Brit Chops? Bring it on!
Many books have been written about British bikes and their racing history, but no one has devoted an entire book solely to the British-only custom motorcycle, and its chopper, cruiser, bobber and trike scene ... until now.


This book takes a look at some of the fantastic British motorcycle-based custom bikes around the globe. From the old to the new, it shows that when it comes to customising British bikes, things go much further than the simple chopped Triumph parallel twin. A celebration of all things ‘custom Brit,’ it is the only book devoted entirely to the British custom motorcycle, revealing the innovative, fresh approach to British-based custom bike building. Whether you’re a Brit-bike devotee, or a fan of the custom motorcycle scene in general, this book is for you.

Independent Reviews

A welcome look at the some of the best British custom bikes ever produced ... A lovely book.

100% Biker Seal of Approval ... I'm pleased to recommend 'British Custom Motorcycles' ... a full page photo of Spirit of Endeavour's engine cries out to be snipped out and framed! ... well worth a perusal.
100% Biker Magazine

Follow[s] an excellent format which is hard to criticise because it works so well. Excellent photography is backed up by concise text and the quality of the presentation and layout works well ... once again it gets top marks for showing that not all custom machines need to be based around an American V-twin. So this latest tome is definitely worth having on the book shelf to complete the series on unusual custom machines from around the world that showcase innovative engineering and design.

Essential for British bike fans.
