The Complete Encyclopedia of Classic Motorcycles
This book contains the histories of 100 notable motorcycle manufacturers, recounting in colorful detail their dramatic ascents and declines or, in the luckiest cases, their continued and dazzling successes. Author Mirco De Cet notes the most famous designers, machines, racers and companies. The book includes 750 color photographs, many of which have never been seen before since many of the machines featured have been discontinued and now exist solely in private collections or museums around the world. With the aid of the companies and private individuals, Mirco De Cet has unearthed as many classic machines as he could and brushed off the dust to reveal them to you in their full glory.
