Finally The world's most incredible motorcycles are given the artful representation they deserve.
The motorcycle should have disappeared with the advent of the inexpensive automobile, since Henry Ford's Model T usurped the motorcycle's position as a primary form of utilitarian transportation, but a funny thing happened on the way to extinction - the motorcycle not only survived but thrived. Enough people were enamored of the thrill and beauty of the two-wheeled mechanical beast to ensure it would continue to exist indefinitely. And exist they have Many of the motorcycles manufactured over the past century truly fit the description of "classic," and many consider these machines works of art.
Written by noted motorcycle author Patrick Hahn, "Classic Motorcycles "presents the history of motorcycling as told through the most significant, iconic, classic motorcycles of all time, with both period photography and modern portrait photography. All the best domestic and international makes are represented here, from BMWs, Indians, and Triumphs to Vincents, Ducatis, and Harley-Davidsons - the most classic models. You'll drool over the 1933 Matchless Silver Hawk, and you'll want to tear out the page displaying the 1956 Triumph Thunderbird and frame it. Each motorcycle was shot in a studio setting using photographer Tom Loeser's light-painting technique. Period ads and relevant historic photos and documents are spread throughout the book to supplement the portraits of the bikes, really evoking a sense of time and place. Prepare to be in awe of the undeniably classic motorcycles in this collection. It's the only motorcycle history you'll need.

Описание: The motorcycle is back! The Ride is about custom motorcycles as motorcycles are meant to be and the people who build and drive them. Similar to the fresh contemporary scene that has established itself around bicycles in the last few years, the motorcycle is currently undergoing an aesthetic rebirth. A young subculture worldwide is discovering the motorcycle as an expression of personality and creativity. The Ride explores motorcycle riding as it is meant to be: as a means of getting around with attitude, an extension of one's own body, an expression of personal freedom, but also as a significant challenge to technical expertise, craftsmanship, physics, discipline, and driving skill. In the motorcycle scene of 1960s Britain, it was frowned upon to drive a motorcycle as it was produced in a factory. Following in this historical tradition, The Ride focuses on those who are creating customized motorcycles that come as close as possible to one's own vision of how pure riding should be. For example, the creative young people who are buying old, wrecked bikes on eBay, removing everything but the motor and frame, and then rebuilding them in ways that are as radical and subversively creative as they are knowledgeable and respectful of tradition. The archetypes of the new motorcycles created in this way classic board racers, bobbers, cafe racers, and choppers may very well be 30-50 or even 80 years old, but what is made out of them is new, not retro. Decked out with state-of-the-art disk brakes, LED lights, gears, and drive components, these machines are more agile, faster, more radical, and therefore more fun than anything produced in the past. The Ride features transformations such as a boring plastic motorcycle made in Japan in the 1990s turned into a slick cafe racer with an Italian feel, a soulless neobaroque machine turned into an in-your-face scrambler, or an old find from grandpa's barn turned into an absolutely comfort-free hardtail with the coolest of sounds. The book also presents small, local custom motorcycle workshops from around the globe that have established themselves with sought-after products that inspire other builders worldwide. It features extensive profiles of pioneers including Walt Siegl, Wrenchmonkees, DP Customs, Cole Foster, Deus ex Machina, Shinya Kimura, Ian Barry, and Uwe Ehinger and their very different ideas of how a motorcycle should look. The unique bikes created in their garages sometimes made-to-order, sometimes in a limited series are often technically superior, better thought-out, and simply more radical than those produced by larger manufacturers who need to appeal to a broader audience. The spirit of this young motorcycle scene is reminiscent of that of current bike frame builders or even today's new food subculture. It's about making, transforming, or designing something with your own hands. In this case, something that will get a person from A to B, makes noise, smells, vibrates, and comes to life. What could be more exciting and satisfying?

Описание: There are many ways of designing a motorcycle, but it takes a great deal of artistic sensitivity to create a legend from only two cylinders. That is exactly what Moto Guzzi, the prestige manufacturer in Mandello del Lario, has done. Active in motorcycle construction since 1920, particularly in the years after 1945 it created motorcycles that made history, especially those with the powerful V-twin engine installed lengthwise in the chassis. For forty years the V-twin four-stroke engine has been the Italian companys flagship. The fine Italians, Le Mans, and California types, and the small 125s, 250s and 350s are described here with accuracy and detail. This comprehensive volume describes all models and technical details. As is the style of the authors, they also provide background information about the company and the industry. It is not all about machines and horsepower, but also the people who put their stamp on the operations: not only a treat for fans of serious technical information, but a gripping story as well.
