"To be sure, the technical depth Young's book provides in a number of areas exceeds that in most other similar books. With 455 clear color images, illustrations, a number of data tables, three technical appendices and a very helpful index the book provides a lot of visual as well as text information that is bound to save time and money on most aspects of your next - or maybe it's your first - rebuild and restoration." - UltimateMotorcycling.com
