About the Author

Colin got his first motorcycle at age 15 and has owned, built, and cried over, mostly British bikes ever since. He currently looks after a 1949 BSA Gold Star, as well as a modern bike. Colin spent a long career in social work in the West of Scotland through which he was a successful textbook author. In recent years motorcycle trips to Eastern Europe have triggered an interest in the utilitarian machines produced there during the Communist years. He has always been interested in the history of the Soviet Union, and this book brings several of his passions together.


The author has produced a very readable book giving a genuine insight into life on two wheels in the Soviet Union, which I enjoyed and recommend. Torque. Highly recommended!--Ian Kerr. This is a fascinating insight into the lives of ordinary citizens in the USSR ... A well researched and very interesting book.--Jonathan Hill - freelance
