The American bicyclist & Motorcyclist magazine is a direct descendant of the very first and a consolidation of at least eleven 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 May 1934 issue contains 52 pages. The front cover is an advert for Rollfast by D.P. Harris; Rollfast has owned the front cover for many years. 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.
