DESCRIPTION:

Bobber? Lyle Landstrom Ok, Some books should be judged by their cover. This is one of them. By the books own definition, bobbers are "a machine that had things cut or bobbed off." It then goes on to explain using a stock machine as a starting point. The bike on the cover, like about 80% of the bikes in this book, does not use a stock frame or front end as a starting point. Many of them are aftermarket raked and stretched frames using overlength front ends and mag wheels. Clearly not bobbers. This book should be called Art of the Custom Motorcycle. It is a d. "Not Bad" according to C J. Henderson. Generally the photography is excellent, and covers a good cross section of Bobbers, from the real art of Cyril Huze and Indian Larry to unknows.The biggest downside is that the technical data sheets for each bike are inconsistant in the ammount of information provided, and some of the text is incorrect. It does however achieve its goal of being a companion book to Tom Zimberoffs "Art of the Chopper" and likewise should find a place on your coffee table as it did mine.. "Art of the Bobber" according to J. A. WALKER. Art of the BobberThe book arrived quickly and I was delighted with it - a real 'coffee table' book, well produced with many great photos and details about early-style custom motorcycles - anyone who likes custom motorcycles will enjoy it.John Walker

Born to Ride

At some point ,an enterprising rider decided to permanently remove the hinged rear portion of the fender - shortening the fender like the "bobbed" hair cuts popular during those days - or so the theory goes. The tradition of stripping down to a bike's bare essence and celebrating its simpler forms - making a bobber - was begun. With over 200 exclusive photographs of the most cutting-edge bobbers, biographies of the men and women who build them, and inside stories on top shops like Indian Larry, Von Dutch Kustoms, Orange County Choppers, Arlen Ness, Mitch Bergeron, and more. This book captures the rebel spirit of the ultimate custom bike as never before.Publisher's Note: This edition includes a poster on the reverse of the book's jacket.. Before choppers, there was the bobber. When American-brand motorcycle owners needed to change their rear tires decades ago, the rear fender featured a hinge near its center that would flip up to make room for the tire to be removed. As these lean, mean machines come roaring back onto the scene in a big way, this book offers a look at where the bobber came from, where it’s going, and what it’s about
