The Art of the Motorcycle
This stunning book celebrates the motorcycle as one of the most compelling design achievements of the 20th century. Now affordably priced, this "classic vehicle" (MSNBC), with its gorgeous full-page and double-page photographs, is a must for motorcycle and design enthusiasts. Originally published to accompany the enormously popular Guggenheim Museum exhibition, the book includes entries on over 100 spectacular bikes (BMW, Ducatl, Harley-Davidson, Indian, Triumph) as well as essays on the motorcycle in film, fashion, lifestyle, and history by such life-long rebels as Hunter S. Thompson and Dennis Hopper. Among the gems selected on both technical and aesthetic grounds are the 1894 Hildebrand & Wolfmuller 1500cc; the pivotal BMW R32; the immensely popular 1950s Honda 50 Super Cub; the quintessentially American 1977 Harley-Davidson XLCR; and the Ducati 916, one of the most beautiful motorcycles ever produced. New to the paperback edition is a 16-page illustrated section featuring the magnificent motorcycles that were added to the exhibition when it traveled to the Guggenheim Las Vegas.
