Hi guys,

I have a question about this book: http://www.amazon.co.uk/MotoGP-Technology-Neil-Spalding/dp/1844258343/ref=lh_ni_t?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

Does any of you know if it's any good? Does it have good reference pics? Any information would be great. Thanks.

Best regards,
Lesley

Hi Lesley - I have this book - and yes there are some great photos for reference, but it is NOT only reference - Spalding writes about the different components of a Moto GP bike - he explains the development of the bikes.
I suggest buy a good used one if you want one so as to minimize your expense, just in case you get disappointed by the pics
Hope this is helpful

I don't have that specific book you are inquiring about. I have built about 5 MotoGP and a couple of choppers. If you are into detailing the motoGPs, I recommend "MotoGP Pit Walk Photo Collection" book. Is sold depending on the year of the motogp you are building and it shows you all the motos that raced in that year. The pictures are of the real motos, not the kit. It is all a reference book but with lots of details showing for example, the engine and other parts in detail and close-ups. But as being the best, is also expensive. Have a great day!

I have the first edition of the book and it has some nice pictures but not that useful as build reference as they are not too in depth on one particular bike.
