When it comes to collector motorcycles, none hold the allure of the classic Harley-Davidson Big Twins built from 1936 to 1964. But owning and maintaining these tempermental machines provides endless challenges. Even the most pristine, restored example needs a tremendous amount of care, maintenance, and repair. The rebuilding and restoring of these machines is not so much a defined task as a never-ending process. This book serves 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. Through step-by-step photography and thoughtful, informative instruction, the reader will learn how to disassemble a chassis, rebuild a fork, lace a wheel, and paint the major parts for any restoration. It also provides thorough instruction on repairing, overhauling, and restoring all major components, such as the engine, transmission, and electrical system. Chapter 1 – A Brief History and Some BasicsChapter 2 – PreparationChapter 3 – Chassis, Wheels, Brakes, Front ends, Handlebars, Controls, and StandsChapter 4 – Engine RebuildChapter 5 – Transmission and ClutchChapter 6 – Gas and Oil Tanks, Carburetors, and Exhaust SystemsChapter 7 – Electrical Systems, Dash, Speedometer, Lights, and HornsChapter 8 – Paint and BodyworkChapter 9 – Get It Running, Keep It RunningChapter 10 – Stock Machines, Road Warriors, and Customs
