    The American Motorcycle 1869-1914

    by Stephen Wright

    Memorial Edition

    Volume 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. 

    When Stephen Wright passed away on April 10, 2014, there were several hundred of these books left. In his memory a memorial edition has been created, which includes a memorial written by Stephen's daughter, Hillary.

    Wright's first two books, The American Racer, Vols. 1 and 2, are truly collectors items. These books are sold out and most likely will not be reprinted. One of these books in fair condition typically sells for $750.00 to $1000.00.

    The American Motorcycle, 1869-1914 will surely become as coveted as his first two books.
