Product Description

Review

As you would expect the authoritative text written in plain English is backed up with plenty of sharp high quality images. Although aimed at the beginner it is the perfect guide for anybody tackling a classic motorcycle restoration and its money saving tips will easily cover the modest cost of book over and over again. Printed as a soft-bound book in workshop manual style it is the perfect workshop companion and well worth the £30.00 cover price. --Ian Kerr - Freelance

Burns covers all the bases and writes from a perspective that a lot of back yard would-be classic bike restorers can appreciate ... Chances are, if you have never restored a motorcycle of any age or brand, a good first step before you lay out the cash for a bike to restore might be to lay your hands on Ricky Burns book. --UltimateMotorcycling.com

Well-illustrated and easy-to-read. A must read before undertaking any classic bike restoration. Some great tips and cheats! --Motorbike Search Engine

About the Author

Growing up in the early 1970s, surrounded by Yamahas, Hondas, Suzukis and Kawasakis, Ricky Burns had no choice but to fall in love with motorcycles. Since those early days, he has oiled, maintained, fixed (and broken for parts) many fine specimens of now classic motorcycles but, nowadays, he tends to restore them, rather than break them. Having personally restored many classic motorcycles, from small Yamaha two-strokes, to large Honda Goldwings, he has now decided to share his restoration experiences with like-minded enthusiasts.

Good book, offering step by step information for anyone interested in restoring 1970s and 1980s motorcycles.
Very descriptive, well written, with plenty of photographs.
The book is based around Japanese motorcycles which are now becoming popular to restore by people that owned them
originally.
