Alternative History of Bicycles and Motorcycles : Two-Wheeled Transportation and Material Culture
about this item
This book offers an account of two-wheeled vehicle development that challenges the common evolutionary model of development from the bicycle to the motorcycle. It examines the bicycle and motorcycle as material objects and focuses on the complex socio-political and economic convergences that produced the materials, which in turn shaped the vehicles’ appearance, function, and adoption by riders.
