Submitting Articles to Early Motorcycles
I encourage you to please send in articles for ‘Early Motorcycles’ to make it interesting and helpful.
Although I produce some articles myself I am also relying on readers to send in interesting pieces on pre-1960 (or later ) motorcycles. Don't be concerned if you feel you don't write very well, I can edit it for you.
What sort of articles are we looking for?
There is a wide range of interests even in the 'narrow' range that ‘Early Motorcycles’ covers. Interesting pieces are needed on;
Your motorcycle and its history / restoration. Before and after photos, how you found it, etc.
Technical hints and tips. Restoration help, problem solving. eg. How to cover a seat, how to fit beaded tyres, how to convert gas lights, etc.
Technical information about a particular machine / make.
Business profiles (from companies).
Weird and strange items
Rally and show reports.
Tell us about your club.
Old advertisements and clippings.
Scans of parts books, brochures and manuals. Factory produced ones are OK but see 'Copyright' below.
Other items that you think may be of interest to readers
If possible please send written material as plain text rather than in MS -Word or rtf.
Photos, Movies & Graphics:
Please send photos and illustrations to make your article more interesting. Short movie clips are also possible although they should not be too long – 10 - 15 seconds maximum. For longer ones please enquire. Movies with sound are a great way to show a machine running. We can all hear and watch it. A link to Youtube is another way to make your clip available
If you have an item to submit, please use the link on the 'Contact Us' page and i will send you the details on sending it to me. This is to help prevent spammers trolling for addresses sending a lot of junk.
Articles will be used as time and space is available but as soon as possible.
Non English Articles:
Articles will be published in the language of the author, however please provide a summary in English to help those who do not understand your language. If your English is not very good I can edit it. I have a post graduate degree in Linguistics and have had a lot of experience in changing 'not so good English' into 'reasonable' English. (Ed).
Waiting to hear from you ... :-)
