The newest entry in this very stylish series celebrates our love affair with the motorcycle and the strong culture within the biker community, from mods with scooters emblazoned with lights and mirrors to leather-clad racer-rockersMotorbike riders today have an increasingly sophisticated and more specialized range of bikes to choose from, but interest in classic bikes has also influenced the design of these new machines. This volume showcases more than 60 stylish bikes of all shapes and sizes along with their owners' personal stories. Many of these iconic bikes have been customized with unique styling, and the stylish photography shows a plethora of bike detailing covering signage, gauges, dials, and bike typography. The bikes range from early examples of powered bicycles used in World War I through sidecars for carrying the family, to cutting-edge 21st-century design capable of speeds of more than 150mph. The book also includes details of extraordinary intercontinental journeys; bike culture hubs such as cafés, workshops, and garages; bike collectors; iconic legends of motorcycle racing; and a look at different uses for bikes. It highlights iconic makes such as Vespa, Lambretta, Honda mopeds, BSA winged wheels, Cycle masters, Harley Davidson, Indian, Norton, BMW, Enfield, Ducati, Moto Guzzi, and Suzuki: from sports and military bikes, fully equipped tourers and trail bikes, stylish city scooters to beautifully engineered Japanese machines.
