It's an interesting idea for a motorcycle book let down by poor execution. It starts out well with a lot of important as well as lesser known models from the early 20th century. As the years go by, the choices become more erratic: for 1969 they feature a home-built Honda racebike. OK, they got the right brand but the wrong bike - what about the CB750, the bike that turned the motorcycle world on its ear? It's not featured in any year. But the mundane copycat cruiser Suzuki Intruder 1400 is - TWICE - in 1988 and 1992. Huh? Errors: the 1922 Neracar. It's "200cc engine includes a kingpin, drag link, pitman arm, and tie rod." Um, those are steering components, guys. Also: the 1982 Yamaha Vision (with its classic 1980s styling) is represented with a photo of a 70s Yamaha 2-stroke, maybe an RD250. Way too many customs, the most egregious example being a 1991 V8 powered trike, whose only motorcycle components are handlebars and a Kawasaki front end. That monstrosity rates three pictures, while many important and beautiful bikes only get one, often just a detail shot of a specific component. The front and back inside covers show a closeup of a Yamaha Radian (uncredited). I owned one, they are nice bikes, but why feature a UJM on those premium pages? Anyway, I paid 10 bucks for it at Goodwill, and it will be returning there with my next box of donations.
