Description

Successful in motorsports, "Leaf" was an innovative company, but a lack of regard for good business principles led to fluctuating fortunes throughout the company's long life. The Lea-Francis Story tells the story of the firm.

Synopsis

Founded in 1895 under the aegis of R.H. Lea, the company originally built cycles and motorcycles, but, by the 1920s, was established as a manufacturer of high quality sporting cars. From the 1930s to the 1960s, Lea-Francis specialised in medium-sized cars built with care and the best quality components. Successful in motorsports, "Leaf" was an innovative company, but a lack of regard for good business principles led to fluctuating fortunes throughout the company's long life. In The Lea-Francis Story, Barrie Price tells the complete story of the firm.

Independent Reviews

A superbly thorough history by the man who has kept the company name alive for half a century.
