Item Description

You've tripped over that box of parts in your garage for too long — it's time to turn it back into a motorcycle!

What you need is a coach to guide you through the restoration process, and author and motorcycle restorer Mark Zimmerman is your guy.

How to Restore Your Motorcycle demystifies motorcycle restoration in a logical step-by-step manner. With vivid color photos and illustrations, this book helps you turn that collection of parts into a classic motorcycle you will be proud to own and ride.

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 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.

When restoring a classic bike, a trusted resource like How to Restore Your Motorcycle is one of the best tools for your shop.
