From a corner of the garage set up for routine maintenance to a dream shop housing precious classic machines, How to Set Up Your Motorcycle Workshop, Second Edition will help you make the most of your space. Packed with easy-to-read practical advice, author Charles Masi walks the reader through designing, building, and equipping the workshop you need - whether you plan to restore, repair, and maintain your own bikes or hope to open a small commercial facility.How to Set Up Your Motorcycle Workshop starts by helping readers determine their work space and storage needs and create a shop layout that matches their budget. The author then addresses basics such as providing adequate electrical power, lighting, and heat and air conditioning. With the workshop design in place, Masi helps readers identify the must-have and want -to-have tools to appropriately equip the space. This new second edition of the book includes additional profiles of real world workshops, from small garage spaces to purpose-built restoration and race-prep shops, and features a new comprehensive and up-to-date directory of resources for equipment and tools.
