Superbike: An Illustrated Early History, written by Kevin Cameron with photography by John Owens, grew in part from a black-and-white photo essay published 35 years ago in American motorcycle magazine Cycle.

The Look of Speed featured Owens’ thought-provoking images of Yoshimura Research and Development of America founder Hideo “Pops” Yoshimura and former magazine editor and 1977 Daytona Superbike race-winner Cook Neilson, among other tuners and riders.

The photos published in this book were taken at tracks that populated the American road-racing scene at that time: Daytona International Speedway, Bryar Motorsports Park, Laguna Seca Raceway, Pocono International Raceway and Road America.

“The desire to go fast, brake, turn and accelerate isn’t that complicated,” Cameron writes. Yet this book clearly illustrates and uniquely explains the countless challenges that manufacturers, teams and riders faced attempting to accomplish those goals.
