Motorbikes were widely used by all sides in the Second World War due to their agility, adaptability and speed. Only a precious few survive today as rare and valuable collectors' items. The author, employee of the Photographic Archive IWM, has unearthed a fabulous selection of 250 black-and-white images of all the major marques taken by official war photographers. Famous British names (Triumph, Norton, Matchless, BSA, Velocette, James and Rudge) feature along with the bigger American machines from Indian and Harley-Davidson.
