Review:

"The book is very comprehensive, and a good addition to the other quality Velocette books on your bookshelves." - Fishtail Downunder "This very handsome hardback book has excellent quality paper, print and photographs of machines, sales brochures, promotional material ... It's almost worth buying this book solely for the history portrayed through all the sales material. This is a definitive development history of the Velocette motorcycles based on the author's earlier work ... an absolute must for Velocette enthusiasts and restorers." - LE Velo Club "The extra info included in the new edition is very valuable and interesting. The illustrations are all very well captioned, and the author's attention to detail is to be applauded. Rod Burris has been gathering the material which has gone into this book for something like four decade ... and it shows." - Real Classic "This is a lavish edition filled with great color photography. There are many shots of restored bikes, plus old press and factory shots, as well as vintage advertising. This is definitely the definitive history on the most famous Velocette motorcycles and with its comprehensive appendices it makes the volume an excellent reference tool." - Old Autos, Canada "The book is very comprehensive, and a good addition to the other quality Velocette books on your bookshelves." - Fishtail Downunder "This very handsome hardback book has excellent quality paper, print and photographs of machines, sales brochures, promotional material ...

About the Author:

Rod Burris has been a Velocette enthusiast for some 50 years. Having spent 30 of those years researching the model, he is well placed to author this book, which builds upon and enhances the groundbreaking work published some years ago in his original volume. As an active member and official of the Velocette Owners' Club, Rod has been able to gather the information for this book from a wide variety of contacts and sources, and the result is a larger, more comprehensive historical and technical document than his previous volume. Rod is a science graduate and semi-retired teacher. He rides a Venom Clubman, which he has owned for nearly 40 years.
