Independent Reviews

This is an easy to read and entertaining book, and is a fitting tribute to a man who, as the title suggests, is largely forgotten.
Old Bike Australasia

There is only enough room to touch on Roger’s moving and comprehensive work here - but believe me, it’s brilliant, with two separate 16-page blocks of glossy black and white photographs separating the words, and I would recommend it to every Old Bike Mart reader.
