Green ran a motorcycle shop in Sheffield, starting with a small shop selling Royal Enfields and other British makes for twenty-five years, and importing East German MZ motorcycles for another twenty-two years, beginning in a small shop and retiring from a massive warehouse. The first book in this two-volume autobiography covers the author’s life from around age ten to his marriage in 1937. The second volume “covers the period 1936 to 1990. It includes my Wartime capers, opening my first motorbike shop in 1945, selling used bikes and gradually and labouriously obtaining franchises. Also selling and servicing bikes of all the leading British makers until 1969. I then decided I could no longer keep selling the British crap, so I told the Triumph BSA Group at a meeting in Manchester to stuff ‘em.” Blunt, humorous and engaging, an open account of a dealer, a racer, and a lover.
