Overview

When a motorcycle has been built from the ground up, stripped of anything not needed for speed, power, and striking looks, and draped in rich colors and chrome, it has been transformed into a chopper. What was once considered an outlaw ride has now become a luxury item and a mainstream obsession. In "Choppers: Heavy Metal Art, author Mike Seate explores the many styles of choppers and bobbers and the builders behind them. The book is divided into several sections based on style or type of chopper, with each section devoted to the builders who follow a similar style and philosophy. Some builders are established names in their field, while others are up-and-comers rocking the chopper world with their far-out ideas and new spins on a classic style. Photographer Michael Lichter, who has photographed choppers for "Easyriders and several other magazines for nearly three decades, provides stunning studio images of the featured machines as well as portraits of their creators. Raked, lowered, and tricked out, Choppers: "Heavy Metal Art belongs to anyone who loves chopper style!

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Booklist, April 1, 2007

“In their debut series for young people, the go-to publishers for automotive enthusiasts gets it right. These lavishly illustrated single-subject books, which include ‘Corvette’ and ‘Chopper,’ will be hot commodities with younger kids as well as car-obsessed teens.”

Note:  The series is one of ten selected by the American Library Association as the year’s top non-fiction picks launched in the last 12 months.

American Authors Association Web site, May 2006Reviewed by the Associate President“I personally recommend this book for all young male readers and those who are still young at heart! Choppers is given the American Authors Association’s highest rating for young readers – FIVE STARS!”

MPN, August 2006

“Targeted at readers ages 10 and older, Choppers and Harley-Davidson dish up all the details on the coolest bikes on the planet in a colorful, informative, easy-to-read format that’s exciting and engaging for young readers (dad might even pick it up, too!).

 

“In Choppers, bike builder and author Mike Seate immerses kid in the history of choppers and bobber with this book full of fun facts and wonderful full color photos."

 

Booklist Aug. 1, 2006

“Photos on slick, heavy paper in gorgeous full color, typical of Motorbooks publications, will provide more than enough incentive to lure automotive junkies to the new Drive.Ride.Fly series. But there’s more to the books than pictures, there’s also enough intriguing, concisely present product/company history to appeal to sports car and motorcycle fans well beyond the book’s target audience … There’s little question that this will whet the appetite for more, more, more.”

    A little disappointed

    I felt this book should have been called 'A Companion to Discovery Channel's Motorcycle Mania 2' There just wasn't enough variety in the bikes and interviews to say this is a full history of choppers. It's more of a bandwagon jumpin' kind of book.

    'Choppers' is well thought out and put together!

    I thought 'Choppers' was very well put together and found it quite entertaining and informative. I especially liked the White Bobber Old School bike from N.M., that was so tastefully done!!!
