About the Author
A Texas high school teacher by day, motojournalist and avid Brit rebuilder by night, Mike Brown has been wrenching and learning the nuances of Triumph/BSA unit twins for more than 20 years. He has written numerous technical articles for Old Bike Journal, Walneck’s Cycle Trader, and other U.S. magazines. He also fields reader questions about rebuilding and restoring old bikes.

Most of these hints and tips are not in the manuals as they are the result of experience by the author and not possible for a technical writer in a factory who has probably never ridden such a machine, much less ever taken one apart and rebuilt it.
It is well written, in an orderly fashion providing guidance in an easy-to-understand format. I wish there were more books like this.
Mike Brown and Dan Kennedy have made a solid contribution to the worldwide restoration of the Meriden and Small Heath twins. While the title perhaps doesn't translate well into 'strine' (Australian English!)...the contents certainly do. This is a very, very useful book to have around when riders are restoring British twins in any English-speaking country. Nice to see him recognising the long-time support he's received from Mark Appleton of British Cycle Supply, a sentiment many would echo.
There are tips in here I would cheerfully have co-opted for my 2007 book, "Classic Motorcycling: A Guide for the 21st Century". Mike Brown's inventiveness in designing tools for Triumph twins is exemplary. It's worth buying this book for these tips alone. Despite writing for a US audience, Mike's book will appeal to the worldwide classic audience. He writes simply and laconically in a style that suits downunder audiences. Whitehorse are providing this work at a price-point I find unbeatable. Grab a copy before they put the price up! Oh as well, some of Mikes many restoration pics in the book look more like concours bikes than budget bikes, so don't let the title dissuade you from buying it. Rex
