CLASSIC MOTORCYCLE BOOKS - GOOD READING
I love books. I grew up reading Edgar Rice Burroughs (Tarzan & John Carter on Mars, etc.) & never stopped reading. I am a voracious reader. Good thing too. Because the research that is required to do this site is monumental. Classic-British-Motorcycles.com is intended to be a complete online index of every major postwar Classic British Motorcycle, broken down my make, model & year. That means I need to build a page on every year of every model of every major marque of Classic British Motorcycle from WWII on.

CLASSIC MOTORCYCLE BOOKS - REFERENCE MATERIAL
Having reliable, well-organized information to refer to is critical. I use many sources, but my main one is my growing collection of books on the subject. These books have been absolutely essential to my progress, here at Classic-British-Motorcycles.com. But the same certainly holds true for anyone researching a given marque or a certain model of motorcycle. Restoration Guides are an invaluable resource when restoring a Classic Motorcycle. And of course, reading about your favorite subject is FUN. Enjoy the read...
