From finding a bike to planning your project to dealing with each mechanical system, How to Rebuild and Restore Classic Japanese Motorcycles includes everything you need to know to get your classic back on the road. Japanese motorcycles have been the best-selling bikes in the world since the mid-1960s, driven by the "big four": Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, and Kawasaki. Of course certain bikes have always had a following - Honda CB750, 305 Hawk, CB400-4, Benly; Suzuki GT750, Katana, GS1000S; Yamaha XS650, RD400 Daytona, TZ; Kawaski H1, H2, Z1R - and these have now become the blue-chip Japanese bikes leading collectors to seek out more common (and now more affordable) alternatives. This is the perfect book for anyone interested in classic Japanese motorcycles, as well as prepping a bike to build a cafe racer, street tracker, or other custom build.

As the costs associated with buying and owning collectible American and European motorcycles continue to rise, enthusiasts are turning in greater numbers to motorcycles produced by Japanese manufacturers from the 1960s to the early 1980s. The prolific production of Japanese motorcycles during this period today translates to consumer-friendly market values for collectors. This buyer's guide divides the world of classic Japanese motorcycles by the four major manufacturers -- Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, and Suzuki -- while emphasizing such landmark models as the Kawasaki Z-1 and Honda CB750, and featuring a chapter of less common models from secondary marques like Bridgestone. Photographs of the motorcycles are accompanied by complete descriptions of specification, components, paint codes, and serial numbers. A five-star rating system grades the bikes on collectibility, parts availability, two-up touring, reliability, and power, while the author highlights common repair and restoration needs, and suggests sources for collectible models.
