When it comes to collector motorcycles, none hold the allure of
the classic Harley-Davidson Big Twins built from 1936 to 1964.
But owning and maintaining these tempermental machines provides
endless challenges. Even the most pristine, restored example
needs a tremendous amount of care, maintenance, and repair. The
rebuilding and restoring of these machines is not so much a
defined task as a never-ending process. This book serves to
guide owners through that process.
Beginning with a practical section on understanding, choosing,
and purchasing a classic Harley, this book focuses on the nuts
and bolts of classic Harley ownership. Through step-by-step
photography and thoughtful, informative instruction, the reader
will learn how to disassemble a chassis, rebuild a fork, lace a
wheel, and paint the major parts for any restoration. It also
provides thorough instruction on repairing, overhauling, and
restoring all major components, such as the engine,
transmission, and electrical system.
