MOTORCYCLE ENGINEERING
WRITTEN BY PHIL IRVING

Written by an eminent designer with an international reputation, Motorcycle Engineering sets out, for the first time, all those problems – technical, commercial and aestetic – upon whose solution the success of any new motorcycle design must depend. It describes present day constructional methods, contrasting them with some practices of the past and, avoiding unnecessary discussion of basic theories, clearly shows their practical application in solving the special problems of size, weight and stability inherent in the design of a single-track vehicle.
