Leigh and Randy Ellis opened “the world’s
smallest motorcycle repair shop” in 1985. By the time they’d been in business a
week, they had a line of 25 bikes in front of their shop and every one of them
needed to be made to run. They quickly realized that people just didn’t know how
to take care of their motorcycles and no shop seemed to be willing to educate
them. So they started thinking of ways to do this. Then Leigh came up with the
idea of writing a manual that anyone could use. A manual that would not just
show how to get a non-running motorcycle up and running, but also how to keep it
running right. So that is what they did.
Drawing upon Randy's decades of experience
working on all years makes and models of motorcycles, and Leigh's ability to
write, they took a year to write the book and another year to format it and get
it ready for publishing.
Randy said, “The reason for writing this book is
that people need help doing their own motorcycle repairs. In this manual, we’ve
given them all the tips, tricks and trade secrets while saving them the maximum
amount of time, money and effort.”
Their new book "How To Get Your Motorcycle Up &
Running - The Shop Manual For All Years Makes & Models” is now available at
their shop in Everett, Washington, on their Web site at, www.getitrunning.com,
and through Amazon.com.
