In the old days all a person needed to build a killer custom motorcycle was a bike, a set of tools, a little know-how, and a creative vision. But with the rise of the high-dollar, haute moteur Gucci choppers, the true custom bike has gotten out of most riders’ reach, right? Dead wrong. In this book Jose de Miguel, a custom builder from way back, sets out to prove that those good old days never ended. In the clearest and simplest terms, he shows readers how they can turn odds and ends found around the shop into one-off motorcycle parts--and make a cheap, run-of-the mill custom build into a drop-dead show stopper. Following de Miguel’s lead, along with his straightforward illustrations, any resourceful owner with rudimentary mechanical skills, a basic tool kit, and--most importantly--a modicum of imagination can build the bobber of his dreams for less than the price of a new bike.

How to Build a Cheap Chopper was originally written to give chopper builders of the day a way to build cool, functional choppers for cheap money. Instead of building bikes out of a catalogue, readers were encouraged to combine a donor bike with an aftermarket frame. With a Sportster or Metric bike as a foundation, and a hard-tail frame, a complete bike could be assembled for less than $5,000, sometimes much less. Today, there's a whole new generation of riders looking to build simple, functional, unique choppers and bobbers based on everything from a 200cc Honda to the old classic Shovelhead or Panhead engines. No matter which drivetrain they choose, there remains the need to build bikes that work, bikes that are safe to ride, bikes that are fun! How to Build a Cheap Chopper- Revised starts with a look at the basics. The first chapters cover brakes, drivetrains, and frame geometry. The second half of the book shows readers how to actually assemble a bike. Four start-to-finish assemblies done at professional shops take the reader from a pile of parts to a finished, running motorcycle.

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.
