The Motorcyclist’s Handbook
|Автор:||Charles S. Lake|
It has been said, with truth, that an inherent love of things mechanical finds a more or less definitive place in the character of every Englishman…» So begins The MotorCyclist’s Handbook, a wonderful text from 1911 that describes in detail the operation of early motorcycles. Created by Charles S. Lake columnist for The Model Engineer magazine, the book was an instant classic. Today it is just as readable and in some fashion in even more enjoyable. Lavishly illustrated, the book includes chapters on engines, including two-stroke and four cylinder, compression, carburetor, ignition, transmission, lubrication, accessories, and so on.
