Some custom motorcycles get the legendary status by their designs and their builders, but legendary motorcycles are not necessarily custom motorcycles. They are made famous because of their owners or and/or stories associated with them. Author Basem Wasef got the excellent idea to profile the bikes that have achieved their mythic status in the last century. For example, James Dean’s first and last bikes, Kenny Robert’s Yamaha TZ750 Dirt Tracker, Dick Mann’s BSA Gold Star and Matchless G50 TT, Elvis Presley’s Harley-Davidson Electra Glide, Freddie Spencer’s 85 Honda GP bike, Von Dutch’s Originals, Burt Munro’s Munro Special, Evil Knievel’s HD’s, Steve McQueen’s Great Escapes, Easy Rider’s Captain America, and many others. Their stories recounted here in intimate details make Legendary Motorcycles a riveting read for both casual enthusiasts and passionate aficionados. Even my 17 years old son read it from A to Z. This beautiful hard cover book includes 26 chapters illustrated with original photography and rare historic images. 176 pages, 152 color photos. (Reminder: in 26 days, it’s Christmas). Legendary Motorcycles.
