Racing Motorcycle Build Project Check List

Main Components - preparing a vintage motorcycle for racing will require you to clean and assess each of these components. Any main components that are not in good working condition will need to be replaced.

Consumable Parts - these are parts you will certainly need to replace initially, and repeatedly - some more often than others.

Labour - just a few notes about things you may have to do, or pay someone else to.
