Everything you need to know to restore or customize your classic Japanese motorcycle.

Whether you want to correctly restore a classic Japanese motorcycle or create a modified, custom build, you need the right information about how to perform the mechanical and cosmetic tasks required to get an old, frequently neglected, and often long-unridden machine back in working order. How to Rebuild and Restore Classic Japanese Motorcycles is your thorough, hands-on manual, covering all the mechanical subsystems that make up a motorcycle. From finding a bike to planning your project to dealing with each mechanical system, How to Rebuild and Restore Classic Japanese Motorcycles includes everything you need to know to get your classic back on the road.

Japanese motorcycles have been the best-selling bikes in the world since the mid-1960s, driven by the "big four": Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, and Kawasaki.

"To be sure, the technical depth Young's book provides in a number of areas exceeds that in most other similar books. With 455 clear color images, illustrations, a number of data tables, three technical appendices and a very helpful index the book provides a lot of visual as well as text information that is bound to save time and money on most aspects of your next - or maybe it's your first - rebuild and restoration." - UltimateMotorcycling.com
