With plenty of photos and anecdotes galore, if you're simply interested in what makes motorcycling special, you'll like it too!" Motorcycle Rider "Photographs there are in plenty, the b/w pics of the sixties are to me especially interesting " Nacelle For anyone who lived through the motorcycle culture of the '50s, '60s, and '70s, or even those who didn't, the book is packed with info and images related to cafe racers and the Rockers who loved them. With a stack of black & white photos liberally scattered through its 96 pages, the tome traces the origin of the cafe racer and the rebellious spirit that went with it, going on to detail the uptake of the style by manufacturers themselves."

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.
Well worth buying
