Item description for How to Build a Kit Bike by Tim Remus...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about How to Build a Kit Bike?

Kit bike  Feb 9, 2008
I built a kit bike a while back. Without this book it would have been a tough go as there is no such thing as an instrution manuel. Just a big box of parts.(500+-).
Good info for Harley novice.  Jan 7, 2007
There was some good info in this book. It shows you how to line up the primary, and some basic stuff like that. I wish they would have covered the swingarm a little better. I pressed the bearings in from the wrong direction.
How To Build a Kit Bike  Jul 14, 2006
I did not get a lot out of this book. I found it uninformative and
and to general in the info provided. Not very impressed with this author. It was not much not much help to me.
A Place To Start  Oct 18, 2005
Being a shade tree wrench and finding my self interested in maybe building a Hawg I picked up this book. If your looking for detailed information, I'd move on. Otherwise, this is a pretty good overview of what to expect painted in pretty broad strokes. There are some useful tidbits that would probably make it worth the price for anyone who has never touched a bike before. He goes through a number of builds...all choppers. It can be a bit repetitive in places but, he gets a little more indepth on diffrent subjests from build to build. I think it would have been better if he had stuck to one build and just covered the alternatives.
