Books in the library

From the author of the Don't Tell Mum I Work on the Rigs sees (the surely a bit bonkers) Paul Carter circumnavigating Australia on a bio-diesel motorcycle.

The story of the motorcycle starts when it was little more than a bicycle frame with an engine strapped on, soon becoming a purpose designed vehicle for cheap every-day transport.

Specifically addressing sportbike suspension systems, this book guides you through the process of setting up your bike's suspension to suit your riding style.

Explains the principles behind motorcycle electrical systems and how they work.

Guides enthusiasts through the most essential processes for assembling a high-performance engine, car, or motorcycle.

This elegant, picture-lavish book, pays tribute by showing all the classic models in exquisite photographic detail, accompanied by an expert commentary.

Motorcycles have come a long way since they first appeared in the late nineteenth-century.

In this unique book, the author looks at engine characteristics, gearing, geometry, aerodynamics and suspension, all of which are crucial to performance.

Goes deep inside the world of performance, offering usable insights into how systems work and how modifications translate into more power and better handling on the street or at the track.
