Building a classic bobber from the ground up is many a custom bike fan's dream. In the old days, all one needed to build a killer custom motorcycle was a donor bike, a set of tools, a little know-how, and a creative vision.
But with the rise of high-dollar choppers and superstar builders, a true custom bobber is beyond the average household budget, right? Not so fast.
Any resourceful rider with basic skills, a garage, the right tools, and some creativity can build the hot bobber of their dreams.
Author and builder Jose de Miguel shows the reader how to build a killer bobber for much less than the price of a new motorcycle. From choosing a donor bike and diagnosing engine and transmission problems to choosing a knockout paint scheme and fabricating parts, de Miguel takes the complicated work of a custom build and makes it easy to understand.
Drawing on years of experience, de Miguel shows the reader how to turn cast off bikes, parts, and odds and ends into one-off custom elements, turning a run-of-the-mill custom build into a drop-dead showstopper.
This book includes over 280 color photos, with step-by-step guides to the most complicated projects. How to Build a Bobber on a Budget is the perfect guide for anyone craving their own unique ride at a bargain price.
