5.0 out of 5 stars The best motorcycle book -ever, 12 Oct 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ride: New Custom Motorcycles and Their Builders (Hardcover)
From the moment you pick up this weighty book, you instinctively know it's a tour de force.

It feels great to hold, the paper stock is premium quality and the photographs are beautiful. This is a classic book.

It showcases the abilities and incredible imagination of bike builders from all around the world and some designs will leave you breathless. Can people really build machines like this?

You can feel the love that went into every aspect of this book. If you love motorcycles from the beauty of what they are and can be, you have got to buy this book.

A work of art may be an overused term - but to me, this is what it is. Buy it. Now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 8 Oct 2013

This review is from: The Ride: New Custom Motorcycles and Their Builders (Hardcover)
If you follow BikeEXIF through social media or mailing list, this book is a addition to your library.
With many of the same stunning photos of the bikes that you see on the 'net, this book expands that by including many of the words from the builders themselves.
The one and only negative I will give is that the book did not come with a hard slipcover that is apparent in the advertising from BikeEXIF. It is a big heavy book, and really needs the slip cover to avoid damage and to keep it in prime condition.

This review is from: The Ride: New Custom Motorcycles and Their Builders (Hardcover)
Excellent large format coffee table book. Superbly photographed, should give any aspiring custom bike builder plenty of ideas. Could do with a little more technical detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply outstanding., 27 Dec 2013
This review is from: The Ride: New Custom Motorcycles and Their Builders (Hardcover)
If you want technical detail buy a Haynes manual.
If you want a book crammed from cover to cover with stunning photography of some of the classiest machines on the planet, buy this book.
It gives a fascinating insight into the world of some of today's most respected builders, exploring different ideals and paradigms of the builders and of the the global custom scene as a whole. This is a fantastic piece of advertising for a culture that had for too long given over to the garish and tastless (ie: American Chopper) and that has been revived- largely by people mentioned within- into what it is today.

If you are a lover of "Garage bikes & Steam Punk" what is there not to like? An unusual history of a genre fighting against the "Big Guns".
