Products: Classic TT racers – The Grand Prix years, 1949-1976

Greg Pullen has come out with a lovely new book, covering a time when there may have been less innovation than the early years of the TT, but was still important to the manufacturers and of course, as a race in the GP championship, to the riders.

It shows the constant evolution, tells of the battles and heads into the development of the bikes and engines.

I thoroughly enjoyed dipping in and out of this book; indeed it lived in the kitchen for breakfast reading, the office for five minute screen breaks and even the toilet! (Sorry, Greg!)


It’s written with enough detail to keep the die-hard fans happy, but is accessible to those not so familiar. A great read with great photography.
