The 260 B&W photos should be fine. Most of HD's stuff (black and chrome) can be easily represented.

As far as coffee table books go, the ultimate for me would be one written by someone who was involved in the Japanese end of the industry from the 60's through the 80's. I think it would be cool to hear some of the behind-the-scenes stories on bikes like the Yamaha XS Specials, the TZ700/750 street bike(killed by the EPA), Suzuki RE-5, Kawasaki H1 and H2, etc. I'd rather have that any day of the week than another H-D coffee table book.

One could build a coffee table out of HD coffee table books, or how about a motorcycle?

Default Ouch!

Dang, Tiger, let the Madura die a gentle, deserved death, would ya?



I hope that the people at Suzuki wince whenever they hear the word "Madura" (is madura a word?).



I'd like to hear the discussion revolving around naming the Suzuki "Tempter". Did they actually pay someone to come up with that?

If you want a good motorcycle book, buy, beg, borrow or steal Superbikes of the Seventies by Roland Brown

It covers all the great European and Japanese bikes of that era, including the HD XLCR. All the great bikes we lusted after as kids for us boomers and some history about where we came from for young sportbike fans.

I'm serious, you NEED this book !
