Great stuff! You could just see the rideability of the Pentons vs. the Elsie and the TM in that video. The boys on the Jap bikes were lookin' like they were being drug around the track on the back of the bike while the Pentons just looked smooth as silk. 'Course it could be the riders too.

Awesome! Shadow Glen and International! I never raced there, but I used to go all the time and ride the tracks when they wern't being used, also used to go to the Speedway races there, and myself and a freind were extras in an episode of "The Fallguy" that was shot there. The set for Baa Baa BlackSheep was there also, and the Corsairs were parked there from time to time. Ahh, memories....

For you younger folks our modern left side shift with 1 down and N up wasn't always so. Some bikes shifted on the left, some on the right. Same with kick starters. Bultaco until 1975 shifted on the right and had the kick starter on the left. Some bikes kicked the lever forward, some backward. One bike (anybody?) had a shifter that rotated around to be a kickstart lever.

Some real oldies (Indian?) had a hand shift, foot clutch, the throttle on the left grip with backwards rotation and then the spark advance on the right grip.

I seem to recall that flat track bikes still shift on the right. Maybe MotoGP bikes too. Working from memory here so feel free to correct me and elaborate!

Oh no. Much worse. It had what they called a rotory shift Pattern. It went like this ( all down, N-1-2-3-4 and back to N-1-2-3-4 ) If you forgot what gear you were in you could find yourself back in 1st at 55MPH. Did it myself many times.Yikes!!!
