Full colour photographic catalogue of a top selection of motorbikes from the acclaimed MC Collection in Stockholm.
From the 1913 Indian Board Track Racer to the 2014 JPS Norton Replica, World's Best Motorcycles celebrates 22 historic and significant bikes of the past century.
World’s Best Motorcycles showcases a selection of just some of the 400 extraordinary machines that make up the MC Collection in Stockholm, providing a unique viewpoint on the history of technical innovation and progress in two-wheeled design. The MC Collection represents over 50 years of private collecting by Christer R Christensson, and the work of his colleague, Ove Johansson, and his highly-skilled team of restorers, to bring together an extensive catalogue of the very best of motorcycle design and technology. The MC Collection is intended to present the motorcycle as mechanical sculpture and honour all motorcycle design engineers from the very first motorcycle produced, the Hilderbrand & Wolfmueller of 1894, to the state-of-the-art machines of today.
