This book, The Seanachie of Motorcycling, is a collection of tales from a master story teller, Harry Lindsay of Dublin. Described in his youth by his headmaster as the boy with oil in his veins", Harry grew up with motorcycles, becoming a trials and road racer, a grass track champion, holder of the Irish land speed record, racing team leader, an importer and retailer of motorcycles, a restorer of antique bikes and an historian along the way. Many of his stories bring to life the characters and heroes that were the racing world from the thirties through the turn of the last century. They offer a rare glimpse of life behind the scenes and more than one tale is told with a twinkle in his eye. This, then, is an Irishman's view of the world as it was. Pour a pint of Guinness, put your feet up and be prepared to enjoy the Seanachie's tales and learn and laugh with him. Seanachie (pronounced sha-nah-key): Irish for master story teller in the great tradition of orally passing folklore and history on down through the generations.
