[Veloce Books] Now Available! Motorcycles, Mates and Memories – Recalling sixty years of fun in British motorcycle sport








Lotus Elan and Plus 2 Source Book



Motorcycling social history, as seen from the saddle.
Bill Snelling’s entertaining autobiography, recounting a lifetime spent at the heart of British motorcycle sport, and living on the Isle of Man.





Bill Snelling reflects on his lifetime passion for two-wheeling in this entertaining, motorcycle-themed autobiography. He recalls the decades of motorcycling mayhem, mud and madness that have characterised his 70-odd years living the dream, from the early days at Arthur Lavington’s Velo shop to pounding the long-distance trials and the many race circuits he has ridden. 





Bill admits he was better off-road than on tarmac, but he did win one race! He went on to work for Motorcycle Sport magazine, and as a dispatch rider, before moving permanently to the Isle of Man.
