Published in 1981. Editorial: ...Rather than settle for less motorcycle than you really want, why not select a good used bike, and, if you need more performance, set it up with aftermarket gear so it will perform as well as the latest? That's the purpose of this book. We tell you what we think the good machines are, and suggest reasonable prices for them. We select a number to reprise in reprinted tests and a few more for special update attention. We also tell you how to care for your bike to make sure it always runs as well as it can, and offer some examples of what you can do to an old bike if you're willing to go all-out in performance and custom modifying. If you'd like to do that anyway, you'd be wasting your money to buy a new bike to metamorphose. Every motorcycle in this book is a good buy, even if you keep it stock. You won't find any bombs, like Yamaha's ill-fated TX750 twin, which wasn't right when the factory put it out...nor will you find any mention of those Eastern European slugs that occasionally turn up in the classifieds for unbelievably low prices. You'll only find the best bikes of the decade and the best information available on how they changed, how to fix them up and how to take care of them. If you already own one of these machines you'll discover a wealth of information on how to keep it forever young and faithful to you...
