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.

All the tricks, tips, and techniques necessary to fabricate your own custom bike, from start to finish. Paul Wideman started Bare Knuckle Choppers nearly a decade ago, driven by his passion for motorcycle fabrication and his penchant for precision. Coupling perfection with his drive for innovation, Paul has brought Bare Knuckle Choppers to the forefront of the American custom motorcycle scene, building numerous award-winning bikes and earning features in every major American motorcycle magazine. Now, it’s your turn. In How to Build Choppers, Bobbers, Café Racers, Street Trackers, and Other Custom Motorcycles, Wideman offers the first complete step-by-step fabrication manual for the hands-on DIY custom motorcycle builder. Where other books have spent too much time focused on only the bare-bones basics, or been more concerned with celebrity than actually building a bike, Wideman’s manual is the first and only fully illustrated, fully informative how-to guide all the way through: from conception and design to the fabrication of a complete motorcycle. And he doesn’t stop at just one or even a few types of machine—with a book title that’s true to its word, you’ll learn how to build traditional choppers, bobbers, café racers, street trackers, and many more, along with the finer points of materials, tools, applications, mounting systems, and other motorcycle accessories. Anyone can go buy a bike . . . it takes a real enthusiast, and a book that keeps up, to make one.

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.

Scratch built motorcycles remain very popular. In order to simplify the process, many companies in the American V-twin aftermarket are selling kits. Three of these companies, Custom Chrome, Arlen Ness and Biker1s Choice, have excellent programs. All offer very complete kits that allow the builder to assemble a complete motorcycle without any additional purchases. All that1s missing is labor and paint. The book will document, with detailed photos and copy, the assembly from beginning to end, of three motorcycles from the firms mentioned above. Because of the technical nature of this book, there will be more images and less copy than in other Wolfgang Publication books. Each sequence will be illustrated by at least 200 images. Approximately 60% of these images will be in color. This book will also contain side-bars on tools and basic assembly techniques, all designed to aid the first time builder.

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.
