I just got in my copy of Mike Brown's new book, "Building Budget Brits". This book was written for us! Fabulous book. It covers every detail of restoring Triumphs/BSA's, including teardown, frame and bodywork, wheels, electrical, and complete engine coverage, including all aspects of the engine rebuild. Plenty of detailed photos. I love reading his column in Walneck's every month. For anyone doing their own restoration, this book is perfect. I bought it through Amazon, but I think he also sells direct (check out Walneck's).

With this book, plus the 4Aces and Hancock's DVD's, I feel way more confident on tackling my 70 Bonnie restoration project.

I know where you live....

Upstate,

Thanks for the review. Just ordered the book on-line. Looking forward to getting into it.

And if it sucks, don't forget that a few weeks back you told me where you live. ;-).
regards,
Rob

the 4Aces and Hancock's DVD's

Tell me more about the "4Aces and Hancock's DVD's".

I've tried to search for them and, as one would imagine, I keep getting Will Smith's movie "Hancock".

Thanks!

Jake

Links to Engine Rebuild DVD's

Jake,

Here are the links to the Hancox and 4Aces Triumph engine rebuild DVD:

http://hughiehancoxrestorations.co.uk/

Price 36 BP


http://fouracescycle.com/

Price $40 US

Both are good. The Hancox one is excellent. The 4Aces ones whizzes through a bit, and gives a little different perspective. Together, they cover most everything.

Mike's book is available through Whitehorse Press, or of course Amazon and others.

http://www.whitehorsepress.com/

Price $25 US

Now, if only I can quit reading and watching DVD's, and get the engine up on the stand to start work. I know, I'll order a motivational video next!

Thanks to all!

I had been to the Four Aces web page before but never to the bottom of the merchandise page to find the vid.

Thanks again.
