The market for used motorcycles is vast and deep, with many popular motorcycles available for a fraction of what they cost when new even a few years ago. With a little hard work and know-how, a restored used bike can become a reliable and stylish commuter vehicle. But restoring an older motorcycle can be challenging. Often you're dealing with old technology, parts that are hard to replace, rusty and stubborn bolts, etc. How to Restore Your Motorcycle walks the reader through the process of tearing down an old motorcycle and building it back up again. This revised edition adds color photography throughout, as well as new information covering bikes and technologies new to the collector realm.

Baker & Taylor
"This book covers a vast array of classic motorcycles, from a Honda Benly to a Vincent Rapide, and includes information on Japanese, British, American, German, and Italian bikes. All major mechanical and electrical systems are covered, with special attention paid to challenging systems like those from Lucas. Modern systems common to more recent collectible machines--fuel injection, electronic ignition, more advanced suspension systems--are covered as well. This book also covers practical subjects like setting up a workshop, buying a used motorcycle, research, and deciding what to restore or what to leave in original condition."--P. [4] of cover.
