Comapre it to Harley in 57. Working feverisly, I suppose, on their side valve K race bikes. Dreaming I suppose of the day, only 30 years down the line, when the basic 1932 design would be superceded by the revolutionary Twin Cam.

Ok, that's totally unfair. The K bike was mostly for dirt track use and the rules of US racing were designed to discourage innovation.

But maybe that was part of the problem. After all, since Harley was US motorcycling, their desire to live in the dusty past meant that AMA racing was really just following them.
