How to Build an Old Skool Bobber: Build Your Own Bobber or by Kevin Baas,Timothy Remus

By Kevin Baas,Timothy Remus

Kevin Baas starts the second one variation of his easy methods to construct an oldschool Bobber e-book with a bit historical past, the historical past of motorcycle construction at domestic, as obvious in the course of the eyes of a tender guy looking at his Vietnam-Vet father construct a chopper at domestic in 1970. In his father’s eyes, and Kevin’s besides, the engine and body should still to be old school - and real Harley-Davidson if attainable - however the leisure can and may come from switch meets, or the sweat of your personal arms.

Kevin lays out the fundamentals of motorcycle construction, beginning first with definitely the right elements: which engine, which body, and the variations within the a number of years. subsequent, issues to monitor out for while deciding to buy previous elements, and the way to mend the components you do purchase. extra chapters describe brake platforms, either early and past due, tires and wheels, and body geometry. 4 whole start-to-finish motorcycle assemblies around out this hands-on book.

You don’t desire a lot of cash and also you don’t want a catalog packed with glossy billet components. you simply desire an engine and a body, the burning wish to construct a motorbike that’s really your personal, and a replica of Kevin’s new e-book: the best way to construct an old school Bobber, moment edition.
