Description

A great chopper is not built - it is created. It begins as the seed of an idea germinating in the mind of its creator. Bit by bit, the builder brings the machine to life, raking and stretching the frame, fabricating fenders and a gas tank, applying exquisite paint, sculpting something that lives and breathes on its own. Choppers, one of the most enduring symbols from the 1960s, are more prevalent than ever. First published in 2003 to great acclaim, and reissued here in a glorious deluxe edition, Art of the Chopper profiles twenty of today's top chopper builders. Through an extensive colour photo gallery of each builder's creations, author and photographer Tom Zimberoff provides an in-depth analysis of that builder's design philosophies and unique style. Art of the Chopper celebrates these timeless machines and the artists who build them.
