In the late 1920s & 30s, young Dick Atkins, a farmer's son, is far more interested in motorcycles that the horses and cattle around him, so he and his pals get involved in local club trials, girls and then even national competition. Things don't always go as planned of course and soon a Morgan 3-wheeler, a wife and then the war all come along.

3 John Bradshaw & Peter Henshaw The Artful Bodger
2012 0956640346 / 9780956640345 Paperback New Book 
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.

Malvern England JRB Publishing 2010 0956640311 / 9780956640314 Revised 211 Paperback New JRB 
John Bradshaw grew up surrounded by mechanical things and has not escaped so far. He has always owned wheels and currently has a stable ranging from an 1880s Cogent Ordinary bicycle to a 1990s BMW Z3 sports car, with examples of many things in between. He was the Chairman of the Ariel Owners MotorCycle Club and then started and ran CycleFest, an international alternative cycle event. He has written for a variety of cycling and motoring magazines. Restoration, modification and maintenance of cycles, motorcycles, cars and washing machines is nothing new to him, but the Morgan-Ariel Special is his first true creation.
