THE AMERICAN MOTORCYCLE, 1869-1914Volume One of The American Motorcycle, 1869-1914 transports the reader back to a time long since vanished – when life was simple, the roads were uncrowded, and every ride was an adventure. Hundreds of spectacular black and white and color photographs, the majority of which have never been published before, evoke these times and enable the reader to follow the evolution of the American motorcycle during its most diverse period of development, 1869-1914.
