Norton Villiers Triumph - Viable proposition, or a house of cards?

Some of you will be familiar with Brad Jones previous work including:
  • OIF B25 /B50 Incomplete Guide
  • BSA Motorcycles - The Final Evolution
  • From the inside - BSA / Triumph's Umberslade Hall Research Establishment Revealed
Brad has now published another book entitled:

Norton Villiers Triumph - Viable proposition, or a house of cards?

The rear cover page sums up the contents well:
The story of Norton Villiers Triumph company which embraces the initial take-over of BSA's motorcycle division, the subsequent battle with the trade unions for control and ownership of Triumph's factory at Meriden, followed by the subsequent refusal of the government of the day to honour the promised funding. Along the way the motorcycles that also make up the NVT story are encountered, as is a year by year account of the John Player Norton racing effort.
There's a lot of information in the book that takes a while to digest but it's worth persevering. Personally I couldn't put the book down.

There are a couple of chapters that will be of particular interest to B50ers namely 'Speedway B50' and the 'Isolastic B50'.

If you liked Brad's previous work then you need to add this one to your library :thumb

You can get hold of the book via Brad's website or ebay
