FIXING UP MOTORCYCLES

The motorcycle is here to stay, whatever New York cabbies might have to say about it. This month you can read about the machine (favorably) in the New York Times, Ms., and if you live long enough someday the Reader's Digest will catch up with the two-wheel revolution. Like everything made of tin and nuts, motorcycles do break down; this -- in the simplest terms -- will instruct you about not only identifying, buying, and riding but how to repair and customize them, from four-stroke engines to the in-and-nards of transmissions, sprockets, and brakes. A general handbook of this sort will never replace the readily available manuals for individual makes but for the beginner who doesn't know the odometer from a chopper, Smith will suffice as an introduction to the naked mysteries.
