For 2019, Accademia ED is offering this major new development linked to the vintage motoring world.
In collaboration with Dueruote, AED is launching the first Master Diploma Course in the Restoration of Classic Motorcycles, a unique course for all enthusiasts eager to learn the secrets, practices and tools of a fascinating and valued profession.
Drawing on the participation of leading experts in the sector, it is spread over six full-on days of theory lessons and practical workshops in the Dueruote Garage with vertical full-immersion teaching for a total of 50 hours spread over two weekends.
Those attending the Master Diploma Course will be split into work groups covering all the steps in a comprehensive restoration project.
During the course, it will explore consultation and research in historic archives while workdays in the Dueruote Garage will revolve around 4 principal macro-themes:
1. Mechanics: engine, carburettor and electrics;
2. Motorcycling: suspensions, chassis, wheels; panel-beating applied to restoration;
3. Caring for bodywork and paint: recovering the original paint, ex-novo painting, chromium plating and anodising;
4. Upholstery: leather refurbishment and treatment.
