The keepers of motorcycle spaces have stories to tell. To create Motorcycle Dream Garages, author Lee Klancher traveled across North America to give readers an inside look at the homes of some legendary motorcycles and their well-known collectors. Many of these spaces have never been photographed for publication before, and a few are secret havens that would only allow access on the condition that the owners’ identities be kept secret. These anonymous hideouts include a large space in Southern California that houses a collection of exotic high-performance motorcycles, as well as a New York warehouse that is shared by an eclectic group of 10 motorcycle collectors and builders. The less-secretive garages encompass many great motorcycling stories, including Rising Wolf Garage, which housed the famous FDNY Dream Bike—the CB750 that was bought by a firefighter who was later killed in the September 11, 2001, World Trade Center attacks. Klancher also focuses his lens on the space where Chris Cosentino designed and built an innovative race chassis and later built a complete motorcycle for Moto2 competition in the FIM Grand Prix series. Other profiles include the garage of Hollywood stunt motorcycle rider and race champion John Hateley, the dining room that is home to the world’s most valuable motorcycle, and an $8 million place in the hometown of builder Roger Goldammer.
Interesting, but not as good as some of the other garage books.Published 8 days ago by John Adivari
Disappointed. Purchased in Kindle format for my iPad and found the photos small, with poor resolution. Didn't think the bikes were sufficiently emphasized either.Published 1 month ago by Julie Deschenes
What can I say: just a lof of fine pic and very interesting story's about some of the worlds best known garages. Not a work book, but good for night time reading.Published 7 months ago by Jens Didriksen

The photos and articles on each dream garage are excellent. The Garages themselves are most definitely a motorcyclist dream. These guys are some serious collectors. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Casey Johnson
