In this well established book, now brought up to date in a second edition, the Technical Editor of `Performance Bikes' shows you how to evaluate your engine, how to assess what work you can undertake yourself, and what is best left to a specialist. The great attraction of the two-stroke is its enormous potential, contrasted with its appealing simplicity. Armed with little more than a set of files, you can make profound changes to the output power of a two-stroke. But these changes will increase the power only if you know what you are doing. `Motor Cycle Tuning (Two-stroke)' will therefore guide you through the necessary stages which can enable a stock roadster engine can be turned into a machine capable of winning open-class races, for an outlay which is positively low by racing standards. Very few other books on engine development and most of these are either devoted to car engines or are out of date Promoted by PERFORMANCE BIKES

This book introduces one of the great photographers of our century, Emil Mayer, a turn-of-the-century Viennese street photographer whose prints were largely destroyed by the Gestapo after his suicide in 1938 Viennese Types is Mayer's surviving masterwork, a recently discovered portfolio of original prints that is published here for the first time. It is by any measure one of the most extraordinary collections in the literature of photography -- lyrical, meditative, and deeply moving. Rudolf Arnheim, in the foreword to the book, calls Mayer 'an intimate master.' Others have compared his work to that of Henri Cartier-Bresson. But as Mayer's photographs were taken in the early years of the century, long before those of Cartier-Bresson and other street photographers, this collection is like nothing ever seen before: it is a window on a vanished age, seen through modern eyes. Designed by Carl Zahn, this is a book of truly exquisite beauty.
