Celebrate the 80th anniversary of the engine that changed the motorcycle world. Motorcycle technology lagged far behind automotive technology since the earliest days of the internal-combustion engine. All that changed in 1936 when Harley-Davidson introduced the Model EL. For the first time ever, a company was manufacturing a high-performance overhead-valve engine for the masses. And what an engine it was -- in addition to bringing state-of-the-art technology to the motorcycling world -- a work of art. Because of the shape of its rocker covers, the engine was given a nickname to match its looks: the Knucklehead. The technology used in this engine was so advanced that it laid the foundation for every future Harley-Davidson motorcycle, including the current models built in the 21st century. To this day every cruiser style motorcycle still adheres to the shape of that original Knucklehead. Harley-Davidson Knucklehead: Eighty Years tells the entire Knucklehead story, from the very first overhead-valve V-twin Harley produced for the public through the post-war models, continuing right up until today, when aftermarket manufacturers reproduce complete Knucklehead crate engines because of its continuing popularity.

The Messerschmitt Bf 110 entered war service on 1st September 1939 with the 'C-1' variant. By the end of 1940, by which time the type had fought in the Polish campaign, the various campaign on the European mainland, and the Battle of Britain, it had gone though various changes and roles, and had developed as far as the 'E' variant. Authors John Vasco and Fernando Estanislau have already done comprehensive work on the many variants of the Bf 110 prior to undertaking this new project, and have brought their extensive knowledge of the aircraft to bear on producing this work on the 'C', 'D' and 'E' variants.The book shows the changes within each variant, starting with a lead-in detailing the changes from the pre-war 'B' variant to the 'C'.The many sub-variants of the 'C' are detailed, and the 'D' variant covers the 'Dackelbauch' long range fighter version and the 'D-3' variant which sought to provide extra range by way of auxiliary fuel tanks under the wings rather than the cumbersome 'Dackelbauch'. The 'E' shows the move to the provision of heating in the cockpit for the crew, as well as the 'E' reconnaissance version and the rarely seen Bf 110 Cs and Es that were converted for duties towing the large Luftwaffe gliders. As well as using well-known photographs to illustrate the many facets of the design and development of the aircraft, the authors have also been able to call upon many previously unpublished photographs. Fernando Estanislau's excellent artwork considerably enhances the work. This book is a feast for the Luftwaffe enthusiast, and with the recent introduction of new Bf 110 plastic model kits, it is a 'must-have' for the aviation modeller seeking to identify the exact details of any sub-variant from the 'C' to the 'E'.

It’s no wonder descriptions of riding often resemble the words of Asian mystics and Jedi knights: The ride causes your senses to open completely. You experience only the present, the now. Readers who prefer revving a Harley to meditating in a Zen garden know that biking is just as contemplative as chanting in the lotus position. Here, philosopher-bikers explore this seeming dichotomy, expounding on intriguing questions such as: Why are the motorcycles the real stars of Easy Rider? What would Marx and Foucault say about Harley riders’ tight leather garb? What’s it like to live a dual life as a philosophy professor who wrenches his own 1965 Electra Glide? Would Jesus hang out in a biker bar or a coffeehouse? And more importantly, would He ride a Harley or a Honda? These witty, provocative essays give readers and riders a new appreciation of what it means to become one with the road.

Harley-Davidson: words that evoke the open American road and the 'Made in America' tradition like no others. The sweeping chopper handlebars, the distinctive throaty 'potato potato' roar of the engine and the unmistakable logo are all emblems recognized the world over. This book expertly ties together the mechanical evolution of the Harley's engines ? from the earliest motorized pedal bicycles to the iconic heavyweight twin cylinder V-engines we know and love today ? and the social history of the brand's phenomenal rise in the twentieth century, as innovative survivor of the Great Depression, supplier of the military during both World Wars and enduring symbol of freedom and rebellion in movies such as 'Easy Rider'. It is fully illustrated with pictures of the bikes and those who have ridden them as well as beautiful examples of H-D's distinctive design aesthetic in advertising and collectibles.
