THE RESTORATION OF VINTAGE & THOROUGHBRED MOTORCYCLES (new edition)
WRITTEN BY JEFF CLEW

Second edition, published 1990

When first published in 1976 the restoration of old motorcycles had already become an important part of the “heritage and conservation” movement. Fourteen years on, the scope of restoration subjects has developed enormously, not only encompassing Vintage and Thoroughbred machines but also Classic Motorcycles (those machines more than 25 years old) of every conceivable type. Hand in hand with this growth has been the development of restoration techniques particularly with regards to those processes not so long ago the preserve of the professional workshops but now available to the amateur. In this second edition the author brings the restorer up to date with the developments in restoration techniques and how these can be applied to the greatest benefit, particularly when dealing with more modern machines.
