"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 like those from Lucas. Modern 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."--P.  of cover.
