There is nothing so exciting or so liberating as riding a motorbike; for sheer speed,danger and excitement bikes have become the ultimate icons of the late 20thC.Harleys,Popes and Indian Chiefs is the first book devoted exclusively to a pictorial appreciation of shining chrome and metal.Over 150 photographs,taken especially for the book,capture the raw energy and excitement of these machines.Each image reveals the splendour of over fifty international models past and present,each with a unique design to study; such as the 1913 Silent Gray Fellow,the Henderson K,the 1951 Indian Chief Roadmaster,and the 1995 Kawasaki Ninja.The colour photographs are accompanied by archive memorabilia, which set the motorcycles in their historical contexts and chart the evolution of their design.Also included is a pictorial account of the restoration of a 1934 Ariel VG500 Deluxe carried out over a year of loving care and attention,taking it from a rusty wreck to a gleaming dream machine - an inspirational journey for all enthusiasts.The popularity of the motorcycle - which has always been strong among the many hardcore collectors - is experiencing a resurgence today among the newly hip; for their aesthetic qualities and the beauty of their design. This celebratory volume will appeal to all enthusiasts who yearn for the open road and who are turned on by the gleam of polished chrome and leather. Since April 2013,and again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering its prices,weight allowances,dimensions and lowered its qualifying compensation rates too!
