like me there was nothing lovelier than to hear the BSA works team bikes running at Saddleback. In this era of the shrieking two-strokes to hear those Beezers thundering up the hills just brought shivers. Even if r have a two-stroke for my own bike I still like the good old thunderers. May they thump forever. Some other observations on the Trans-AMA, it's obvious that these guys are trying harder than some of the perfonnances we've seen on the Inter-Am circuit, especially those of the past years. Two fine firms are really' trying to show the American public what their new models- can do in an . attempt to overcome the domination of the Japanese market, and that of Husqvarna. To make that a little clearer, as soon as it was announced that Suzuki would come out with a motocross machine a lot of Americans smiled and said, "Ab, there go the Europeans" meaning the bikes would be so good they'd blow everyone in the proverbial weeds. Well, if you've seen the Suzukis of Pettersson and Robert, that's predsely what they do•••blow 'em in the weeds. They are fantastic. But, what will the production modds be like? Right now I can hear some of you saying, well, the BSA's are works bikes and will the production models be like them? Probably not, but the point we're trying to get across is that too many people will not even consider the purchase of a British racing machine because now there are going to be japanese motocross machines. So, if a new bike is in your Christmas plans, shop carefully. There are the well-proven, tried and true machines you can't go wronR with but also check 1970 125cc BULTACO SHERPA. Super clean, excellent condition, like new, fast. $675.00. (7141 746~6. SACHS/HODAKA '69/SACHS.

Don't miss a good check-out because at one time one company built such a miserable "replica" of their works machine it left a bad taste in everyone's mouth, and whatever you do, don't underestimate AjS (and no I don't have an uncle who is chairman of the board or something). We give our tip of the helmet to this company which is building itself up again with all new people and awfully good equipment if you wander wander through the pits and look at these A-jays that have been campaigned they still look good And also, of course, don't underestimate the japanese bikes. Give yourself a break and check 'em all out. We got a bit sidetracked from the rest of the observations on the Trans-AMA, so back to _Saddleback. It was pretty unbeli evable to watch those heavyweights line up in the 250 support class, pretty obvious that their tech. inspector didn't know what he was inspecting, ugh fellers, there is a difference you know, and you KNEW! Lack of communication seems to be the real hangup on races like this. True, motocross is a new word to the AMA but there are a lot of people around who would willingly hdp them learn the game. r can't see why the AMA couldn't have used the services of people like Stu Peters and Kelvin Franks of CMC, or say, members of the ACA who have continually put on motocross events and professional ones too. We all hate to admit when we're a bit lost and feel like a clod when we have to ask for help, but when it's in the best interest of the sport, 1'11 go along with the clod bit. Well, for Carlsbad we've noted that the AMA will accept FIM licenses at Carlsbad, that's a step in the right direction gentlemen. Maybe I will send Tom Clark his bouquet of roses after all. p!a,e( dual f!ltrons, custom seat, Bar;um .rear tire, see to appreciate. (213) 761·1514.

BRONSON HELPS KIDS Whether school bells ring for the rest of the year at St. Thomas Aquinas in Ojai will depend on Bronson, and his $5000 Harley-Davidson Sportster. The souped·up cycle is the grand award in a legitimate lottery set for Thanksgiving Day in the school courtyard. From across the nation, Americans have written, "Keep the school open, here's my dollar, I sure would like to own that motorcycle'" Television's Bronson (Michael Parks), knows well the story of spiraling education costs facing the little parish school; his two small dau~ters attend the school. Before anyone could ask his aid, the soft-spoken cycle rider wheeled up to the school, dismounted from the gleaming bike, said, "here it is if it will help" and departed on foot. Letters must include a stamped, self-addressed envelope; "Everyone, whether they send a donation or not, a dollar is the average gift, will hear from us personally and will be remembered in the children's prayers," said Father Richard Smith.
