Item description for How to Build a Custom Sport Bike by Beau Allen Pacheco...
The age of the sport bike is here. For a large group of young and middle aged riders, the right bike is a high performance machine from Japan or Europe. And for most of those riders, the old adage applies, a little too much horsepower is almost enough. Obtaining more power from these machines often means the addition of turbochargers and nitrous oxide systems. How to Build a Custom Sport Bike from Wolfgang Publications provides step-by-step photos taken in professional shops that document the installation of all the popular power-boosting systems currently on the market. Additional chapters document the construction of three very over-the-top sport bikes, built by some of the best-known builders in the aftermarket motorcycle industry. Those name long-time bike builder Arlen Ness, one of the best-known motorcycle builders in the world. High performance means high speed and that requires better brakes, a topic that deserves a chapter all its own in this new book from Wolfgang Publications. That same speed puts additional loads on the suspension, another topic that receives its own chapter in this very thorough examination of Sport Bike make-overs. The current breed of riders crave more than speed. Improving the aesthetics and adding a certain amount of bling takes up another chapter. Strategies include complete paint jobs, as well as the new graphics packages that make a visual make-over a one-day job.
