About the Author

Keith Noakes has a lifetime's love of motorcycles and has owned and restored road racing machines, vintage speedway machines and various off-road examples. Although he no longer rides them, Keith maintains his love and enthusiasm of motorcycles. A large part of his working life has been involved in composite engineering, working in research and development for a large company that was one of the earliest suppliers of carbon and other fibres in various forms for structural applications. It was shortly after the introduction of this technology to Formula One car racing that it was, unsurprisingly, adopted by some motorcycle designers, particularly the innovators in the independent chassis manufacturing companies. Keith's involvement with these designers brought him closer to the cutting-edge developments, and led to him discovering a wide range of highly appealing machines from the many independent manufacturers. The creativity and innovation of these designers, and the success of their machines, inspired Keith to write this book.
