About the Author

Growing up in the early 1970s, surrounded by Yamahas, Hondas, Suzukis and Kawasakis, Ricky Burns had no choice but to fall in love with motorcycles. Since those early days, he has oiled, maintained, fixed (and broken for parts) many fine specimens of now classic motorcycles but, nowadays, he tends to restore them, rather than break them. Having personally restored many classic motorcycles, from small Yamaha two-strokes, to large Honda Goldwings, he has now decided to share his restoration experiences with like-minded enthusiasts.
