  • Description

    WITH MANY REFINED FORMS OF TRANSPORT AVAILABLE THESE DAYS IT SEEMS THAT THE DAY OF THE TWO WHEELER MAY BE OVER... BUT NOT SO. IN FACT, WORLD DEMAND FOR TWO-WHEELED VEHICLES OF ANY SORT IS ON THE INCREASE AND TO SHOW WHAT 1965 HAS IN STORE, BRITISH AND FOREIGN MANUFACTURERS HAVE PUT THEIR LATEST WARES ON SHOW AT LONDON'S EARLS COURT EXHIBITION CENTRE.

    THERE'S KEEN COMPETITION ON WORLD MARKETS THESE DAYS BETWEEN CYCLES AND SCOOTER MANUFACTURERS AND TO KEEP PACE WITH THE BUYING PUBLIC THERE ARE MORE REFINEMENTS AND STYLING THAN EVEN BEFORE.

    MOST OF THE EXHIBITS ARE FROM BRITISH MANUFACTURERS, BUT MANY CONTINENTAL COUNTRIES AND JAPAN, BRITAIN'S BIGGEST RIVAL IN THE MOTOR CYCLE WORLD, ARE STRONGLY REPRESENTED.

    AMONG THE NEW FEATURES FOR BICYCLES ARE MACHINES THAT CAN BE ALTERED TO SIT THE HEIGHT OF THE RIDER; OTHERS THAT OFFER A COMBINATION OF CHEAP TRANSPORT AND READY HEALTH CURE AS THE GERMAN "DONKEY" BIKE DOES; AND THERE ARE BICYCLES MADE OF FIBRE-GLASS.

    THE HISTORY OF THE BICYCLE HASN'T BEEN FORGOTTEN AND THERE ARE SOME FINE RELICS ON SHOW AND SOME MOTORIZED TWO-WHEELERS THAT LOOK MORE LIKE SMALL CARS - THE MANUFACTURERS BID TO ELIMINATE THE WEATHER AS A HAZARD TO CYCLING.
