If you've ever thought of getting your hands dirty on a custom motorcycle of your very own, Robert Hoekman Jr.'s wouldn't be a bad place to start: 

"The urge has found you daydreaming more than once. The urge to define, bend, shape, fabricate, invent, shove, break. To slide your leg over the seat you finally got back from the leather shop. To twist back the throttle grip you wrapped yourself. To lunge into the darkness of an open highway on a creation all your own. More than a motorcycle, this is about your identity. It’s about building something as unique as you are.

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 DelPrado (DP Customs), and the legendary Max Hazan (Hazan Motorworks)."
