Synopsis: Before choppers, there was the bobber. When American-brand motorcycle owners needed to change their rear tires decades ago, the rear fender featured a hinge near its center that would flip up to make room for the tire to be removed. At some point ,an enterprising rider decided to permanently remove the hinged rear portion of the fender - shortening the fender like the "bobbed" hair cuts popular during those days - or so the theory goes. The tradition of stripping down to a bike's bare essence and celebrating its simpler forms - making a bobber - was begun.

As these lean, mean machines come roaring back onto the scene in a big way, this book offers a look at where the bobber came from, where it’s going, and what it’s about. With over 200 exclusive photographs of the most cutting-edge bobbers, biographies of the men and women who build them, and inside stories on top shops like Indian Larry, Von Dutch Kustoms, Orange County Choppers, Arlen Ness, Mitch Bergeron, and more. This book captures the rebel spirit of the ultimate custom bike as never before.Publisher's Note: This edition includes a poster on the reverse of the book's jacket.

From the Inside Flap:

The old-school look is back. Gone are the stretched-out, chromed-up, candy-coated luxury choppers that cost more than the garage they’re stored in and only saw action twice a year for fear of scuffing the footpegs.

The world of custom motorcycles begins and ends with the bobber. Sleek, fast, light, and dripping with character and personality, these bikes are built to ride. With classic 1940s and 50s styling, bobbed fenders, stock frames, vintage parts, and old-school paint jobs, the bobbers of today are using new techniques and technology to pay homage to the riders and builders who started it all.

Authors and designers Spencer Drate and Judith Salavetz have compiled the photography and stories of 49 hot bobber builders, from famous names like Dave Perewitz, the late Indian Larry, and Arlen Ness, to small neighborhood shops attracting major national attention. With essays on the history of the bobber and the future of the industry from noted motorcycle journalists and insiders, The Art of the Bobber is a treasury of classic and modern custom bobbers at your fingertips.
