Podkowa 98 Polish Motorcycle Book

Podkowa 98 Polish motorbike Villiers James Baker
Podkowa z hacelami
This new softback book with Polish text on the Podkowa 98 motorbike, was published in Poland in 2005. The book has 104 pages and 42 b/w photos plus 16 in colour.
The book looks at the Polish-built Podkowa 98 motorbike, introduced in 1939 and powered by a Villiers 9D engine. I believe the Podkowa was made under licence, and was based on the English Baker motorcycle. The same model was later produced as the James ML.
