Classic Motorcycle Mechanics looks at maintaining, restoring and rebuilding the modern classics of motorcycling. Ground-breaking 1970s, 80s and 90s machines from the likes of Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki are road tested, reviewed and discussed in detail. There’s news and views too, and readers’ rides ranging from fully faired racing machines to single-cylinder road bikes are put under the microscope.
The pitfalls of purchasing modern classics are outlined in handy buyers’ guides, and there’s advice on the best bargains to be had today. Particular parts are profiled and essential workshop procedures are explained in full.
