Racing Line – British motorcycle racing in the golden age of the big single

Racing Line is the story of big-bike racing in Britain during the 1960s – when the British racing single reached its peak; when exciting racing unfolded at circuits across the land every summer; and when Britain took its last great generation of riding talent and engineering skill to the world. More info:

The sight and sound of an MV-mounted John Surtees in action, at Silverstone in the late ’50s, set Bob Guntrip on course for a lifetime spent on and around motorcycles. A career in journalism led to stints on bike magazines in the UK and Australia, firing the passion still further, and, despite later wanderings into cricket, rugby and science writing, it seemed inevitable that Bob would one day return to his first love. The result is Racing Line, his first book, documenting the excitement of the 1960s, one of the most dramatic decades in the history of British motorcycle sport.

Great British Bikes

Download available here:

Over the last 100 years, British bikes have been among the most desirable on the road. Indeed, for much of the twentieth century, British motorcycles ruled the world.

Here, in this magnificent tribute, we pay homage to the most charismatic motorcycles, focusing on the road and racing bikes most admired and aspired to, ranging from high performance singles through parallel twins, vee-twins – and even a unique square four.

Join us as we celebrate the golden age and lasting memory of Greatest British Bikes including:

Triumph Bonneville – Ultimate version of Edward Turner’s famous parallel twin, plus exclusive footage of the 2001 version.

BSA Gold Star – Winner of prestigious events such as the Isle of Man Clubmans TT road races, GP motocross and international trials. The greatest all-rounder.

BSA Sports Twins – BSA built rivals to the Triumph Bonneville. From the ISDT Star Twins to the fabulous Rocket Gold Star.

BSA/Triumph Triples – The BSA Rocket Three and Triumph Trident were a match for any opposition in the Formula 750 class racing of that era.

Norton Commando – One of the best bikes ever made in England. Superb on the road and a winner on the racetrack.

Manx Norton – Kept the British presence alive in Grand Prix racing for 40 years, winning many Isle of Man TT races and world championships along the way.

AJS 7R/Matchless G50 – 350 and 500cc versions of the same single-cylinder road racer which remained competitive until the lates sixties. The Manx Norton’s biggest rival.

Vincent Black Shadow – The high specification of Vincent’s legendary machine ultimately led to the company’s downfall as only the most affluent enthusiasts could afford them.

Velocette Thruxton – The end of a line of strong sporting singles from the Birmingham company, and a winner in international endurance races.

Ariel Square Four – The only four cylinder machine ever put into volume production by a British manufacturer. It could go from 10 to 100mph in top gear!

Charismatic, celebrated and truly classic…the Greatest British Bikes.
