Vehicle Maintenance: Books & Manuals

  • The Official Tour de France Bike Maintenance Book

    Luke Edwardes-Evans

    Product Code: BXLGX
    Hardback
    The Official Tour de France Maintenance Book goes exclusively behind the scenes with the finest professional cycling mechanics during the most gruelling and high-pressure bike race in the world. Working at the cutting edge of bicycle technology, Tour mechanics expertly maintain high performance race bikes every day throughout the Tour. The highlight, for many fans, is watching the bikes being prepared before a stage and serviced after it. The reader is put in the fans' shoes, with exclusive insights and images from the life of a Tour mechanic, with in-race stories and technical advice. Practical sections in each chapter show the home mechanic how to perform essential maintenance tasks and personalise their own bicycles to Tour de France standards. Even if bikes are serviced by shop mechanics, vital checks and regular adjustments are covered in these pages and, to make a bike stand out, there are professional tricks of the trade as well as the small but telling detailing jobs to enhance the bike's looks. Another feature of The Official Tour de France Maintenance Book focuses on the growing interest in classic racing machines, which are collected, ridden and displayed in "Eroica" festivals, events celebrating the heroic age of cycling. These, of course, include Tour de France bikes from the past 75 years and there are features on these classic bikes, with maintenance tips using traditional tools and techniques.

  • Panhard AML and Eland Enthusiasts' Manual

    Simon Dunstan

    Product Code: BUGFS
    Hardback
    In the history of armoured fighting vehicles, there have been few that have been so successful or so extensively employed as the Panhard AML armoured car. Based on the British Ferret armoured car, the French-built Panhard AML was first used in combat during the war in Algeria in the early 1960s. Thereafter the AML has fought in numerous wars, notably in Africa, up until the present day with ongoing operations against Boko Haram in Nigeria and Chad. It also fought on the side of the Argentinians during the Falklands War in 1982, and the war on ISIS in 2016. Now with an experienced military author, who was given full and exclusive access to an AML armoured car, this is the latest modern armoured fighting vehicle to receive the Haynes treatment. The Panhard AML and Eland Enthusiasts' Manual is fully illustrated with archive photos, technical drawings and detailed photography.

  • Lotus Europa

    Matthew Vale

    Product Code: BRVFW
    Paperback
    The Essential Guide to buying the Lotus Europa of your dreams, this book will guide you through all you need to know. Originally intended to be a cheap and basic Lotus Seven replacement, during its development the Lotus Europa morphed into a miniature supercar, described by Colin Chapman as a "working man's GT40," which sat alongside the Elan in the Lotus line-up. Its mid engined configuration gave it exceptional balance, and its handling and roadholding were second to none. Initially produced for export to Europe in late 1966, the Renault-powered car evolved into the Series 2 in 1968 when it was released to the UK and US markets, and, in its final iteration, gained the Lotus' own Twin Cam engine in 1971. Production ended in 1975 with around 9200 cars completed. This book has been written to provide the prospective owner with all the information they need to establish if the car is for them, and what to look for when viewing an example. All aspects of the cars are examined, including paperwork, mechanical issues, bodywork and interior with many photos of example cars to assist in the assessment of an individual car, and understand the implications of many of the common problems that a car can exhibit. The author is a Lotus enthusiast, and has been working on and writing about classic Lotuses for a number of years.
