The Motorbike Book : The Definitive Visual History Hardback

Hardback

Description

Set your pulse racing with this stunning visual guide to over 1000 pin-up machines - iconic symbols of wanderlust, speed, and the open road. From Gottlieb Daimler's gas-powered "engine on a bicycle" which set fire to the seat on its first outing, to superbikes such as the Ducati 916, The Motorbike Book takes you on an enthralling tour of the bike's history. It shows you bikes that appeal to the head - practical forms of transport - and to the heart - a parade of classic pin-ups including cult machines such as the Honda RC30, the Triumph Bonneville and the Harley-Davidson XR750. The Motorbike Book shows the brilliance and impracticality of different designs and features detailed cross-sections of engines such as the air-cooled two-stroke.

It explains how the great marques such as the Royal Enfield, the "legendary" Indian Scout, Vespa, and Norton all became household names. Whether you are a hardcore enthusiast, or looking forward to your first machine, this is one title you cannot be without.
