BMW is a marque not commonly associated with the café racer scene.

The Nippon Chop

Enter the world of customised Japanese motorcycles and be surprised what can be turned into chopper, bobber, trikes and quads, based on bikes from the land of the rising sun.




The Brit Chop

Brit Chops? Bring it on! Many books have been written about British bikes and their racing history, but no one has devoted an entire book solely to the British-only custom motorcycle, and its chopper, cruiser, bobber and trike scene ... until now..






Italian Café Racers


Coming from a nation with a great motorcycle racing heritage, Italian motorcycles have, unsurprisingly, always had a sporting flair. This book lifts the lid on the growing trend of custom Italian café conversions, illustrated in detail with stunning images of select sporting, racing, and caféd Italian motorcycles




Italienische Gespanne (Meaning Italian sidecars)

1. Dieses Buch ist eine illustrierte Zelebrierung italienischer Motorradgespanne, in einem enzyklopädischen Stil. Es ist das erste deutsche Buch über italienische Gespanne, welches eine Lücke in der Motorrad-Literatur füllt und richtet sich an Gespannliebhaber sowie Italo Fans, seien solche Gespanne von Privat, Motorradläden oder vom Hersteller kommend. 


2. This German publication presents an illustrated overview of Italian powered sidecars, ranging from early period examples to rigs from marques not commonly associated with the sidecar. 

Modern existing Italian brands with a third wheel pitch themselves alongside period footage from Gilera's sidecar glory days.  

Classic Italian superbikes from the 70s and 80s in sidecar guise are also included, so are current classic racing efforts or Italian scooter outfits, vintage or modern.
