Hi Everyone,

Thanks for the Replies!

Included in the mountain of detritus bound for the bonfire was perhaps 200kgs of 1970s bike magazines including issue 2 of an Australian magazine called "THE BIKE BOOK". It featured the aforementioned photograph of Mick Andrews on the cover. Totally responsible for my ongoing enjoyment of trials today!

Alastair

Alastair, it seems you are on to my motivation as I had kept a Trail and Track magazine from my youth that had a 4 way comparison of Japanese 250s and I have looked and looked on multiple ocasions and I still don't know where it Is! All these years on and having owned, worked on and competed on all 4 models makes me even more curious! So hopefully we can build an electronic library with an existing forum search facility so we can find articles in the Future?

Knowing it is early stages yet, BUT, IF we judged THE BEST on magazine articles alone using most praised and least criticized, we have a clear winner in the HUMBLE Bultaco M49 :!:

Here is another magazine from my collection:

Thanks Greg, that TL125 test was well-reasoned and well-written.
I especially liked "Two things immediately impress about the motor. They are its lack of temperament, and its lack of power"

I deleted my original post as my comments about the 123 may not be helpful to the person trying to sell one in the classifieds.
