Which bike, which issue?

I have just finished restoring this 1972 Penton Berkshire 100, a bike that I always wanted when I was 18. I built it under the supervision of Don Burgess, one of the original Penton dealers, who was my mentor as a rider and mechanic beginning in 1973. It was a labor of love. Don passed away two years ago this spring, but I'll always have the bike.
