Available in Stock
Enthusiasm for personal transport was checked by austerity in post-war Britain but by the 1950s things were improving and British motorcycle manufacturers dominated the scene. This selection of images of Earls Court trade shows during the 1950s presents the latest showroom models, famous racers, concept bikes and prototypes in high-quality black-and-white photographs. By the end of the decade imported models are increasingly in evidence, portending what was in store for the British motorcycle industry.
