Various events contrived to bring about the cafe racer era, together with the advent of the rocker - and subsequently mod - cults. New motorcycles such as the BSA Gold Star singles and star twins, Norton Dominator, Royal Enfield Meteor and Constellation, Triumph Tiger 110 and Thunderbird and Velocette Venom created a new breed of enthusiast. Films such as Marlon Brando's The Wild One expressed, albeit in somewhat extreme form, the biker-as-rebel philosophy. Add to this the potency of that biggest of all pop music phenomena, rock'n'roll, and the ingredients were all in place. AUTHOR: Mick Walker set up his own company Mick Walker Motorcycles in 1969, became a leading race sponsor during the 1970s and went on to form Mick Walker Racing in 1994. He was editor of Motorcycle Enthusiast [1983-87]. Mick has also been a successful tuner, coach and team manager. His list of riders includes 2004 World Super Bike champion James Toseland. Mick has written nearly a hundred books. b/w photos throughout
