Description

How to Restore Suzuki 2-Stroke Triples is the definitive step-by-step colour illustrated guide to complete restoration, and a must-have restoration guide for both beginners and seasoned Suzuki Triple enthusiasts.

If you can still remember the signature of many 70s motorcycles - the characteristic sound and smell of a 2-cylinder 2-stroke engine - then you'll find pleasure in the knowledge that many of these classics are still alive and well today, in sheds, garages and barns across the country. Many only make an appearance on a nice, sunny day, perhaps attending classic events or taking an early evening summer ride with friends. Buying one of these motorcycles can be expensive, yet find one in need of just the lightest restoration and you may strike a bargain price.

Restoration is not as difficult as it may at first appear, and benefiting from Ricky Burns' hands-on knowledge and experience, this step-by-step illustrated guide will give any potential restorer all the advice, tips and shortcuts needed to make an economical, easy restoration happen. This book covers dismantling and rebuilding, sourcing parts, special tools, tackling bodywork, restoring engines and mechanical parts, and much more.

The author

Ricky Burns has been an avid restorer of motorcycles since the 1970s. He has restored many classic motorbikes from the 70s and 80s, from small Yamaha 2-strokes, all the way up to large multi cylinder machines. Ricky has now decided to share his experience and knowledge with like-minded enthusiasts. Aiming to connect with all the Honda CX enthusiasts out there, he decided to dedicate his evenings to a Honda CX500 restoration project and this new book was born!
