Want to reminisce? Want to read about the bikes you or your dad used to have? If you pick up Vintage Dirt Bikes Enthusiast’s Guide you’re set for a weekend of coulda/shouldas and couch time. This books breaks down most of the bikes you’ve heard about and quite a few that I, at least, hadn’t.

The book takes each bike and breaks it down to a description of what is did, when it did it and all specs necessary for you to sound like you kniow what you’re talking about. Not saying you don’t, but it always is good to have backup if questioned!

For instance: take a 1967 Zundapp 100 ISDT. Great photos, short history and specs show a 3.3 gallon fuel tank, 186 pound dry weight and 32 inch seat height. It could be licensed for street riding, started easily and had bright red paint with silver offsets. Zundapp became a brand in 1917 and continued on through at least 1973.

If Zundapp doesn’t grab your interest; there are lots of pics and stories about Hondas (have 2), BSAs (have 1-in a box), Triumphs and OSSAs. Even if you only had one of the bikes listed, this book has specs you will enjoy reading and will make you sound like a pro at your next ride! ( )

This is a very nice book that is so perfectly balanced with both information and nice pictures. It would make a perfect gift for the bike enthusiast in your life. My son and husband have very much enjoyed flipping through the pages of this book. I could see both older children and adults enjoying this book. ( )
