From a corner of the garage set up for routine maintenance to a dream shop housing precious classic machines, this book will help motorcyclists make the most of their available space. Packed with easy-to-read practical advice, author C. G. Masi walks the reader through designing, building, and equipping the workshop they need -- whether they plan to restore, repair, and maintain their own bikes or hope to open a small commercial facility. He starts by helping readers determine their work space and storage needs to create a shop layout that matches their budget. He then addresses basics such as providing adequate electrical power, lighting, and heat and air conditioning. With the workshop design in place, the must-have and want-to-have tools to appropriately equip the space, and best of all, how to use them, are identified. This new third edition includes numerous profiles of real world workshops, from small garage spaces to purpose-built restoration and race-prep shops, providing ideas and inspiration for Do-It-Yourselfers. Each profile has a scaled layout of the shop with photos, as well as tips from the owner and designer. It also features a new comprehensive and up-to-date directory of resources for equipment, tools, computers, battery powered tools, and energy saving tips.
