Just for fun, I dusted off the April 1962 issue of Cycle World and also my first CW issue, the second one that they published in February 1962. In the April issue, CW published a test of my first full-sized motorcycle, a Yamaha YD3.  Mine looked just like the one tested, except that the one that I bought new from the Al Fergoda Norton/Yamaha/Lambretta dealership in San Francisco, came stock with cream-colored plastic leg-shields.  :o Photos attached.
