A hybrid machine--powered at times by steam, electricity or internal combustion--the motorcycle in its infancy was an innovation to help bicycle racers go faster. As motor age technology advanced, the quest for greater speed at the velodrome peaked, with riders reaching up to 100 mph on pedal-started bikes without brakes, suspensions or gear boxes. This book chronicles the individuals and events that led to the development of motor-powered two-wheelers.
