What started in the mid-90s when a few people decided to build (stock Softails÷ from aftermarket parts·because they couldn't buy one at the dealer·has evolved into a full-blown industry. Today, every small town has a Chopper or Custom bike shop and every cable TV channel has a Biker Build-Off series. No longer content to build copies of stock motorcycles, today's builder wants a motorcycle that's longer, lower, and sexier than anything approved by a factory design team. Wolfgang Publications and Tim Remus were there at the very beginning of the trend with their Ultimate V-Twin Motorcycle book. Today they're back with their new book, Advanced Custom Motorcycle Assembly & Fabrication. Part catalog, part service manual, and part inspiration, this new book offers help with planning the project, getting the right look and actually assembling that custom bike you've dreamed about for years. Three start-to-finish sequences show not just how the best bikes are bolted together, but how the unique one-off gas tanks are shaped and then covered with candy brandywine paint.

Coupling perfection with his drive for innovation, Paul has brought Bare Knuckle Choppers to the forefront of the American custom motorcycle scene, building numerous award-winning bikes and earning features in every major American motorcycle magazine.

In How to Build Choppers, Bobbers, Café Racers, Street Trackers, and Other Custom Motorcycles, Wideman offers the first complete step-by-step fabrication manual for the hands-on DIY custom motorcycle builder. Where other books have spent too much time focused on only the bare-bones basics, or been more concerned with celebrity than actually building a bike, Wideman’s manual is the first and only fully illustrated, fully informative how-to guide all the way through: from conception and design to the fabrication of a complete motorcycle. And he doesn’t stop at just one or even a few types of machine—with a book title that’s true to its word, you’ll learn how to build traditional choppers, bobbers, café racers, street trackers, and many more, along with the finer points of materials, tools, applications, mounting systems, and other motorcycle accessories. Anyone can go buy a bike . . . it takes a real enthusiast, and a book that keeps up, to make one.

Whether it's a big-bore, high-end custom sportbike you're after, or a naked, bare knuckles streetfighting drag racer, this book has the goods for getting you there. In three different scenarios, the nation's top builders give blow-by-blow instructions for completely rebuilding three popular streetbikes -- from performance modifications and exhaust systems to flawless finishes and detail work. Focusing on highly customized Hayabusa drag bikes, including a slammed and lowered Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa, John Dantzler of the Charlotte, North Carolina, shop Two Wheel Customs outlines the suspension and engine modifications that the serious street and quarter-mile racer can make. He takes a salvaged, late-model four-cylinder street machine and transforms it into the kind of machine that both professional stunt riders and corner-carving enthusiasts favor. Next, author Mike Seate covers the details on constructing and installing popular modifications -- everything from engine crash guards and wheelie bars to motocross-style handlebars and bikini fairings -- while stunt riders and streetfighter builders from the United States and Europe weigh in with tips and advice. Last but not least, the builders at Wisconsins Patrick's Performance and South Carolina's Coastal Motorcycles provide a step-by-step account of the construction of two high-end custom sportbikes -- transforming a Yamaha YZF R-1 and a Suzuki GSX-R 1000 into the kind of machines that are eye-popping everywhere-on the streets or on the motorcycle show circuit.

This is the kind of fabrication that is safe if you apply common sense to its use. I wouldn't put a 1,000-hp ... custom motorcycle. It's safe for amateur fabrication because it's a non-critical item—an air tank for the bike's air horns.
