Description

From a corner of the garage set up for routine maintenance to a dream shop housing classic machines, How to Set Up Your Motorcycle Workshop helps motorcyclists make the most of their available space.

Packed with practical advice, author C. G. Masi walks you 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. Masi starts by helping you determine your work space and storage needs and then walks you through the creation of a shop layout that matches your budget. Basics such as providing adequate electrical power, lighting, and heat and air conditioning are all addressed. With the workshop design in place, learn about the must-have and nice-to-have tools to equip the space, and then how to use them.

The book also includes several profiles of real-world workshops, from small garage spaces to purpose-built restoration and race-prep shops, providing ideas and inspiration. Each profile includes a scaled layout of the shop with photos, as well as tips from the owner and designer. A comprehensive resource directory for equipment, tools, computers, battery powered tools, and energy saving tips wraps up the book ensuring you're armed with all the necessary information to tackle the design of your own dream work space.

The author

In addition to working as a college professor, scientist, and engineer, C.G. Masi has been wrenching on, riding, and writing about motorcycles for three decades.  He holds a B.S. degree in Physics and Masters Degrees in Astrophysics and Business Administration.
