How to Rebuild and Restore Classic Harley-Davidson Big Twins 1936-1964

• When it comes to collector motorcycles, none hold the allure of the classic Harley-Davidson Big Twin models built from 1936 to 1964

• But owning and maintaining these temperamental machines provides endless challenges

• Even the most pristine, restored example needs a tremendous amount of care, maintenance, and repair, and most examples are far from pristine restorations, requiring periodic rebuilding and even restoration

• The rebuilding and restoring of these machines is not so much a defined task as a never-ending process

• This book will serve 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, from chassis to bodywork, from wheel to wheel

• Through step-by-step photography and thoughtful, informative instruction, the reader will learn how to disassemble a chassis, repair a fork, lace a wire wheel, and paint the major parts for any restoration

• It will provide thorough instruction on repairing, overhauling, and restoring all major components, such as the engine, transmission, and electrical system

• With thorough text and detailed photography, this book provides start-to-finish instruction for each operation necessary for the repair and restoration of a classic Harley-Davidson Big Twin

• Paperback, 272 Pages

• Illustrations: 669 color photos

• Size: 8-1/4″ x 10-7/8″.

Love this book

The book is very good and well laid out. Lot of information concerning restoration of Pan and knuckleheads. I was a bit disappointed that there was no info for flatheads. It is for 36-64 after all. None the less it is worth the money.
