Here is one of the best Scrambler pictures
I've seen! There's: action, drama, focus, juxtaposition... You'd
think the background could be an add-on, but it's real.
Jim Barr, pictured here taking an impossible turn on the
grounds of Maybrook, N.Y., reports:
"Here is how it was done in 1963: AMA sanctioned
Scrambles Races were alternately scheduled every summer
Sunday, rain or shine, at Maybrook N.Y., Fishkill N.Y.,
Millerton N.Y. and several other local scrambles tracks. An
AMA license and $5 was all it cost to race. No experience
necessary for amateurs!
I scrambled a '61 CL77 in 1963. The only mod was a 50 tooth
rear sprocket which was perfect for the short scrambles
tracks. I raced in the 500 class and the Honda was more than
a match for the Gold Stars I competed with, although as a
new amateur the best I ever did was a 2nd place."
Nothing "2nd place" about it.
