Description

Racing Classic Motorcycles is the story of a classic motorcycle racer who was fortunate enough to be able to ride many of the best machines from the period, at the highest level, and on many of the most famous road racing courses in the world. There are tales of success, friendships, and the loss of racing pals. Machine preparation and mechanical failures feature heavily, and the story recounts the author's frustrations and joys. Andy Reynolds maintained and built many of the bikes he raced, and ultimately retired from riding to become both a machine scrutineer and a sponsor. All aspects of motorcycle racing are covered in the author's easy-to-read and entertaining narrative, and it is a fascinating read for any motorcycle enthusiast. Come into the world of Classic Racing Motorcycles – but bring your cheque book and medical insurance!
 

The author

Andy Reynolds was born in London in 1948 and attended Grammar School in Harrow. In 1964 he took up an engineering apprenticeship. Deciding to leave industry in 1976, he joined the Hertfordshire Constabulary, serving in the Traffic Department and as a Scenes of Crime Officer. He still lives in Hertfordshire. Between 1976 and 2016 Andy also raced classic bikes, including Aermacchi, Seeley AJS and Matchless, Petty Norton, Manx Norton, BMW, Velocette, Paton, Honda K4, and Norton – JAP on real road and race-track circuits all over the UK and Europe. Andy lapped the TT course at over 100mph in practice for the 2008 Senior Classic Manx Grand Prix, and finished 3rd in the 2009 Senior Classic MGP. Andy was best known for his machine preparation, which brought the reliability that enabled him to finish in all but five of the 39 Isle of Man races that he entered.
