The British Classic Bike Guide by Frank WestworthThe British Classic Bike Guide

If you are thinking of buying an old British bike, then there can be only one. One book, that is, which tells you all you need to know. Written by Frank The Ex-Editor and now in its third printing, the British Classic Bike Guide is simply indispensable if you have a whim to splash some cash -- or if you just want to get the most from riding an old bike which you already own.

The latest reprint of Frank's book would have been even better if the publisher had asked for a revision of the time-sensitive pricing and club information but hey, too much of a good thing can be bad for you, we've heard.

We may be a teeny bit biased on this subject, so we found a second opinion. Here's what one reader, John Whapshott, says about the British Classic Bike Guide;

'This is the one book every prospective British bike buyer should read before he/she buys! It's extremely practical and honest about these wonderful (and not-so-wonderful) machines, and written with immense knowledge, wisdom and humour, by a man who is immense -- er, immensely experienced in riding (and sometimes pushing) the machines of our dreams (and nightmares). It really is a brilliant book, and I thoroughly and unreservedly recommend it!'
