Product description

Review

"The book is very comprehensive, and a good addition to the other quality Velocette books on your bookshelves." - Fishtail Downunder"This very handsome hardback book has excellent quality paper, print and photographs of machines, sales brochures, promotional material ... It's almost worth buying this book solely for the history portrayed through all the sales material. This is a definitive development history of the Velocette motorcycles based on the author's earlier work ... an absolute must for Velocette enthusiasts and restorers." - LE Velo Club"The extra info included in the new edition is very valuable and interesting. The illustrations are all very well captioned, and the author's attention to detail is to be applauded. Rod Burris has been gathering the material which has gone into this book for something like four decade ... and it shows." - Real Classic"This is a lavish edition filled with great color photography. There are many shots of restored bikes, plus old press and factory shots, as well as vintage advertising. This is definitely the definitive history on the most famous Velocette motorcycles and with its comprehensive appendices it makes the volume an excellent reference tool." - Old Autos, Canada "The book is very comprehensive, and a good addition to the other quality Velocette books on your bookshelves." - Fishtail Downunder"This very handsome hardback book has excellent quality paper, print and photographs of machines, sales brochures, promotional material ...

About the Author

A motorcycle enthusiast since his early teens, Rod has always been fascinated by Velocette, collecting the catalogues, reading the road test and pedal cycling all over the country to see them! Other makes were purchased first but a 1963 Clubman was eventually acquired, starting off a long period of ownership and yet more research enriched from the many "Velo" friendships borne along the way. The author of a previous Velocette book, Rod has also written several articles published in well known "Classic" magazines. An enthusiast for over 40 years. Rod once had his motorcycle work confiscated at school. Now himself a Science teacher, Rod brings his hobby to the classroom still. A multibike owner with many interests, Rod has always held special regard for Velo's and riders a Mark 1 Clubmans Venom. Ownership led eventually to the first version of this book; research has continued for nearly twenty years altogether. Rod has also penned articles for several prominent motorcycle magazines, when not in the garage.
