    American Racer' 1940-1980 covers the evolution of American Class "C" racing year by year, from the inception of stripped street machines in 1934 to the purpose-built racing motorcycles which became the standard in the following decades. Arranged chronologically, it documents the yearly round of Class "C" competition including the classic Mile, Half-Mile, T.T. and Roadrace events. It also covers dry lake record attempts, Drag Racing, Sidecars, Enduros and Speedway. Each decade is illustrated by carefully chosen photographs which convey the excitement and drama of American motorcycle racing.

    Anyone who's involved with bikes should have this book, written and researched by Stephen Wright. It's filled with thoroughly researched text that manages to avoid being overly technical, magnificent photos, even printed on good paper. This excellently written book covers the nuances of racing motorcycles from 1940 until 1980. This time in history is now forever protected for the reader to research.
