H-D Review Lite, All Fluff, No Real Content 25 Sept. 2012
By 2muchcoffee - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Disappointing read. Real information is very scant, and is sometimes incorrect. Several errors were noted. The authors even left out a review of the FLHTCU line after 1998. Also, there were very few real warnings regarding areas of concern other than the most obvious and highly publicized problems were provided. They even created "defects" for their "Garage Watch" section, such as, every H-D needs an upgrade to Gel Cell Battery; while it may be a good idea to move to this technology when the time comes, like when you need a new battery, it shouldn't be presented as a clear and present danger.
I'd recommend following the online forums to prospective buyers instead of wasting money on this book.

Ahhh, I'm not sure 4 Jan. 2014
By Roderick A. Waters - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love motorcycles, all of them. I also love Harleys. I am not an expert but I didn't agree with the author on some issues. I also found the book repetitive, you know base gaskets will leak, blah, blah, blah.

A specific example of disagreement was the collectability of kickstart Harleys. In my experience, they should be. You have a factory transmission melded to a factory motor, everything fits. Yet, it's not collectible. However, custom builders will spend thousands for kick start transmissions to build "old school" bikes. And as I pointed out, according to the author some of these actual "old school" bikes are not collectable.

Like I said, I'm not an expert and this is just my two cents.
Not at all what it purports to be 10 April 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The guide is ridiculously repetitive. They keep stating the same issues for the same motors. They show several bikes which use the same motor and "reveal" the same issues for "each" bike. I feel as though this was just a piece of slapped together crap made just to cash in on the author's names and the brands popularity. it's relatively worthless as a buying guide in my opinion.
DON'T waste your $ 31 Oct. 2014

DON'T waste your $. Book is described as a buyer's guide. it's NOT!!! It features several selected models only, not the complete lines as others books do. And it doesn't do a very good job describing them either. There are several other books that are MUCH better and would accurately be described as buyer's guides. go elsewhere. I returned the book too.
