The Story
Dubbed as, The Motorcycling Olympics, the International Six Days Trial was held in Austria just before the start of the Second World War. It was where the creme de la creme of Motorcycling, from many nations competed in six days of hard riding. The story tells how the British competitors and spectators were told to get out and go home by the British Embassy. They successfully made it from occupied Austria, through Switzerland with the help of their German Escorts. 
The very next month Britain declared war on Germany

A disparate collection of desperate tales of woe, and occasional subsequent joy.   It's actually a totally useless book, but comprised of true accounts of survived disasters collected over many years of attending Rallies, Treffens, Noggins and Trials around the world.  But none of the very varied accounts to be found within are urban myths. They are not regurgitations of what my friend says his brother heard that a bloke in the pub did once. Almost all the tales were told to one of the editors directly.

 Classic vehicles and similar devices inspire many and varied bodges in order to keep them going and this new book is firmly based in the scene wherein the user/driver/rider/owner/victim is still able to have some control over his/her machinery. These are not useful hints & tips, but are celebrations of eccentric ingenuity.  An applause for stuff that was, and occasionally still is, user-servicable - and a protest against designed disposability.

It is well illustrated, but also contains grumpy old men's ruminations and some amateur philosophy.


  An ideal book for Dad to keep in the loo.
