Motor Cycle Modification: Keeping Your Project Safe 

Making a modification? Building a special? Restoring a classic? John Hardaker’s book, Motor Cycle Modification, proposes a simple method based on long-established aircraft and aero-engine practices of reviewing any intended modification at an early stage so that any possible safety problems can be avoided.

The book is more than just a basic manual and incorporates numerous sketches and photographs to illustrate various points together with many memories from a long career, various related and unrelated thoughts and a few original and possibly controversial suggestions which occurred to the author at the time of writing.

It invites the reader to either agree or disagree with any or all of these deviations from the basic principles of the method. The danger of modding is often in the small details, so it’s better not to find it the hard way. Available from usual sources including Amazon and Kindle or from i2i Publishing.
