Mr Smith

Peter Smith

A Sharp Mind in a Blunt Body.

The Two Wheels Columns 1985-1988.

Mr Smith

Peter Smith was a motorcyclist extraordinaire, a towering intellect, a bluesman of note, a lover of the grape and a wonderful raconteur, whose Mr Smith column, published in Two Wheels magazine from 1985 until his death in 2009, made him a much-loved and admired writer in the Australian motorcycling community.

Now, his early Two Wheels columns have been collected into a limited edition book: Mr Smith, A Sharp Mind in a Blunt Body. Featuring the complete collection of his Two Wheels columns from 1985-1988, plus some of his best feature stories and personal recollections from Australian motorcycling identities including John Rooth, Geoff Seddon, Grant “Spannerman” Roff and Guy “Guido” Allen, it’s a must for Mr Smith fans and a unique tribute to Australia’s greatest motorcycle writer.

Only 1,000 copies are available, and all profits will be donated to the Black Dog Institute.
