Ever since the original appearance of their first single-cylinder engine, followed by their twin cylinders, the Harley-Davidson has distinguished itself by imposing its models, owing to their trustworthiness and endurance, and then because of how many competitions they won. The new Harley-Davidsons have become motorcycles offering modern performances, but which have succeeded in conserving the spirit of the brand and, above all, that special Harley-Davidson character. All you need to do is climb into the saddle and rev up a Harley-Davidson to discover a new motorcycling universe, where the concept of pleasure reveals its full meaning. And this is the universe that this book invites you to discover, through the history of the brand's main models, embodying nearly 110 years of motorcycling adventures, touching upon tourism, sport, customization, and the simple and outright passion for motorcycles.
Prior to 1999 Audi did not have a sportscar in its range, let alone having ever raced one. But between 2000 and 2006 the Audi R8 won 63 of the 80 races in which it competed - including five out of six Le Mans 24-hours - making it the most successful long-distance racing car of all time. The latest in Veloce's WSC Giants series, this book charts those races and describes the development of the R8, as well as profiling the 35 drivers who raced it between 2000 and 2006. It also includes the story of the Audi R8R and R8C of 1999. Illustrated in colour throughout with many previously unpublished photos, the book features individual chassis details and results, plus observations from significant individuals - engineers, team managers, drivers etc - concerned with the Audi R8. By the time the R8 was replaced by the diesel R10, it had revolutionised the marque's image, helping to change it from a staid, but worthy, saloon car manufacturer to one of the world's leading premium car producers.
The London & Birmingham Railway was the first major line in Britain and it was the greatest achievement of its engineer, Robert Stephenson, the man who, together with his father George, had set the age of the railway in motion with their pioneering achievements. The route presented a number of significant challenges, starting with the Camden Incline leading out of Euston up to the Primrose Hill Tunnel, followed by a number of other works including the Watford Tunnel, the Tring Cutting, Wolverton Viaduct and the notoriously troublesome Kilsby Tunnel. It is the first section of today's West Coast Main Line. `Seldom has the gigantic intellect of man been employed upon a work of greater utility.' Punch, in praise of Bradshaw's publications. Bradshaw's guide was published in 1863, not that long after most of the railway network had been completed. It gives the reader a unique insight into the world of the Victorian railways and goes beyond the engineering aspects to record the sights to be seen in the towns and cities encountered along the way. John and Jay Christopher present Bradshaw's original text accompanied by contemporary images and many new colour photographs of the same journey today.
Critically acclaimed author Kevin Turner (Bonjour! Is This Italy? A Hapless Biker's Guide to Europe) heads off on another ill-thought out adventure, aiming his heavily laden Kawasaki north towards the towering waterfalls of Norway, before heading east on a long and treacherous journey to Moscow. This fascinating adventure - part sprint, part marathon - charts the perils, pitfalls and thrills of a 6000 mile solo motorcycle journey across Europe, Scandinavia and into Asia. The author's observations and anecdotes transform this motorcycle guidebook into a laugh-a-minute page turner, which inspires and entertains in equal measure.
Based in Renfrewshire, Clydeside Scottish was a member of the Scottish Bus Group and was created from the northern part of Western SMT's area. Covering the Clyde coast from Largs in Ayrshire into Renfrewshire and Glasgow, its distinctive yellow and red buses numbered some 330 on formation of the company in 1985. Soon, the company was operating in Glasgow against Strathclyde Buses, with a fleet of ex-London Routemasters. In 1991, the company became Clydeside 2000, when privatised. Eventually becoming a part of Arriva Buses, the company was disposed of in 2011. The name has gone but Clydeside Scottish left a legacy in the local area, and four buses are currently preserved in the distinctive red and yellow.

The McKindless bus company started off as a small operation of a few buses, a lorry and two coaches in 1987, and traded under the name of Chartered Coaches. Its aim was to provide school contracts and private hires, but it quickly moved into local bus operation, spurred on by the problems suffered by its larger neighbour Central Scottish. The company would sell its services to Kelvin Central Buses in 1992, but restart again on a larger scale. The company ceased operation of its services abruptly at 19.00 hours on Friday 19 February 2010. Many employees were not notified that the company was about to close, only discovering this when their shifts ended. With a fascinating array of previously unpublished photographs, this is the story of a family business that got out of its depth.

Porsche's sporting elite - the 911 R - more performance, less weight. As the first comprehensive homage to the R and RS models, this is a must-have for all Porsche 911 lovers. At auctions they rack up premium prices, but the makers of the 911 R never intended to create objects of speculation for maximum profit. Their main concern was developing vehicles that would appeal to customers because of their uncompromising sportiness. The story begins 50 years ago, when the first Porsche 911 R achieved five new long-distance world records in Monza; and goes on to the latest 911 R - a car that is aware of its history, with racing stripes, houndstooth bucket seats, manual gear change, and a free-revving naturally aspirated engine. In between the first and the latest lie 50 years, numerous models, and a legion of fans.

During the nineteenth century, Birmingham grew rapidly, becoming the second largest population centre in England. Tramways were introduced to the city as a more efficient way of transporting this large population. Although the first trams were horse-drawn, more efficient power sources were developed and in this book, David Harvey shows us three which were employed by the City of Birmingham Tramways Company between 1896 and 31 December 1911, following which the company was absorbed by Birmingham Corporation Tramways. City of Birmingham ran routes using steam trams, cable trams (such as are still used in San Francisco today) and battery-powered accumulator trams until these were swept away by the considerably more efficient electric trams which we remember today, their power supplied through overhead cables. In this wonderful collection of period images, David Harvey shows us Birmingham, Britain's Second City, through its public transport as the nineteenth century turned into the twentieth. This is a vivid look at the architecture and technology of Victorian and Edwardian Britain at its height.

1952 was one of the most important years in Mercedes-Benz racing history; after a 13-year absence, it returned to motor sport competition with an automobile that rewrote the history of modern sports car racing. The 300 SL's debut was the culmination of a long, difficult road back to racing for Mercedes-Benz after a 13 year break. This book vividly depicts the 300 SL's performance in the five races in which it competed in 1952, and tells the story of how it became the most successful competition sports car of that year. Through dramatic photographs, and equally stirring text, one of the greatest years of sports car racing is brought to life, filled with automobiles often finished in national racing colours, prepared by great factory teams, driven by men who were national sporting idols, and raced under gruelling conditions unique to the age. From its Mille Miglia debut, through the Nurburgring, the Le Mans 24 Hours, to its greatest race, the Carrera Panamericana, the 300 SL's career from conception to retirement is presented, culminating with a detailed photographic essay illustrating restoration of the oldest 300 SL in existence.
The first Buell motorcycle, the RW750, was built in 1985 purely for competing in the AMA Formula 1 motorcycle road racing championship. Buell later turned his focus towards racing-inspired, street-going machines using engines manufactured by Harley who, in 1998, purchased majority control of Buell and has been a subsidiary since that time. Buell engines - which are modified Harley Davidson Sportster engines - are designed to be street-friendly both in fuel efficiency and power. They are also simple and easy to maintain. Erik Buell brought flair and innovation to both his racing and street going machines.
