This should be a good format but is let down by pictures of both sides of many bikes with their fairings on resulting in virtually identical mirror images with no view of their engines and the small detail picture is also to often a repeat, at the same scale, of part of the main picture that add no further detail. The specifications also fall short with brakes for example that are inadequately described as "drums front and rear" whether the bikes have a one sided single leading shoe front brake or if they have a double twin leading shoe and the same applies to discs with no drum or disc sizes included.

Further confusion, at least for me, is the use of German PS instead of BHP (brake horse power) and with the weights given in metric kg and speeds given in imperial mph. It would be much better if both are given and the normal way would be for the second to be shown in brackets.

A very well produced volume with excellent content and superbly illustrated throughout. Should be of interest to any enthusiast interested in racing motorcycles.

Any classic racing motorcycle enthusiast should not be without this book. It provides historical, technical and superb pictorial details of some sixty four technically important and historically significant classic racing motorcycles, many of them very rare, all of them fascinating. The inclusion of the never-raced 1958 500cc MV Six alone makes the acquisition of the book a worthwhile venture.
