Born to Be Wild

100 of the most legendary and coveted motorcycles of all time

Dream Rides: The most spectacular bikes on the planet. From the 1894 Hildebrand & Wolfmüller to the 2020 Aston Martin AMB 001, this book lavishly explores 100 of the most desirable motorcycles to have ever sped thrillingly around a circuit or along an open road. From pioneering record-breakers, luxury tourers, and legendary roadracers to GP-winning machines, iconic superbikes, and exotic customs, this book celebrates motorcycle design and engineering at its highest level. Many examples are from acclaimed private collections and very rarely seen. Others are the all-out stars of renowned motorcycle museums—such as the 1938 Brough Superior “Golden Dream” or the 1957 MV Agusta 500 4C, which took John Surtees to World Championship glory. Alongside some early survivors in astonishingly original condition is a stable of fabled racers—the actual machines that were competed on by the likes of Dario Ambrosini, Tarquinio Provini, Mike Hailwood, Giacomo Agostini, Barry Sheene, and Kenny Roberts.

The fascinating stories behind these fabulous motorbikes are expertly recounted in detail, alongside stunning imagery specially taken for the book by the world’s leading motorcycle photographers. Also included are rare archival gems, from early posters to remarkable action shots. In addition, there is a foreword by legendary petrolhead Jay Leno, and interviews with George Barber, founder of the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum; Sammy Miller, championship-winning racer and founder of the Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum; Ben Walker, Department Director of Motorcycles at Bonhams; Paul d’Orléans, founder of The Vintagent; and Gordon McCall, cofounder of The Quail Motorcycle Gathering, the world-renowned motorcycle concours event held in Carmel, California.

A cornucopia of motorcycle treasures and an absolute must-have for all bike enthusiasts!

What a magnificent tome! It is simply stunning. The writing, organization and, of course, the photographs really don't get better than this.

Off the Charts

Absolutely off the charts! There is no reason for anyone to ever do another book on the history of the greatest motorcycles in the world. This is the exclamation point on the subject.

A first

MalloryTesta,12 maggio 2023
There has never been anything remotely like this published before in the motorcycle world. The massive sense of quality in terms of design and substance and the excellence of its content in both words and pictures is difficult to convey until you see it.

The Ultimate Motorcycle Book

MalloryTesta,12 maggio 2023
A superb set of books; the best books I have ever seen on motorcycles. I have a huge library of motorcycle books, so I know of what I speak of. The Limited Edition shows incredibly impressive printing and presentation.
