While nothing short of an encyclopedia would cover every aspect of restoring these old bikes this book gives a solid effort on the big picture and some of the details. It’s packed with hundreds of color close up shots and tips on taking these old parts apart and putting them back together again.

There are two good sections on removing broken screws and studs and a really detailed look at rebuilding a Linkert carburetor using close up photographs.

There are literally hundreds of small tips and advice in the book. This is a highly informative guide to restoring these old classic Harleys.
