This book presents a step-by-step guide to building a West Coast Chopper's C.F.L. kit. Kit choppers are hot commodities. While few people can afford to buy a custom-built chopper from one of the high-end builders like Jesse James-bikes that often sell for $100,000 or more-many can afford to buy such bikes in kit form. Because of this, all the high-end builders sell their creations in kit form. For example, while Jesse James might build perhaps a dozen custom bikes per year, he sells hundreds of chopper kits. The same is true of any number of other builders like Matt Hotch, Cyril Huze, and Paul Yaffe. Authored by Mike Seate and featuring the photography of Joe Appel, this book is a step-by-step how-to guide for anyone building a kit chopper.

Review:

I've built choppers from scratch, and I've built a chopper kit bike. Both projects would have been much more successful had I had a book like this. This is a useful book whether you are building a kit bike from Jesse James or if you are building any other kit, or even if you are building a chopper from scratch. there is tons of useful information here, and the photos show you how not to make a lot of the mistakes I made. --American iron

This is a good book IF you are thinking about building this kind of motorcycle, a V-Twin 'hardtail' chopper. It has lots of pictures showing the assembly and the final painting. You should read this book BEFORE buying expensive &/or mis-matched parts. There is some listing of the parts' costs to give you some idea of what you can spend. --Kit Car Magazine

If you are building a kit bike using a WCC frame there is some useful information here. --Kit Bike

Synopsis:

Choosing and buying a kit, custom painting, and fabricating and buying components.
