“The $40 coffee-table tome has a bit of company history, a foreword by Jay Leno and 223 pages of beautiful photography with profiles on each builder.” – Cycle World
From the Back Cover
To celebrate 50 years as America’s premier V-twin engine manufacturer, S&S Cycle commissioned 50 top bike builders from around the world to construct custom motorcycles powered by S&S engines for a gala motorcycle show at S&S world headquarters in Wisconsin. S&S Cycle Presents Today’s Top Custom Bike Builders showcases the bikes built for the event through the photography of master custom-bike photographer Michael Lichter.
Plus 40 more of the world’s most talented custom motorcycle builders.

lots of different kinds of bikes, all built around the s&s motors..short bios on the builders..great pictures.
its a good edition to the library.
It's unfair to generalize yet this volume provides a glimpse into the different aesthetic styles and engineering approaches of today's custom builders. Bertrand Dubet, Kendall Johnson, Jesse Rooke, Aldo Querio Gianetto, and other less familiar names take their place beside Chica, Paul Cox, Kris Krome, the Teutels, and the team at Redneck Engineering. Naturally, Arlen Ness is included, but Cory and Zach who have too long been overshadowed by the creations of the (their) big daddy of customs are also showcased.
One commendable feature of the book is that it doesn't mention that the 50th anniversary project was a competitive build-off with judging by the builders, S&S personnel, media, attendees at the 2008 exhibition show, and by Internet, nor does it include an index listing the winners or their prizes . The fifty bikes -and their builders--stand on their own merits and the reader is responsible for choosing their favorites.
The book is a delicious bit of fluff that has a luscious look and feel to the final product. I love well-crafted books, more so when the glossy pages are filled with photos of beautiful bikes.
