The American Bicyclist and Motorcyclist magazine is a consolidation of several prior bicycle publications that were acquired and/or merged through the years. Ultimately, David Meyers purchased the publication and renamed it The American Bicyclist and Motorcyclist. David`s wife, Florence and son Stu were both active in the business. Each monthly issue is full of editorial and advertisements that chronicle the bicycle industry for the period. Howie & his family worked closely with Stuart Meyers for many years. Stu sold the publication in the 1990s and it is currently being published by The League of American Bicyclists, the format is quite different from when the Meyer`s family was publishing; it is now slanted toward advocacy & touring. The dimensions are 8 1/4 x 11 1/4 inches.
