The book (Classic Motorcycles Restoration Guide) is the fruit of hands-on experience gained in the workshop as well as knowledge gleaned over years of consulting books, manufacturers’ manuals and specialist magazines by one of the leading technical journalists in the sector, Massimo Clarke.
It is intended as an easy-to-read guide with clear, precise contents regarding the restoration of classic bikes, with attention being focussed not on pre-war models but those from the Sixties and Seventies, those on which we still work most frequently today.
All aspects of restoration are dealt with, with special reference to mechanical work on the engines and the chassis components, those which enthusiasts can do themselves in their own garages, using tools that are easy to find at reasonable costs.
This updated edition of the book is enhanced by an in-depth examination of the reassembly of the crankcase and two new chapters dedicated to the final drive and the spark plugs.
A guide of fundamental importance for those who want to “get their hands dirty” around their classic bikes.
