Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
"For over a century, motorbikes have offered Kiwis cheap transport, weekend riding, off-road excitement and speed. From the early days of motorised bicycles through to the big engines and high speeds of the Indians, Harleys and Trumphs of the mid-twentieth century, this book shows them all. And there were plenty of them on-and off- New Zealand roads. Farm bikes, police bikes, scooters, motocross and speedway, despatch riders, and the Japanese ' transformation' of the 1970s are all covered in this snapshot of New Zealand's motorcycling history. Motorbikes around New Zealand is an affectionate look at what these machines have meant to Kiwis since the beginning of the twentieth century"-- Back cover.
