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.
