Aside from excellent work by the likes of Greg Field and Ian Falloon, most historical books dealing with old European motorcycles are pretty lousy. Thumb through them once, put them on the bookshelf, never to be opened again.

Not this one. Tom Bailey was very active in '60s/'70s moto journalism on the east coast. Ducati Singles is FULL of model information, production history and just plain great stories of Ducati's past, the good and the bad. The book is professionally produced and loaded with photos.

You'll love it!

From the book:

Primitive but sophisticated and elegant, the Ducati singles changed the way Americans thought about lightweight motorcycles. Because of their speed and handling, the basic conception of small bikes changed from that of basic transportation for losers to machines ridden by those who were 'cool'. Success in the American market in the early sixties allowed Ducati to remain in business, but later nearly drove it to bankruptcy. DUCATI SINGLES FIRST PERSON, A Buyer's Guide to Ducati Singles, tells the story of the rise and fall of the beautiful single cylinder bikes from Bologna, written by an individual who was working at a Ducati dealership, racing the bikes and writing about them for various motorcycle magazines during the sixties and early seventies. It is required reading for anyone interested in Ducatis.
