5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid, 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Classic Motorcycle Race Engines: Expert Technical Analysis of the World's Great Power Units (Hardcover)
This book is a 'must read' for a true motorcycle enthusiast. It wasn't till i read it fully and spent time re-reading it that i realised how important this book is. Many years ago i began to listen to interviews with Jerry Burgess and wondered what he meant, upon reading Kevin's book i began to understand.The inclusion of Cosworth and reference to Curtis and Pratt and Whitney in this thesis are essential.If you truly want to know where inovation and genius dwell, read this book.Be it Vincent's cantilever swing arm or the adoption of harmonic expansion chambers in two strokes to the inevitable steep inclines to Cosworth valve angles this book has it all. Only recently when Valentino rejoined Yamaha did i have to listen to a Yamaha engineer re-qoute the myth of 'after the war we could not make airoplanes, so we built bikes. That is why we are the best.' If you read this book you will 'beg to differ.' In a world where myth becomes reality this book is a cognotive and lateral sensibility.
