One Man's Motorcycles 1939-1949 - Peter McManus
This book is the sometime best seller in the National Motorcycle Museum shop and the VMCC is lucky to have secured supplies of the re-printed edition which are all signed by the author. More than just a book about old bikes the story covers the Author’s formative years in the depression through a Dickensian engineering apprenticeship followed by aero engine development at Rolls Royce in Derby. Having started a Motorcycle Dealership after the war the book goes on to tell the stories of the machines and characters that passed through the shop set against the backdrop of the austere post war years.
