Provides information on how to design, build, and customize motorcycles.
Like the Basics book, this one includes three, start-to-finish bike assemblies. Leaning towards earlier H-D powerplants - Knuckleheads, Pans, Shovels and Ironhead Sportys - built on a budget by real people with a little grease under their fingernails.
The one job that even the best mechanics avoid is wiring. Those worries are now over with help from the revised edition of "Advanced Custom Motorcycle Wiring." This book uses Chapter One to cover the basics of DC electricity and Chapter Two to explain batteries, starters, and alternators. It goes on to cover the schematics and factory harnesses for both early and late-model Harley-Davidsons. Jeff Zielinski, owner of NAMZ Custom Cycle Products and wiring harness and component designer, is the author of this revised Motorcycle Wiring book. In addition to a discussion of factory Harley-Davidson wiring harnesses, Jeff describes at length the various harness options available to a person building a custom bike. Is it better to build a harness from scratch, or install a ready-made harness kit? What's the easiest way to route all those wires through the top frame tube and the handle bars? These questions and many more are answered in this book. Inside you will find over 350 color photos and wiring illustrations spread across 144 pages. Everything from basic chopper wiring diagrams and schematics to complex factory schematics - as well as a complete, start-to-finish harness install sequence.
A unique study of the names and bikes of the world's most famous, innovative and legendary makers of contemporary bespoke bicycles.
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.
Kevin Baas begins the second edition of his How to Build an Old Skool Bobber book with a little history, the history of bike building at home, as seen through the eyes of a young man watching his Vietnam-Vet father build a chopper at home in 1970. In his father’s eyes, and Kevin’s as well, the engine and frame should to be old skool - and genuine Harley-Davidson if possible - but the rest can and should come from swap meets, or the sweat of your own two hands. Kevin lays out the basics of bike building, starting first with the ideal components: which engine, which frame, and the differences in the various years. Next, things to watch out for when buying old parts, and how to fix the parts you do buy. Additional chapters describe brake systems, both early and late, tires and wheels, and frame geometry. Four complete start-to-finish bike assemblies round out this hands-on book.
