The American Motorcyclist and Bicyclist magazine is a direct descendant of the very first and a consolidation of at least nine of the cycle publications that reflected the bicycle`s first century in America. The first was the AMERICAN BICYCLING JOURNAL founded December 1877. The second was THE BICYCLING WORLD, founded in November 1879. In May of 1934 the title became AMERICAN BICYCLIST and Motorcyclist. This April 1928 issue contains 64 pages. The front cover is a photo, a view in Rainier National Park in the state of WA. I have taken the time to scan and list many of the pages of this important issue; see the picture gallery and click on any of the thumbnail images to see a greatly enlarged image. The dimensions are 9 x 12 inches. Courtesy of the Scott McCaskey collection.
