1972 Vintage Honda Motorcycle Helmets – Inside and Out

Filed under: Honda, Parts & Accessories — Tags: , , — dadsvintageads @ 2:38 pm

Inside the Hondaline Helmet – You measure a man by what he is on the inside. It’s the same with helmets. So we’ve cut open the Hondaline helmet to let you take a look. First the shell – just a quick glance at our cut-away drawing of the Hondaline helmet tells you one thing about the fiberglass shell – it’s thick. Up to seven separate layers of strong fiberglass cloth welded together with polyester isopholic resin…

Outside the Hondaline Helmet – The design of Hondaline helmets blends the best protection with the best looks. The rugged fiberglass outer shell is painted in rich metallic colors – gold, blue, red and white. (The Hawk only comes in white.) The lines of each helmet are clean and handsome. And to go on the helmets, Hondaline makes the finest quality visors, face shields and tearoffs. It all proves Hondaline helmets are better helmets…inside and out.

1972 Triumph Tiger 650 TR6R – Son of Bonneville

Filed under: Triumph — Tags: , — dadsvintageads @ 1:50 pm

Like father, like Tiger. When it comes to power and performance, Triumph’s Tiger 650 is a chip off the old champion. Tiger’s 4-stroke OHV twin is a direct descendant of Bonneville’s classic power plant – the same basic engine that began winning races for Triumph some quarter of a million bikes ago. The same engine that helped power Gene Romero to his ’71 AMA Championship…

1972 BMW – Who needs chains?

Filed under: BMW — Tags: , — dadsvintageads @ 1:39 pm

You don’t. Drive chains mean trouble. They need constant maintenance and adjustment, and what’s a whole lot worse, they can break. Which is why all BMW’s have shaft-drive. It’s the most efficient and reliable way there is to deliver power to the rear wheel. Chains are simply not good enough for a BMW. Our shaft is one-piece drop-forged steel, and there’s nothing stronger. It turns in a completely sealed oil bath, silent, dependable and clean. No fuss, no bother, and no breaks…

1972 Norton Commando 750 – Rideability

Filed under: Norton — Tags: — dadsvintageads @ 1:20 pm

…What do we really mean by Commando rideability? Ask a skilled Norton rider and he will speak of electrifying acceleration, big power right from the start, a turbine smooth ride and ultra powerful disc braking. All great features, but not unique among superbikes. It is the rest of what he says that gives the Commando that certain charisma and puts it in a class apart.

That slim feel between the legs, that low weight, that racebred steering and road-holding possessed only by the Norton. In short, rideability gives him the confidence to experience his skills to their full potential. No real rider should accept less.

Filed under: JAWA — Tags: — dadsvintageads @ 12:49 pm

Attend a world motocross championship, or a Grand Prix, or the International Six Day Trials, or a Speedway race and you’ll see some magnificent $15,000 bikes. But you’ll also see (if history repeats itself) a pair of stockers run off with the trophies. Jawa and CZ. Since 1947, these two have won more world championships than any bikes made. And without so much as porting an engine…

1972 Rickman-Metisse 250 Motocross – only one mistake

Filed under: Rickman — Tags: , , — dadsvintageads @ 12:24 pm

The only mistake the Rickman Brothers made on their 250 motocross, was making it too good.

In 1965, Don and Derek Rickman built their first Rickman-Metisse 250. It was a great competition bike, but it wasn’t perfect. so the Brothers went back to the drawing board – and starting with this frame, they redesigned it. They came up with one of the lightest, and one of the fastest motocross 250’s in the world. Then they had ony one problem. By putting so much personal attention into making the bikes, they made too few of them for the people who want them.

Derek and Don Rickman hate to turn customers away, but they also want to make the perfect bike. And if creating the perfect 250 for America means making only limited quantities, that’s the way it has to be.

A perfect bike must start with a perfect frame. Derek and Don have won enough motocross championships to know that. Their racing frame is so unique, they had to build a separate factory to produce it.

The uniqueness of the Rickman-Metisse frame lies in its unmatched strength, balance, and superb handling. The Rickman-Metisse 250 frame is a specially designed lightweight, single downtube frame made of Reynolds 531. The tubing is of high strength steel alloy – so strong, they make jet planes with it. Bronze-welding makes the profile-matched joints practically indestructible.

After considerable testing, the Rickmans found the Montesa 250 to be the perfect engine for their frame. The Montesa can drag with engines twice its cc’s, because Don and Derek asked Montesa to specially port and chamber their engine for torque – so you could blast up any grade without bogging down. And because your power / weight ratio is much higher, you move a lot faster.

The Rickman Brothers have selected The Birmingham Small Arms Company, Inc. as their exclusive distributor in the U.S.A. Through this nationwide dealer chain, Don and Derek are making sure that you’ll always be near Rickman-Metisse parts and servicing.

The Rickman-Metisse 250 is the closest to being perfect that it has ever been. The one mistake Don and Derek made was not making enough of them.
