Extremly comprehensive book in the subject. Amazing pictures (except for... print quality / as limited DPI used for printing can be clearly seen). Just "upgraded" soft cover to hardcover (on bindery).

Great insight into a number of Italian brands and there history, but no information on brands such as SVVM (SWM motorcycle) and Fantic motorcycle. More research is required to produce a book on Italian motorcycles.

This is a great book packed with nostalgic photos and text. Each of the books' 18 chapters covers one of the great italian marques over 250 pages. Photographically there is a lot squeezed into this book with typically 5 or 6 photos on every page. In a way this leaves you wanting more as you realise that to do justice to all 18 marques, covering all aspects of the history of riders, designers, teams, bikes and engines the book would be enormous.
A lot of the photos are fairly small and black & white. There are several exploded technical drawings. I love that kind of thing but sadly, due to space restrictions, a lot of these are very small format so you will need a magnifying glass for close scrutiny!
As well as the technical side of the book it's great to reflect on the different riding styles (compared to modern) of the riers with those skinny tyres, dustbin fairings and puddin' basin lids. Great stuff

Should have been excellent, but for me let down with inferior images, and not the best printing.
Have seen some of the images before, published better, hence 2 stars. Sorry.
I was hoping for much better.

another good'un from Mick Walker (now sadly deceased) I enjoyed this immensely, but could have done with more on the various factories' parallel twins, but that's just me..
