About the Author
Nigel Clark was raised in a family wherein motorcycles were never far away. His day job as an architect took him into the outbuildings and sheds of clients, where he discovered, bought, restored and sold countless machines, all the while learning specific details of the different marques. A serious road accident on the Isle of Man left him partially disabled, but this did not dent his enthusiasm for old British motorcycles, and indirectly opened a door to a change of career - a move into classic motorcycle journalism. Since leaving this sphere of work, he continues to restore bikes, but he sells on his restorations, giving someone else the pleasure of a restored British classic motorcycle.
