Amazing book, great pictures, a must have

British 250cc Motorcycles 1946 to 1959: an era of ingenious innovation
By Chris Pereira


Traces the history and development of the privately built British 250cc ‘specials’ and ‘hybrids’ that sustained this class of Road racing in Britain from 1946 to 1959.


Synopsis
From 1946 up to 1959, the 250cc class in Britain was supported almost entirely by privately built Specials and Hybrids. This book recalls the men and machines involved, and traces their history and development, in what was clearly the most technically innovative class of Road Racing in the 1950s.
