Description

Many books have been published about Japanese motorcycles, but none has focused exclusively on the Japanese motorcycle-based chopper, bobber, trike, and quad custom bike scene ... until now. Featuring stunning photography, this is a great book for Japanese bike fans, and fans of the custom bike scene in general.
Synopsis

Japanese Custom Motorcycles is the first book to solely cover the evolution of the Japanese cruiser into metric custom.
The growing trend of customising metric bikes into chopper, bobber et al – be they high-end bikes, garage built beauties, or more recent Japanese cruisers – is superbly illustrated with examples from all over the world.
Featuring owner’s stories and technical descriptions, Japanese Custom Motorcycles is guaranteed to interest metric bike fans and members of the custom scene alike.
From singles, twins, triples, fours, and sixes – see the ‘custom’ side of Japanese motorcycles.
Independent Reviews

The book is beautifully Illustrated throughout, showing close up detail of quality chroming, superb custom paintwork and some amazing engraving.
We found the book quite inspiring and it makes folk want to have a go at building their own board track racer based on an early Indian, similar to the one featured.
An interesting book that will appeal to many a biker and enthusiast.
Classic Motorcycle Mechanics

Once again Cloesen has done a marvellous job in finding various machines that fail to conform to the norm ... Excellent photography as ever is backed up by concise text giving you the basics of the machines construction etc ... like all the others in [this] series it is well written, well laid out and well -illustrated and well worth having on the bookshelf to remind yourself that the greatest thing about motorcycling is the diversity that exists within.

Cracking photos and a huge range and variety of customisations, we particularly enjoyed the retro cafe racers. Lots of inspiration and a must for any Japanese custom bike enthusiast!

The nostalgic appeal for those of us who grew up in the early custom bike scene is strong ... a hardback coffee table book with class.
