British & World Motorcycles
For many years Britain was at the forefront of global motorcycle manufacturing. However, the 1950s saw the introduction of Japanese motorcycles which were not only cheaper and more stylish, but were more modern, reliable and appealed to the younger buyer. Sadly, by the early 1970s British motorcycle manufacturing had dwindled to almost nothing.
The legacy of British motorcycle manufacturing cannot be contested though and there remains a huge following and fondness for the great British motorcycle.
