Product Description

Superbikes of the Seventies by Roland Brown

The 1970s was a golden age for motorcycles. Some of the most exciting bikes ever built were introduced during the Seventies, as the top manufacturers in Europe, England, the United States, and Japan battled for supremacy in speed, performance and styling. It all began in 1969 with Hondas CB750, a stunning blend of four-cylinder performance and sophistication that would be dubbed the worlds first superbike.
As the decade progressed, the superbike revolution spread around the world. Italy produced everything from the thundering V-twins of Ducati and Moto Guzzi to the fire-breathing fours of MV Augusta and Benellis straight six. In Britain Triumph came up with the thrilling three-cylinder Trident, while Germanys BMW countered with its refined flat twins. In America Harley Davidson entered the Superbike sweepstakes by adding bold cafe-racer styling to its classic V-twin design. Thirty-four of the greatest bikes of this great era are profiled here in words and pictures. Packed with hundreds of colour photographs and period sale brochures, this is a must have book for classic bike enthusiasts who want to learn everything about the strengths and weaknesses of these exciting motorcycles.
