With a one-person support team, beginning in 1947 Pete Hill dedicated himself to taking on all comers on the drag strip, no matter the make or model. Without any corporate support, the teenaged South Carolina native hammered his relic, blown, fuel-burning Knucklehead and went on to win the International Drag Bike Association title along with the AMA Dragbike Top Fuel title on his highly modified ’47. That was backed up with four more IDBA titles and four titles with the American Motorcycle Racing Association. The book Pete Hill, A Legend on Two Wheels, was penned by his one-person pit crew, wife Jackie Hill, and reveals all the ups and downs of her late husband’s passion for the track and reinforces that Pete Hill was the real deal. At 304 pages and containing more than 200 photos, whether you are a fan of two-wheel drag racing, a motorcycle history buff or just a Harley gearhead, this $27.95 book needs to find a home in your library.
