Royal Enfield Books
- The Legend Rides On
Gordon G. May
Sumptuous photographs of Royal Enfields old and new, interviews with their owners, and the people who look after these bikes… This is a book to drool over. Written in 2005 by the team behind Royal Enfield Books in association with Royal Enfield India, this large format coffee-table book celebrates Royal Enfield’s 50th birthday in India.
Royal Enfield – The Legend Rides On reveals exactly why those 50 years are indeed something to celebrate and why the Royal Enfield Bullet in particular is a bike loved across the globe.
Over 40 pages are devoted to reviews of some older Redditch-made machines (including pre-war 2-strokers and V-twins; post war J2; Flying Flea; Interceptor and Bullet) and include interviews with their present day owners. There’s also a rare insight into production at the Chennai factory, stunning photographs of all the Indian motorcycles and derivatives plus fascinating interviews with their owners. This book is sure to provide years of pleasure for anyone who loves classic motorcycles, especially this exceptional marque.
Hardback, 30 x 26.5cm, 164 pages, full colour. £29.95
