Written by noted motorcycle author Patrick Hahn, Classic Motorcycles presents the history of motorcycling as told through the most significant, iconic, classic motorcycles of all time, with both period photography and modern portrait photography. All the best domestic and international makes are represented here, from BMWs, Indians, and Triumphs to Vincents, Ducatis, and Harley-Davidsons – the most classic models. You’ll drool over the 1933 Matchless Silver Hawk, and you’ll want to tear out the page displaying the 1956 Triumph Thunderbird and frame it. Each motorcycle was shot in a studio setting using photographer Tom Loeser’s light-painting technique. Period ads and relevant historic photos and documents are spread throughout the book to supplement the portraits of the bikes, really evoking a sense of time and place. Prepare to be in awe of the undeniably classic motorcycles in this collection. It’s the only motorcycle history you’ll need.
Classic Motorcycles: The Art of Speed by Pat Hahn
Finally! The world’s most incredible motorcycles are given the artful representation they deserve.
The motorcycle should have disappeared with the advent of the inexpensive automobile, since Henry Ford’s Model T usurped the motorcycle’s position as a primary form of utilitarian transportation, but a funny thing happened on the way to extinction – the motorcycle not only survived but thrived. Enough people were enamoured of the thrill and beauty of the two-wheeled mechanical beast to ensure it would continue to exist indefinitely. And exist they have! Many of the motorcycles manufactured over the past century truly fit the description of ‘classic,’ and many consider these machines works of art.
