Like most bikers, Daniel Peirce – acclaimed international photographer and author of the awesome Veloce book The Fine Art of the Motorcycle Engine – believes that a motorcycle engine is a work of art. Daniel has photographed engines from a wide variety of classic motorbikes, many of which are housed in the historic Barber Museum in the US. As well as being beautiful, Daniel's photos are a worthy reminder of the engineering excellence that goes into making a motorcycle.

New! The Fine Art of the Motorcycle Engine – The Story of the Up-N-Smoke Engine Project
By tradition, the motorcycle is a naked beast, differing from other vehicles by the fact that its mechanical structure is also part of its aesthetic appearance. In The Fine Art of the Motorcycle Engine, photographer Daniel Peirce examines the graphic nature of historic engines with stunning and dramatic photography. Since the beginning of the motorbike, engine designers knew they had to design power plants that performed well and looked good. Peirce presents 64 stunning pictures from his popular UP-N-SMOKE Engine Project. In addition to his engine photography, the book also includes the story of the project and the years it took to take it from an inspired idea to a tangible reality.
