Item description for Legendary Motorcycles by Luigi Corbetta...
Motorcycles connote freedom and free spirits. They have inspired songs like "Born to Be Wild" and have helped make the image of James Dean. They've come a long way from their ungainly two- and three-wheeled ancestors that first appeared in the late nineteenth-century. Packed with archival and specially commissioned photographs, this stunning volume traces the evolution of the motorcycle, documenting the major milestones in this illustrious history and spotlighting the most influential models that have emerged over the last century. Among the many manufacturers whose bikes are represented are BMW, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Moto Guzzi, Suzuki, Triumph, and Yamaha, all of which are showcased in hundreds of brilliant color photographs. Accompanying the extraordinary photographs are the stories behind the vehicles, with a wealth of technical information about each motorcycle.
A superbly illustrated chronicle of the most influential and innovative motorcycle models from the past one hundred years.
Luigi Corbetta is a writer and a freelance journalist who has written for the leading Italian monthly magazines on motorcycles for many years. He has collaborated with Motociclismo and Motociclismo d'Epoca, the most important Italian monthly magazine in the motorcycle field, and has also been involved in their historical archives.
