Product Description

This American book was written for the many thousands of pioneer motorcyclists who bought the first mass produced machines (one factory alone produced 10,000 motorcycles in 1910). Many of these new motorcyclists would have had little knowledge of the internal combustion engine and indeed a number would have previously relied on horses for transport. Although the book was primarily intended for the American market much of the information is universal and could be applied equally to most types of early motorcycle. To quote the Author There is one chapter in particular-that treating of road troubles, their causes and remedies-which will be of great value to all users of this popular vehicle, whether experts or amateurs, and to it especial attention is invited. With those who give this feature of the book proper consideration break-downs will be less frequent and less expensive
