mz, the racers, the book by jan leek, originally published in 1991 by 650 publications, the story of walter kaaden, the father of the modern racing two-stroke, his secrets stolen by ernst degner and sold to the rival suzuki factory when degner defected  to escape the repressive east german regime and start a new life with his family in the west, the book is as rare as the proverbial rocking horse excrement, even rarer than dangerous getting a round in, yep, that rare, i've been after a copy for about four years now and still not managed to track one down, imagine my delight when i found out that squire neil from the comecon collection blog had spotted a copy on ebay and got a virtually new copy for peanuts............
