Born and bred in post-Second World War East London, former motorcycle speedway rider Alf Hagon began his career with battered scrapyard rejects, utilising still-to-be-cleared bombsites as his training grounds. Alf found he had a talent for engineering and machine development, and manufactured off-road competition frames, forks and other components. His talent has since made him known for his well-respected suspension company, Hagon Shocks, now popular across the globe.
Following the 60th anniversary of Hagon Shocks, this book celebrates the life and career of the company’s founder and record-setting Grasstrack motorcycle rider.
