4.0 out of 5 stars Long Bikes Great Read, March 23 2004
For anyone curious about the how, where and why of the worldwide chopper phenomenon, you can't miss with this one. My sons and I have built several show-winning choppers over the years but there is insightful information and well-researched backgrounds on the history of choppers in Mike Seate's book we never dreamed of. How did Arlen Ness, Jesse James and Indian larry get their start as motorcycle custom kings? It's all in here, along with some great old historical photos and hundreds of nifty, full-color shots from today's top chopper builders. A must have.

Suzuki, as this book lays out, changed all that by creating a fully-faired, sharp-handling motorcycle for the masses. There's plenty of cool factory drawings here as well… Read more
