Rockers! celebrates the biker style with panache and wit, showing how a love affair between bikes and speed became the original touchstone of a youth cult which continues to fascinate and endure, with its myths, magic and melancholy. In essence, and although they did not know it, rockers – with their raw edginess, studied cool and search for excitement, sex and violence – were icons. Rockers! achieves that rare marriage of immediacy and knowledge, through research and first-hand experience.

About the Author
When not burning up the tracks on his 1959 Tiger 110, Johnny Stuart was a consultant expert on Byzantine and Russian Art at Sotheby's. His education (Eton and Cambridge followed by Perugia University and Moscow's Central School Of Art) if not exactly conventional, gave no hint of his extraordinary passion for bikes and the rocker world. He got his first bike (a Royal Enfield) at 16, when the cult was at its height, and amassed a collection of bikes which included classic Triumphs and Nortons.
