If you remember off-road stars like the Rickman brothers’ Vic Eastwood, Lew Coffin, and John Avery, then this is a must-have book for your collection. They’re big names who brought the thrills and spills of the golden era of motorcycle sport to a whole generation. For the author, it’s a personal trip down memory lane, as he was lucky enough to see many of these men and women at the height of their racing careers. Seventeen of the rider profiles in this book originally appeared over a three-year period in the pages of The Classic Motorcycle magazine, but the profile on the Rickman brothers – two of scrambling’s true greats – has not been seen in print before.
Accompanied by a new set of over 100 stunning photographs, this is a book that will evoke fond memories for all who share the author’s love of motorcycle sport in the 1960s.
