Editorial Reviews

Review

"DK's four Classic Motorcycles mini-volumes...bring the publisher's distinctive detailed illustrations, with copious captions, to the subject in clever pocket-sized hardcover form." -- Chicago Sun-Times

"One of the niftiest new collections...you can never have owned a motorcycle and still appreciate the loving detail in these books." -- Sacramento Bee

"The book's open, attractive layouts featuring good-looking machines make it a good stocking (or saddlebag) stuffer for any easy riders on your holiday gift list." -- Chicago Tribune

From the Inside Flap

Spectacular color photographs show each model in detail. Each part is carefully annotated for in-depth knowledge of the finer points of each bike.The authoritative text gives a brief history of each model, placing it in its social and technical context. Specification boxes give information on engine type, capacity, power output, transmission, weight, and top speed.

Informative and entertaining, BMW is part of a mini-reference library of classic world motorcycles ideal for all enthusiasts.

This little book covers 15 notorcycles including two racing models. Nice quality paper, great pictures but very little info and many,(most), models are not included. Might make a good gift for someone that is only mildly interested in BMW bikes. If your looking for a reference book, look elsewhere.

A little pocket size encyclopedia on BMW motorcycles with pictures and descriptions of the significant models. It is written in the same format as Wilson's The Encyclopedia of the Motorcycle.

Just a thin pocket size handbook of a few BMW models over the years. Thankfully it was a give away price so couldn't complain.

This is a small book at 42 pages and the pages dimensions of 5x3 inches. The information is of good content, but a short 20 minute read. Over priced for the size and depth of information . Buyer beware.
