The conversion kit is explained in detail inside the magazine.One of these memorably won the 1970 Daytona 200 event which provided a massive springboard for the sale of the road going versions in the U. I bought this magazine (new in 1970) for 20p and it remains one of my most well read magazines. The top one is of a motorcycle which I do not recognise, if it’s Japanese I have never seen one before and the bottom one looks to be a very early road going Yamaha probably a 250.Front and rear cover line drawings of a very little known Japanese manufacturer called Rikuo who produced a motorcycle made under license from Harley Davidson which predictably looked identical to the 750 side valve models.Double page centre spread on what looks like the Bristol Show (no text information, just pictures} but with 1 page report on the next page.
