BMW Airhead Twins – The Complete Story

by Phil West

When the publishers first told me there was yet another book on BMW airheads coming out, my first thought was: ‘ Oh great, another book on BMWs no one wants’. There’s just too many.

However, I was wrong. You see I knew this one was worth a read, as I had the pleasure of working with the author, Phil West, years ago and, while often aloof or downright miserable-looking, Phil always knew his facts and always researched his features thoroughly.

If you like BMWs or the story behind this fascinating company, it’s a great read.

I only really like the R100RS, but the prewar racers, its near collapse and the way the company tended to look at things differently means this is a very interesting read, and well worth the £25.
