Description

Bills own story covers the golden Years of road racing, taking in the Continental Grands Prix, the TT and a winter season in Australia.  By the time he retired in 1958, he has two World Championships and two TT wins to his name as well as numerous Grand Prix victories.  Bill raced no less than 29 different road racing machines – not to mention nine works trials bikes – for some of the biggest teams of the day; Royal Enfield, Velocette, AJS, Matchless, NSU, MV Agusta, Benelli and Moto Guzzi.  Written in his own words, this book tells it the way it was, what happened behind the scenes at the various factories and races, the highs and the lows of racing as part of the glamorous continental circus, and the camaraderi that existed between many of the riders.  Hardcover, 304 pages, black & white illustrations.
