1954 Motor CYCLE magazine and the Boxer engine

I came across this article and I had to share it.
The publication dates back to January of 1954 and was written by George Glaser.
It is a great historical piece that talks about the BMW and Zundapp and the wonderful design of their motorcycles and scooters.
I think those Germans were onto something…
The DKW bikes look very elegant.
There is mention of the BMW R25/3.
The Victoria Bergmeister, the Bucker Twin (it reminds me of a BSA), and a french Terrot are photographed.
And check out the Motobecane scooter and how it resembles a Lambretta.
