What is a Metallic Print? An Endura Metallic print is a unique imaging paper from Eastman Kodak. Photographically printed, the subtle metallic surface produces a depth and color richness unmatched by any other process. A subtle 3D effect is discernible in many of the images. Giclee printing is swell, but for engine pictures, Metallic is the only way to go. Also, print longevity is an impressive 100 years. Metallic prints will not disappoint.

In The Build, Robert Hoekman Jr. compiles insights from today's best builders to help you plot out your own beautiful beast. Loaded with photos, The Build features firsthand advice from the masters of moto design, including John Ryland (Classified Moto), Alan Stulberg (Revival Cycles), Jared Johnson (Holiday Customs), Jarrod Del Prado (DP Customs), and the legendary Max Hazan (Hazan Motorworks).
The Build is as much a 192-page motorcycle art book as it is a blueprint to building the perfect custom bike. The book is the bible of custom motorcycle design, starting with an explanation of all the different bike styles, and then moving into a concise, easy-to-read guide that takes you from finding a donor bike to figuring out how to alter the lines to your liking. The book also covers selecting and building parts, painting and finishing, and what kind of performance modifications might be appropriate.

Beautiful, powerful, exotic, brutal, and quick are just a few of the adjectives that these machines still conjure up … and not just among those of us old enough to remember them. A generation of younger riders has heard countless stories about these legendary bikes from fellow cyclists and magazine reports.

To answer these questions, Roland Brown, one of the world’s top motorcycle journalists, rides the best of these bikes and shares his impressions.

Or maybe you just want to find out how these bikes changed the world in the ’70s and paved the way for today’s machines.
