Classic Superbikes

Classic Superbikes by Frank Melling - Book Front Cover

There are many great books about classic motorcycling which are packed with fascinating technical information and critical dates in a bike’s production life. Classic Superbikes isn’t one of them!

Instead, these are the stories of bikes which keep you awake at night just thinking about them. There are no sensible machines which you buy just because they are good value and spares are easy to find. These are motorcycles which you dream about riding, the best of the best of the best.

You’re never going to find a grown up reason for owning a 1957 Gilera Four but there are plenty of bikes you could have, like Melling’s favourite Mk1 Norton Commando or the fabulous Triumph Street Twin – the bike which always brings a smile to the faces of the Triumph staff who designed it.

Each story is told in Melling’s quirky, original style – peppered with unique anecdotes and oozing enthusiasm for the big, bold bikes he loves so much. You might agree, or disagree, with Melling’s opinions but for sure you will want to read on.


Frank Melling is the best story teller in motorcycling journalism with 26 top-selling books to his name. Opinionated, funny, informative and always entertaining, Melling will keep you turning the pages of Classic Superbikes from beginning to end.
