This splendid history of models, racing and engineering traces the development of motorcycles at BMW from the beginning to the present day chronologically. In addition to the many interesting motorcycles, the people who played a leading role in motorcycle development are also portrayed. By placing it in its historical environment the brand is seen in a totally new, surprising light. This book therefore convincingly documents the two-wheelers from Bavaria, but it is also a "human" story in which rubber, sheet metal and screws are not all that count. It first appeared in 1993 and has been completely revised to include the latest developments and motorcycles of the Bavarian manufacturer. 422 pages, 174 b/w pictures, 313 color pictures, bound.
