Meet the Author

Best known for mototcycle titles like How to Build a Chopper and How to Build a Cheap Chopper, how-to-author Tim Remus is also the author of custom painting books like Advanced Airbrush Art and fabrication titles like Ultimate Sheet Metal Fabrication. Today the former auto mechanic runs a small publishing company, Wolfgang Publications, located in Stillwater, Minnesota. Some of his personal projects include a recently finished 250-tire Softail and an old Henry J hot rod he says may never be finished.

Chitwood became familiar with Triumphs as a young racer. Like most young racers, Gary was rider, mechanic and tuner. From fixing his own bike Gary went on to the repair of Triumphs that belonged to other riders and eventually the business of restoring old Triumphs to better-than-new condition. Much of Gary’s work can be seen in the extensive collection of Triumph collector Bobby Sullivan. From engine overhaul to perfect paint, there isn’t anything about a Triumph motorcycle that Gary Chitwood doesn’t understand and hasn’t done. Which makes him the perfect person to co-author a book on the restoration of Triumph motorcycles.
