The decision to restore an old motorcycle comes more from the heart, less from the brain. A restoration is not based on any financial business case. However, these projects do employ standard double-entry accounting principles … one amount for the true investment cost, and the other for the much lower figure that is shared with the spouse.
The subject of this book is a 1965 Honda Benly Touring 150, a true "poor man's classic". This book covers the entire project, from acquisition, bruises and Band Aids, through restoration.
