About this product
- DescriptionFerrari built their first racing cars by hammering sheet metal over tree-trunks; why should the same principle t apply to Bikers? Sheet Metal Fabrication Basics is designed to provide how-to help for fabricators working at home and in small shops. Whether the goal is a hand-made air dam or a one-off air cleaner cover, the project can be done without expensive power tools. With help from fabricators like Rob Roehl, tinman for bike-builders Donnie Smith, the book documents the creation of numerous simple shapes, made mostly with hammer and dolly, hand-operated shirker-stretcher, and various mallets. Some objects are made from more than one piece, thus the book includes a section on welding both aluminum and steel - altogether a unique guide for any biker!
- Author BiographyBest known for motorcycle titles like How to Build a Chopper and How to Build a Cheap Chopper, how-to-author Tim Remus is also the author of custom painting books like Advanced Airbrush Art and fabrication titles like Ultimate Sheet Metal Fabrication. Today the former auto mechanic runs a small publishing company, Wolfgang Publications, located in Stillwater, Minnesota. Some of his personal projects include a recently finished 250-tire Softail and an old Henry J hot rod he says may never be finished.
