That Man's Bike Again - Peter McManus
The companion volume to "One Man's Motorcycles", this book covers the decades from 1950 to 1980.
British motorcycles led the world in 1950 as they had done for many decades. By 1980 it was all over and the leading motorcycle companies had put their shutters up. But the book is not only about motorcycles as the great events in the wider world are also illustrated. Changes were equally dramatic from the conquest of Everest, the first moon landing, Elvis Presley and the advent of Margaret Thatcher! Inflation soared, terrorism spread its evil tentacles.
Lavishly illustrated with over 300 illustrations and with short chapters you will find it eminently readable and you will be able to pick it up, open it anywhere and read a few chapters. Contains many hitherto unseen photographs kindly loaned by some of the most outstanding motorcyclists of the time.
