4.0 out of 5 stars Those were the days....
The best thing about this book is that it does remind me of the spirit of those biking days and it provides some great links to the current bikes being produced...I might just follow up on one of the new Nortons....
However I should just say that its not entirely accurate, on page 44 Celia Powell is Celia Cullen - I know because I am that rider...Also the exhaust is...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected...
Although for most it might have been what they were looking for, I expected a more substantial review, but alas... The book itself was not worth the price I paid for it

However I should just say that its not entirely accurate, on page 44 Celia Powell is Celia Cullen - I know because I am that rider...Also the exhaust is a Yoshimura not an Alpha - took me a day to put it on - and the bars are from a Laverda Jota- they are not Ace Bars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price., 11 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cafe Racer Phenomenon (Those Were the Days Series) (Paperback)
A very basic publication but it brings back some great memories along with some facts that I never new before. Worth the price although I'm not crazy about the format of the book - It does not look tidy on the bookshelf.
