n the modern era, mass-produced motorcycles tend to be Japanese or Italian, with the 'big four' oriental manufacturers dominating the market. However, this wasn't always the case. Until the 1950s, and even into the '60s, British makers such as Scott, Rudge, BSA, Norton and Vincent ruled the roost. These legendary companies sold their bikes around the world, winningracing championships and setting speed records as they went. They, and many smaller British firms like them, are motorcycling's founding companies. This is the story of those pioneering firms, whose engineers - many self taught -were fired by racing ambition, commercial rivalry, patriotic duty and, above all, a passion for innovation. Superbly illustrated with over 150 colour pictures, many previously unpublished, Classic British Motorcycles is a captivating and highly informativeaccount of the men, machines, race meetings and world events that shaped the development of the motorcycle from its bicycle origins.
