Thunderbolts & Lightning, Peter Crawford

Post by SteveS »

I recently purchased a copy of 'Thunderbolts & Lightning - Vol I - The Road Bikes' by Peter Crawford as I run a brace of A65's as well as B50's.

It's a very well put together book with many contributions from the people who worked at BSA at the time. I've found it a great accompaniment to Brad Jones's book 'The Final Evolution'.

It's sad / frustrating read at times, as once again it is very apparent that senior management had lost direction and understanding of the business they were in. It's a well researched book which includes a lot of detail I have not seen before. A lot of the info about the period around 70-71 when the Power Set range was being put together is also relevant to the B50 etc.

Lots of detail, info and reminiscences, a recommended read :thumb

Book available from Wideline
