More About the Author

Ian Falloon was born in New Zealand in 1952 and studied engineering and music at Victoria University, Wellington. After a career as a symphony orchestra oboist was brought to an end by a motorcycle accident he began writing articles on motorcycles for magazines. His first book, the Ducati Story, was published in 1996 and in now in five editions and has been published in three languages. The success of the Ducati Story led to a series of Ducati books and histories of Honda, Kawasaki, BMW, and Moto Guzzi motorcycles. He has now written 30 books on motorcycles, mostly historical but also restoration guides. With an interest and passion spanning forty years he now concentrates on collecting and restoring older Italian motorcycles, particularly Ducati, MV Agusta, Laverda, and Moto Guzzi. Ian Falloon lives in Australia, and is ably supported in his projects by his wife Miriam and sons Ben and Tim.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Quality Book 6 Jan 2007
By Mazza - Published on Amazon.com
Great information, very detailed, superb photos.

Highly recommended to owners of such Ducatis or fans of classic bikes in general.
5.0 out of 5 stars You might just be a Ducati freak if... 1 April 2011
By Motor_Memories - Published on Amazon.com
If you own a Ducati or plan to buy one, this book is indispensible and will more than pay for itself.

If you're a current Ducati owner, use this book to properly restore your bike and then to verify it's originality to the buyer to get top dollar.

If looking for one to buy, you'll need this book to verify originality and avoid getting 'taken' on a poorly restored bike.

If you buy this book without owning a Ducati or planning to buy one, you'll still love the 128 pages of incredible color images and close-ups of the engineering that went into these world-class bikes.

4.0 out of 5 stars In Depth Study of the Cafe Racer 7 Mar 2007
By Stephen Thoemmes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I did not expect so much information. I just wanted the book because I've lusted for this motorcycle in my early adulthood. The bike really 'turned my key' and reading the book educated me on what went into the making of this bike. Motorcycle engineers are now very much admired by me.
