All the tricks, tips, and techniques necessary to fabricate your own custom bike, from start to finish. Paul Wideman started Bare Knuckle Choppers nearly a decade ago, driven by his passion for motorcycle fabrication and his penchant for precision. 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. Now, it’s your turn. 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.
