British 250cc Racing Motorcycles

£18.99

Product description

In the early years after the war, the lack of 250cc racing motorcycles from Britain's 'head-in-the-sand' motorcycle manufacturers forced those privateer racers wanting to compete in this popular class of racing to create their own machines.l Building such motorcycles meant inventively mixing and matching parts from various manufacturers, and using imaginative tuning techniques to further improve performance. This book is an illustrated tribute to the ingenuity of individual racing motorcycle builders, and a permanent record of the fascinating - and amazingly competitive - machines they built against the odds.
