From his childhood in Canada and southern California, to his first motorcycles and racing exploits, to his legendary ISDT run and the classic documentary On Any Sunday, to his Baja and African rally achievements, to his successful businesses and charity work, and to his family and many friends all over the world, Malcolm! An Autobiography is the story of Malcolm Smith.
“It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally time to do it. The timing seems right, too. I just turned 72, I’m slowing down a little, I’m spending more time with my family, and I’ve got more perspective than ever… So here we go! I’m sure you’ll love reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.”
– Malcolm Smith
This large-format (11×11-in.), 300-plus page, hardbound coffee-table book will feature more than simply Malcolm’s life story. In it you’ll find hundreds of photographs from Malcolm’s private archives, many of which have never been seen by the public, let alone published. For the book, Malcolm teamed up with veteran moto-journalist and racer Mitch Boehm, who’s worked at Motorcyclist, Cycle World and American Honda during his career.
Malcolm! An Autobiography is set to release in December, but you can pre-order your copy now. And if you do, you’ll get a very special bonus: Malcolm’s signature. That’s right: Order now at www.TheMalcolmBook.com and Malcolm Smith will personally sign your copy!
Whether the book is for you or a gift for that special motorcyclist, it’s something that will be read over and over – and cherished – for years to come.
About Malcolm Smith Motorsports
From its humble beginnings as a one-room motorcycle shop to winning DealerNews’ 2009 “Dealer of the Year” award, Malcolm Smith Motorsports has become the most storied motorsports dealership in the world. Owned and operated by Malcolm himself, a lifetime of passion for motorcycles and racing heritage has created a dealership unlike any other.
Malcolm Smith Motorsports (MSM) was born in 1966 when Malcolm purchased his hometown dealership. Nearly four decades later, Malcolm moved his business into a brand new 70,000 square-foot superstore in Riverside, California. The result was a dealership that set the standard for all other destination motorsports facilities.
Malcolm Smith Motorsports has come a long way since the early days, but hasn’t lost sight of Malcolm’s original ideals. Stop by and see Malcolm, himself, walking the showroom floor, talking to customers and making sure the dealership that bears his name is meeting their every need. Ask for a signed poster and he’ll be happy to oblige. As he is fond of saying, “Racing made me famous. Customer service made me successful.”
