For the Moto Le Mans afficionado

Rated a Helpful Review

Pros: historical timeline of topically-focused Printed on quality paper

Cons: Abbreviated content for the Complete lack of colour between covers. Disappointingly

The Bottom Line: Only for the devotee of the vintage motorcycle

This book comprises 15 years worth of magazine collected into a single I use book in quotes because of the of the reprinted magazine articles: is really nothing tying any of the together except that deal with a particular [a brand and model of motorcycle] at times during the span of the development.

What *is* nice the book is that many of the are from magazines that completely unavailable Stateside those years, except at comprehensive newsstands that had an slant. Accordingly, for the fan of the Le Mans [or any bike in the Performance Portfolio of titles] you get the opportunity to see what from English-speaking countries the world were saying the bike at the time.

Another point of interest is the changing attitude toward the as it aged and was updated [or, in the of the LeMans, *not* updated] time. Basically, what out as a superbike ahead of the competition into a niche road for the eclectic rider that was amazingly adept despite an neglectful lack of development on the of the manufacturer.

What is sad is that no updates to the has been done in who knows how I’m assuming that the compilation was done sometime in the 90s: why else cut off the date at The Le Mans was sold into the 90s as a new model, and the replacement for the Le Mans was the 1100, inclusion of which dovetail nicely w/ the text.

So despite being sold as a new the actual contents of the Performance is nearing two decades old: is more than the span of it claims to cover! Accordingly, can only be of historical interest to of the late-model LeMans mk V [which never existed in factory it is a shorthand created by fans of the to differentiate between the original mk IV Le and the later special editions, were fundamentally the same as the mk IV, but had detail differences.]
