Cafe Racers; Rockers, Rock 'n' Roll, and the Coffee-Bar Cult
by Mike Clay
An enthralling history of the days of the ton-up boys who, dressed in studded leathers, often raced their much-modified machinery on the public streets, and sometimes paid a high price. The book includes stills from movies and photographs from private collections and newspapers illustrating the days of the rocker, and helps to explain why the era has generated a cult following in the 90's - and beyond.

Run for the Wall : Remembering Vietnam on a Motorcycle Pilgrimage
by Raymond Michalowski, Jill Dubisch
Every May, for more than a decade, motorcyclists have made the "Run for the Wall," a cross-country journey from Southern California to the "Wall," the Vietnam war memorial in Washington, D.C. While the journey's avowed purpose is political - to increase public awareness about those who remain either prisoners of war or missing in action in Southeast Asia - it also serves as a healing pilgrimage for its participants and as a "welcome-home" ritual many veterans feel they never received.
