The relative simplicity of adding an engine to a bicycle frame meant that in the early 20th century hundreds of different manufacturers tried their luck with motorcycles. Those that established lasting businesses were then challenged after the Second World War by innovative new producers, particularly from Japan. With profiles of the most significant models, this reference book provides a comprehensive alphabetical listing of motorcycle manufacturers from the first powered two-wheelers up to the most recent classics of the mid 1980s.
