Bridgestone Motorcycles 175 Series Technical Handbook and Parts Catalogue

Author: Bridgestone (Motorcycles) Co., Ltd.
ISBN: 9781588501967
VP Book ID: 20108
Pages: 156
Dimensions: 8 1/4" x 10 3/4"

Description: 156 pages, 162 illustrations, size 8.25 x 10.75 inches. A previously unpublished manual from the Floyd Clymer archives. This high quality combination reprint of the original Bridgestone 175 Factory ‘Technical Handbook’ (Workshop Manual) and ‘Parts Catalogue’ is a significant publication for owners of the Dual Twin or Hurricane Scrambler models. It also includes the appropriate pages from the extremely scarce ‘Tuning up for Competition’ factory publication.

Obviously, any owner or restorer of these iconic motorcycles cannot find a better workshop manual than one originally issued by the factory. During the time they were in production, Bridgestone (Motorcycles) published ‘Technical Handbooks’ or, more appropriately, ‘Workshop Manuals’ for their various models. These factory issued ‘Technical Handbooks’ were produced in small quantities and are scarce and difficult to find in today’s market.

In addition, the factory also published ‘Parts Catalogues’ which included exploded parts diagrams that are a useful tool for restoration work or even general maintenance tasks. These factory ‘Parts Catalogues’ were also re-printed by Rockford Motors, but unfortunately, many of the parts diagrams were reduced in size (some to less than a quarter page) making the details difficult to see. This manual also includes a re-print of the original factory ‘Bridgestone 175 Series Parts Catalogue’ with full page exploded parts diagrams.

Both Rockford Motors and Floyd Clymer also published repair ‘manuals’, but unfortunately, the quality of the images were degraded in the re-print process (that was available at that time) and some of them are so poor that they are of little use. By utilizing both the original factory ‘Technical Handbook’ and ‘Parts Catalogue’ in the production of this combined manual we have hopefully provided the reader with quality enhanced images that are far superior to those in the earlier Rockford and Clymer reprints.

As can be expected from a factory publication, there is adequate detailed text and diagrams to assist in major refurbishing or even a complete mechanical renovation making it an invaluable resource for collectors of these iconic motorcycles and we are pleased to be able to offer this reprint as a service to all Bridgestone Dual Twin and Hurricane Scrambler owners and enthusiasts worldwide. ...$29.95 USD
