Last Call- Track Terrier Edition

Bill Peden
You don’t have to be fast to be competitive, you only have to be as fast as the competition. Here that competition is the under 125-CC class, and the racer is Bill Peden on his 50-cc (them’s moped specs) NSU racer back in 1965. I don’t care how slow it may be, it still looks like a ball to race.

    I did a quarter mile, once on a Yamaha TY50 (2 stroke).
    I'll never get back that 36 seconds.
    Maybe NSU had the right idea. No suspension = lighter.

    Anyone ever seen the strange Japanese sport called "Auto Race"? It's flat track asphalt racing on specially prepared motorcycles with some funky handlebars. The bikes are kept under lock and key until the start of the race.

    The Atomic Toasters have recovered from last year's critical excursion of the SPAM device, BTW.

    50cc race series do tend to draw some attention.

    Ooooh! Leading-link front suspension setup.
    Reminds me of my 1980 Honda C70 Passport.
    I rode the crap out of that machine… Really liked it.
