Days of Yore




Back in the days of Yore, when the earth was young and Dinosaurs ruled, we tried lots of different things to make our motorcycles run better. Those things are now 30 to 60 years old, possibly more. To some of you, that is a lifetime ago. Maybe, even before you were born. To me, it is like yesterday.

On this page I am going to reprint some old ideas whose time has come and passed. Kind of like me. I hope you find this stuff as interesting as I did.
