There are probably more Sportsters on the street than any other model of Harley-Davidson. Despite the popularity of the Harley-Davidson Sportster, there are no current guides to help owners with a hop-up or customizing project. This new book from Wolfgang includes two, start-to-finish customizing sequences, along with hands-on examples of engine hop-ups.
About the Author
Todd Zallaps began his foray into the motorcycle world with the trade of a riding lawnmower for a basket-case 1964 Harley-Davidson Sportster XLCH chopper. He restored it and sold to finance another Sportster project. This began a cycle of Sportster-specific rebuilding/restoration that maintains his interest to this day.
Though Todd maintains a job as an editor for an academic journal during the day, he still manages to find time to further his interest in Sportsters. Today, Todd prefers to fabricate Sportsters that are both modern and functional. That way, the customer can enjoy a trouble-free product that requires minimal maintenance.
