A mile­stone work when it was first pub­lished many years back, this book is a mainly pic­to­rial collection of the Aus­tralian mo­tor­cy­cling scene from 1899 to 1980. It was edited by Mal­colm Grant and Harold H. Paynt­ing with con­tri­bu­tions from some distin­guished mem­bers of the lo­cal scene, many no longer with us. Just 5,000 copies of the high qual­ity hard cover work were pro­duced and all pro­ceeds have gone to the James Flood Char­ity Trust which ben­e­fits a num­ber of char­i­ta­ble or­gan­i­sa­tions. The re­main­ing stock, of which there is very lit­tle, is now held by the Lions Club of Dig­gers Rest, Vic­to­ria, who have them avail­able for $80.00 plus $16.65 postage within Aus­tralia.

It’s a big, heavy book that comes in a slip­case and is an in­valu­able ad­di­tion to the li­brary of any­one with even a pass­ing in­ter­est in our mo­tor­cy­cling her­itage.
