Product description

This is the amazing story of how Yamaha claimed World Championship glory for four years in a row, with action-packed archive race footage, behind-the-scenes access and contributions from the racing stars delivering the story behind the headline-grabbing triumphs. Enjoy dramatic race action from legendary circuits like Assen, Le Mans, Silverstone, Spa and more as the greats of motorcycle racing, including Kenny Roberts, Barry Sheene, Giacomo Agostini, Johnny Cecetto and Randy Mamola, do elbow-to-elbow battle for World Championship honours. The first of these unique films follows the fortunes of American Steve Baker in his first season of World Championship racing.

With exceptional footage from 500cc and 750cc races of 1977, plus interviews with Baker and other stars of the season, we discover how the rookie claimed a World Championship at his first attempt, and was only beaten to the 500cc crown by the mercurial Sheene. In the next three films we relive one of the most amazing eras of motorcycle Grand Prix racing, the reign of King Kenny. Roberts burst onto the 500cc GP scene in 1978 and proved unstoppable, taking the title not only in his first season, but in 1979 and 1980 as well. He made it look easy, but as these extraordinary films remind us, the American superstar had to battle with the very best all the way to secure his hard-earned World Championship victories. The down-to-the-wire title chases of 1978 and 1980 are exceptional edge-of-the-seat viewing, and the 1979 British Grand Prix is rightly regarded as one of the greatest motorcycle showdowns ever the incredible footage on this DVD shows exactly why.

We are also treated to rare on-board footage with Roberts, contributions from experts like Kel Carruthers and the story of Christian Sarron s assault on the 750cc title in 1979. Yamaha World Champions 1977-1980 is more than a simple racing review; unparalleled access to the riders and team members ensures you discover the stories behind the headlines, and how history was made.

The Motolegends Lowest Price Guarantee

If you can find anything that we sell being offered for more than £5 less than our price, we’ll beat that price by a full 10%.

Let’s give you an example. Say we have a helmet on our website for £350. You find a competitor selling it for £300. Well, if you can prove it, we’ll sell it to you for £270.

It’s that simple, and we reckon it’s the best lowest price guarantee ever.

All you need to do is to provide proof of the lower price. That can be an eBay listing, a website page, or an advertisement in the press. The seller has got to be in the UK and, of course, the goods have to be brand new in the original packaging and so on. We won’t accept, as you might expect, camera phone pictures of an in-store price, or accounts of a conversation that was had with a sales person. The prices we’re beating have to be documented and traceable.

But really that’s it. Phone us with details of the dealer who is discounting. Or send us an email, and we’re in business. So now, there’s never any need to buy from anybody else.

Buy from Motolegends and you will enjoy the industry’s very best service, the very best, most technical and most stylish products. And now the very best prices too.

Oh, and just for good measure, we’ll honour this lowest price guarantee for a full 14 days from the date we despatch your goods to you. A no brainer? We reckon so!
