Dream Rides: The most spectacular bikes on the planet. From the 1894 Hildebrand & Wolfm ller to the 2020 Aston Martin AMB 001, this book lavishly explores 50 of the most desirable motorcycles to have ever sped thrillingly around a circuit or along an open road. From pioneering record-breakers, luxury tourers, and legendary roadracers to GP-winning machines, iconic superbikes, and exotic customs, this book celebrates motorcycle design and engineering at its highest level. Many examples are from acclaimed private collections and very rarely seen. Others are the all-out stars of renowned motorcycle museums--such as the 1938 Brough Superior "Golden Dream" or the 1957 MV Agusta 500 4C, which took John Surtees to World Championship glory. Alongside some early survivors in astonishingly original condition is a stable of fabled racers--the actual machines that were competed on by the likes of Tarquinio Provini, Mike Hailwood, Giacomo Agostini, and Barry Sheene.

The fascinating stories behind these fabulous motorbikes are expertly recounted in detail, alongside stunning imagery specially taken for the book by the world's leading motorcycle photographers. Also included are rare archival gems, from early posters to remarkable action shots.

A cornucopia of motorcycle treasures and an absolute must-have for all bike enthusiasts
