Format: Paperback
My Daily Driver motorcycle is a 1981 Honda CX500C. I wanted all the books/repair mauals required to keep it running- so I purchased this book. The problem is the newest motorcycle in this book is like 1965- emphasis on the word ANTIQUE.

BUT- after reading this and being highly impressed with the writing and drawings, I've decided to order the other 4 books in the series. If you can understand the "old technology" then its easy to understand the NEW technology- going backwards is far harder.

Easy reading- beware, however you need to be technically and mechanically minded or it won't make sense to you.

Format: Paperback
This is book 3 in the Osprey series on motorcycle restoration "for owners and restorers of all motorcycles -- vintage, classic, and collectible." The brilliance of this series is that it provides an historical background of how motorcycles were designed and functioned while simultaneously identifying the larger concepts and methods which link the engineering with the past to the performance of the present.

Paperback, 122 pp, indexed, with 5 appendices. Something like 200 B&w illustrations throughout: photos, vintage photos, line drawings, exploded views.
