Put it together properly, Look after it properly, Warm it up properly, Exercise it properly! But, accept its performance limitations - it isn't a big parallel twin, and it isn't Japanese!"
And, a wonderful and unique book it is, indeed. Smith has concocted a recipe of 1 cup shop manual, one cup restoration guide, a half cup of factory service tips, heavily seasoned the mix with suggestions based on personal experience, and sprinkled liberally with the philosophies of a long-time rider, and cooked up an equally tasty and nutritious dish for anyone who owns a Beezer unit single. The Unit Single manual starts with brief history of the machines, and then proceeds to chapters on rebuilding each element of the bikes' electrical and mechanical systems. (Note that the operative words in the title are "Engine Manual" - the book does not explore brakes, frame, wheels, etc.). Each chapter includes selections from dealer service sheets and the factory's and author's illustrations.Read more ›
such I wasn't expecting this book to tell me anything new. But because it
has such a good reputation I bought a copy to see what the fuss was all
about. To my delight, it suggested checking a couple of things that in all
those years just simply hadn't occurred to me. And I'm confident they will
lead to better oil-tightness.
That's what this book is all about. It is a thorough and complete reference
and you are told everything to look out for and check - things that are
important but are not always obvious. It concentrates solely on the engine
which is a good thing as it is given the chance to be covered in sufficient
detail. Even if you are very familiar with unit singles and already have a (genuine BSA is preferable) workshop manual and parts book, it is still likely to be of help. If new to them, then don't hesitate - buy this book!
All credit to the effort the author has put into this book which quite
clearly reflects careful study and many, many hours in the workshop and out
riding on the road. An excellent book - 10 out of 10
If you are a fairly confident home mechanic then this book is perfect. It is also an interesting book just to read.
Shame it does not come with a BSA single to work on!
