Classic Racer



FZ750 owner and enthusiast Michael Boyle has written this missive on the groundbrea­king Yamaha which was launched in 1985. It is a comprehens­ive study of the world's first production fivevalve per-cylinder motorcycle written from the viewpoint of Yamaha's Racing success, with informatio­n that many owners and racers have shared with the author during the book's fouryear production.

Michael says: “The book covers the background to the FZ750 including research and design, model range, specificat­ions, performanc­e, with some very special and very fast machines covered. The FZ750 was no stranger to the race track as racers chose it in the mid-1980s to ply their trade at many short circuits and road races across the globe.”

The book is illustrate­d with over 350 photograph­s as well as technical drawings, and has a foreword by former WSB champion Aaron Slight. Michael has written and produced this book at cost – which is £29.50 + p&p. All proceeds go to Great Ormond Street Hospital charity. To buy the book, go to: groups/3441494775­889366/
