Product description

This wonderful 76-page, Hardback book, written by Mick Duckworth, is essential for all motorcycle enthusiasts, detailing more than 60 of the defining racing machines.

All the models featured in Classic Racing Motorcycles are specially photographed in colour, with comprehensive technical specifications and informative background text.

The bikes are arranged in chronological order to show how the technology developed, decade by decade, and detail shots show key points of each model.

Racing has always been at the forefront of motorbike technology and Classic Racing Motorcycles profiles the all-time best of the breed. It features the bikes that were Grand Prix championship winners and major contenders across more than six decades of racing from the 1930s to the 1980s.

Among the new technology which these machines pioneered are: overhead and double-overhead camshafts, telescopic forks, swingarm and monoshock rear suspension, two-stroke disc-valves, four-valve cylinder heads, liquid cooling, four and even six-cylinder engines and aerodynamic fairings.

The 60 plus bikes featured in Classic Racing Motorcycles include examples from all the major Japanese and European manufacturers. Among the models chosen are many which are part of important collections, including rare machines from the former Eastern Bloc.
