You Can't Wear Out An Indian Scout (Revised 2016 Edition)
 

This 2016 revised edition includes a number of new pictures and updated content from the original 2010 edition. Crucially, it includes behind the scenes material from Guy Martin's attempt to set a new world record on the wall in 2016. Indeed, Guy Martin has included a quote for the cover of the book: 'This book is a must for all those who've seen and enjoyed the Wall of Death over the years and want to find out more about the motorcycle of choice for the Wall rider.'

Quotes from the first edition of the book include:

"With exhaustive research and evocative photography, this book is an insight into a particular slice of motorcycle history.  There are no better experts than Allan Ford and Nick Corble to take Indian fans on this unique journey."  MCN Dec 2009

"Many informative sections on how to keep an Indian Scout going and why it's so popular with Wall riders." 
Old Bike Mart Feb 2010

"Lavishly illustrated ... a fascinating insight into the history of the Indian Motorcycle and the Wall of Death and the ideal companion to 'Riding the Wall of Death" 
World's Fair Feb 2010
