European Motorcycles

Fran├žois-Marie Dumas

Vintage & Classic French Motos - Images from Museums, Racetracks and Private Collections of Europe

Moto Passion directed by Fran├žois-Marie Dumas brings together nearly two thousand photographs with a comprehensive history of the machines presented.

  • "This unique material, which is probably the most comprehensive encyclopedia ever written on the history of the motorcycle, was conducted with the assistance of many specialists - Ganneau Didier, Christophe Gaime, Mick Woollett, Jean Goyard, Bernard Salvat, Christian Rey, Yves Campion, Helmut Krackowizer, Michael Dregni, Michel Montange - and others."

Many Belgian and French marques are represented - New-Map and Gillet-Herstal (15 or 20 pages) for instance. There is also a blog which to which many interesting posts are added on a fairly frequent basis, example below. (The English text is a precis, the original is in French).
