Advanced Custom Motorcycle Assembly & Fabrication
What started in the mid-90s when a few people decided to build stock Softails from aftermarket parts because they couldn't buy one at the dealer, has evolved into a full-blown industry. Today, every small town has a Chopper or Custom bike shop and every cable TV channel has a Biker Build-Off series. No longer content to build copies of stock motorcycles, today's builder wants a motorcycle that's longer, lower, and sexier than anything approved by a factory design team. Wolfgang Publications and Tim Remus were there at the very beginning of the trend with their Ultimate V-Twin Motorcycle book. Today they're back with their new book, Advanced Custom Motorcycle Assembly & Fabrication. Part catalog, part service manual, and part inspiration, this new book offers help with planning the project, getting the right look and actually assembling that custom bike you've dreamed about for years. Three start-to-finish sequences show not just how the best bikes are bolted together, but how the unique one-off gas tanks are shaped and then covered with candy brandywine paint.

Advanced Custom Motorcycle Painting
The subject of custom painting is always important for the simple reason that motorcycle owners can’t leave their bikes alone. Bike owners want a custom paint job, and they want to learn how to apply custom paint in their own small shop, without having to pay someone else two to five thousand dollars for a candy job or really nice set of flames. This new book is the only how-to-paint book that includes specific directions and tips from Dave Perewitz.

Advanced Pinstripe Art: How-to Secrets of the Masters
Since the days of Von Dutch, hot rod and motorcycle enthusiasts have used pinstripes both as artwork in its own right, and as a compliment to a flame or graphic paint job. Interest in pinstriping, both how-to and as an art form, continues to grow. The best way to learn something is from the person who does it all day long. Advanced Pinstripe Art presents the work of 12 well-known pinstripe artists. Each chapter presents a start-to-finish project done by one artist. These photo sequences take the viewer from the initial sketch to the finished design. Text explains the why of good pinstriping. Why use a particular brush, a certain paint, an unusual method. Quotes from the artists are plentiful. Advanced Pinstripe Art is designed to duplicate, as much as possible, the experience of spending a day learning first hand how to pinstripe from some of the best artists in the business.

BMW K100 Series Performance Portfolio 1983-1993
The first generation of K-bikes offered unique qualities and decent performance although there was excessive engine vibration, underdamped suspension and a hyperactive final-drive. These problems were addressed in 1991 with the updated K100RS which had a 16-valve cylinder head, upgraded brakes and reworked frame and suspension. The RS had serious horsepower conferred by the hot-rodded engine that went into the K1100LT. 1992 saw another revolution with the K1100RS. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, specification & technical data, long term reports, new model introductions. Models include: K100, K100RS, K100RT, K100LT, K100RS ABS, K1100RT, K1100LT, K1100RS, and K1100 Limited edition.

Composite Materials Bible: Composite Garage Series
The modern world we live in often requires components made from materials that are stronger and lighter than the more common materials of steel, aluminum, and wood. Today, everything from bicycle frames to aircraft components are made from composite materials such as Kevlar and Carbon Fiber. Unlike those other materials, composite components don't rust or rot, and they won't be dented by a minor impact. With the growing interest in these new high-tech materials, there are more and more individuals looking for help in building their own components from composites. While most of us assume that building from composites requires special skills and tooling found only in specialist shops and well-equipped industrial facilities, nothing could be further from the truth. Professor of Industrial Design, well-known author John Wanberg uses 176 pages and more than 400 images to explain and illustrate the techniques and tools that readers need to make their own components from composite materials. Whether it's a simple piece that requires no mold or a more elaborate fabrication project that requires both a mold and vacuum bagging, all the necessary how-to information is contained in this new book from Wolfgang Publications. This new book from John Wanberg combines materials from four previous books plus adds a wealth of new material on the latest trends and techniques in the world of high-tech composite materials. All of the projects and techniques included in this 176-page book are aimed at individuals and small shops.
