Word Power: Motorcycle

Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary.  Thomas Allen, Ltd., Toronto, 1960.
Remarkable that this picture was being used in a dictionary as late as 1960 to illustrate a motorcycle.  Tiller steering?  Girder forks?  Apparently no speedometer.  The original copyright was 1934, and evidently the picture was not updated.
