Whether you're building a chopper, a bobber, or a customized bagger--or simply adding personality to a stock cruiser--you want your bike to stand out.  It is, after all, an original.  For inspiration or direction, from the big idea to the finest detail, look no further than this book.  With hundreds of examples of what builders and painters and passionate owners have done with their bikes, Custom Motorcycles is a great way to get started--or to fine-tune a concept.  Custom front ends, tanks, paint, frames, wheels, and more--every inch of a motorcycle can be customized, and every step of the process is covered in this book.  Packed with over 700 photos and detailed information on any problem you might encounter, the book is the first and most valuable tool that anyone customizing a bike should have.

Since the early 1980s, Michael Lichter has been photographing custom motorcycles for the pages of Easyriders magazine--often hanging from the beds of pickup trucks during rainstorms or photographing packs of bikers in such places as Daytona Beach, Florida, and Sturgis, South Dakota. He has written and provided photography for a number of books, and he lives and works in Boulder, Colorado.

Howard Kelly is the Communications Manager for S&S Cycle, the leader in V-twin performance engines and components. He was editor at Hot Bike magazine for over eight years and at Street Chopper magazine for five years. Kelly lives in Onalaska, Wisconsin with his wife Marcia, their two dogs, one cat, his customized Dyna, and a Honda super-moto bike.
