Grand National

America’s Golden Age Of Motorcycle Racing
Year Published: 2004
Author: Joe Scalzo

Joe Scalzo, a survivor of the lost Grand National culture, colorfully recaptures the golden era of American motorcycle life, when racing wasn’t a business but a lifestyle.

 Grand National covers the series’ early days in the 1950s, the heydays of the 1960s, the high-end bikes of the 1970s, and the changes that brought Grand National into the twenty-first century. Scalzo’s firsthand stories, along with two-hundred photos, capture the bikes, the characters, and the races that made Grand National fast, roughhouse, and a little crazy-both on and off the track.
