About this title


Mike Sutcliffe has devoted the last thirty years to the rescue and restoration of several, now famous, examples of the early Leyland motorbus. The Mike Sutcliffe Collection is one of the most important collections of early buses in the world and thousands of enthusiasts are aware of his magnificent achievements. This book tells the story of the man and his buses, from the 1908 Leyland X-type, the oldest restored British-built motorbus in the world, to the unique London Pirate 'Chocolate Express' of 1925. The Leyland Man will be irresistible to anyone with an interest in Leyland, the early bus, and to anyone who has seen one of Mike's amazing restorations.
