RACING HONDA CL72 CL77 SCRAMBLERS BACK IN THE 60s

The Honda CL72 (250) Scrambler, introduced in 1962, launched a new category of dual-purpose motorcycle. It had a sturdy cradle frame, increased ground clearance, upswept Exhaust, and larger wheels. The first real test for the Scrambler came in March 1962 when Dave Ekins, a pioneering off-road racer and Bill Robertson, a Honda dealer, set the 1000 mile Tijuana-to-La Paz, Mexico record riding Honda CL72 Scramblers. It wasn't long before Scramblers were being modified for racing. Aftermarket race parts were soon available. While maybe not the fastest of race bikes, the Honda Scrambler did make its mark, all while being one of the best looking and sounding bikes on the track.

Vintage Flat Track Motorbike racing & "Wall of Death" 2/2 - July 2010
CanadaMotorSports - A little something different, old style 1/4 mile flat track motorbike racing on dirt. Grass roots racing in truest form, no flashy advertising, just a great bunch of people having fun riding vintage bikes, many dating back to the 1930s. The Whizzer class is remarkable not so much for speed but for the sheer uniqueness of the bikes. The climax is the wall of death, an old style stunt, you gotta see to believe it! Thank you to all the folks at the track. Held at the O'Keefe ranch just outside of Vernon, BC.
