Following the success of the series previously launched with 100 Planes 100 Years, "100 Motorcycles 100 Years" presents the history of the motorcycle with eye-catching images and absorbing stories that set it apart from other merely factual motorcycle books. Compelling photographs of the motorcycle, or "bike" as enthusiasts call them, show the evolution of motorcycling from its dawn to the present day. Unique graphic spreads take the reader through time and travel by highlighting a single key motorcycle for each year in the past century, accompanied by engaging anecdotes about its original design, its intrepid riders, and its final fate. Highly readable and visually exciting, this book is an excellent resource for motorcycle fans and transportation buffs alike.
