‘Excellent books, perfect transaction, thank you
Classic Motorcycle Manuals publish a whole range of books from the turn of the last century, or to be more accurate re-publish them. As a result of their excellent work they allow those of us with an interest in motorcycle history to read first-hand accounts of the pioneering days of riding and maintenance without hunting around autojumbles or antique bookshops for dog eared copies of the originals.
The latest project to come from the Malvern based company is an excellent hardback book called Motorcycle Repair and Upkeep. The contents were originally published as a Series of 14 weekly parts around 1932, but are now reproduced in three books, that are soon to become sort after collector’s items in the very near future.
