Descrizione libro The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. From about 1910 to the mid-1920s, the cyclecar was a popular means of transport. Cheap, simply engineered, often crude, it was really just a motorcycle engine with a lightweight chassis and body (the cyclecar/microcar often being the product of cycle and motorcycle technology). It created, however, a new market of people who could now afford a motor car; it was no longer the perserve of the well to do. The simplicity of the cars meant that they could easily be built in small quantities and this led to a growth in the number of motor manufacturers. Some, who graduated to make motor cars, even survive to this day, including probably the most famous British marque - Morgan. It was an international phenomenon with makers in France, the UK, USA and Germany producing cyclecars, albeit for various time-spans. A few makers survived into the thirties, but most had disappeared long before, killed off by the introduction of real cars at low prices, such as the Austin 7 in Britain, the German Dixi and the baby CitroA ns in France. The concept was not to die, however, as the French retained an interest in cyclecars beyond this period and were producing small cars such a as the Mochet throughout the Second World War. After the war s end, there was, again, a large market of people in Europe who could not afford a real war but who did want to own a motor vehicle. The Suez fuel crisis also contributed to an upsurge in interest in what were now called microcars. The principle was the same: simple engineering, often with a motorbike engine. in a small package. Companies such as Heinkel and Messerschmitt produced cars instead of planes. In Britain, companies like Reliant (a survivor from the first period of minimal motoring), Bond and Berkeley all produced lightweight motorcars that were successful for a period in the 1950s. Today, we have an equivalent in the many offerings in Japan, France and Italy. Inside the pages of Minimal Motoring is a selective history of both the cyclecar and microcar, accompanied by period photographs, advertisements and artwork.
