REVIEW ☆ Rebuilding the Indian Ginal spare part; the joy of completing a repair that was previously beyond his ability; the nagging doubt that he's insane and the bike will never be finished; the suspicion that once it looks finished it won't run; and finally the sheer headlong heart thrilling rush of riding the gleaming midnight blue Millennium FlyerFred Haefele writes with poetic ease about making something in this case both a gorgeous motorcycle and a beautiful baby girl and how the most versatile tool in his kit for both jobs was the fervent wish to do it right. This is a fun read in its way Different people will get different things from it I m a gearhead wannabe and sometime casual motorcyclist and like most guys my age I like old machinery I was mostly interested in the story of how an admittedly clueless novice transformed an array of pieces littering his garage floor into a beautiful probably better than new vintage motorcycle The really hard stuff like overhauling the engine was contracted out but even so it was obviously an undertaking that would be beyond most of us Many guys I know have long lists of uncompleted projects all less complicated than the rebuilding of a 1940s motorcycle and the simplest such projects sit half complete and neglected in corners of garages I can only admire the author for seeing this project through to completion in what I recognize as good time Of course he had a lot of help but never mind I m not sure how interested I was in the rest of his life The progress of his wife s pregnancy and the birth of his daughter was clearly intended to run parallel to the restoration of the motorcycle The passages in which he describes his day to day work as an arborist serve to remind the reader that the author is a working stiff and the all consuming task of rebuilding a fifty year old motorcycle has to be fitted into an ongoing life Still as short as this book is I found myself wanting to skip many of the parts that dealt with his personal life thinking to myself that his personal life is no interesting than that of many of my friends or my own The motorcycle and how it affects him is what makes this story worth reading For that reason I found the acuaintances he made through his motorcycle project and his interaction with them interesting than his familyIt was a relaxing read but it was tedious in parts When I finished it i found myself leafing back to refresh my first impressions of his motorcycle mechanics mentors Maybe this book was better than I gave it credit for as I was reading it There s something about old bikes I ve never ridden a really old bike but get off a 1980s bike and ride a twenty first century bike and the new bike does everything better Even so there s something about old machinery that won t be denied I give the author big points for staying with the old Indian machine with its balky engine and awkward unconventional controls I gasped with him for much of the description of his first rides I think I would have wrecked the machine and myself in the process and by the lights of the book the author didn t have much motorcycling experience than I do If you don t like old machinery in general or motorcycles in particular if you don t feel a sort of wistful envy of a guy who can see a huge project like this one while managing a working life this book is probably not for you Or maybe it is but you ll see it very differently from the way I did Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds, Vol. 9 (9) of completing a repair that was previously beyond his ability; the nagging doubt that he's insane and the bike will never be finished; the suspicion that 夏の庭 of riding the gleaming midnight blue Millennium FlyerFred Haefele writes with poetic ease about making something in this case both a gorgeous motorcycle and a beautiful baby girl and how the most versatile tool in his kit for both jobs was the fervent wish to do it right.

REVIEW ☆ Rebuilding the Indian An absolutely charming and original book that will take its place alongside Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance as not only a classic work on bikes but also as a touchstone for those looking for meaning in lifeMaybe he's losing his mind Maybe he's having a midlife crisis Or maybe he's simply fulfilling a lifelong dream despite its near impossibility Fred Haefele a writer who can't get his novel published an arborist who has sporadic work that's murder on his aging muscles and an expectant father for the first time in than twenty. I found Rebuilding the Indian on the clearance shelf of a bookstore in Napa California for just 999 Being a motorcyclist I figured I d pick it up If it turned out to be an awful book well only ten dollars wastedBut what a pleasure it turned out to be Not just a book about restoring an Indian it s about the Author s journey through life his failed first marriage his blissful second marriage and the birth of his third child Putting the bike back together seems to be a metaphor for his life as he attempts to resurrect his writing and teaching careers The restoration itself is an exercise in frustration and hilarity and an experience I can entirely relate to doing whatever it takes to get the bike running at the very end when you need that last nut or bolt it s midnight and nearest bike shop is closed It s no Hemingway novel to be sure but it s easy to read entertaining and touching to the soulIf you re into motorcycles at all or have ever contemplated buying a basketcase of your own this is a must read Highly recommended Nontuberculous Mycobacteria (Ntm) only a classic work General Relativity Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series on bikes but also as a touchstone for those looking for meaning in lifeMaybe he's losing his mind Maybe he's having a midlife crisis Or maybe he's simply fulfilling a lifelong dream despite its near impossibility Fred Haefele a writer who can't get his novel published an arborist who has sporadic work that's murder Il Gattopardo on his aging muscles and an expectant father for the first time in than twenty.
