Default Legends: The very best custom bikes . . .

. . . from the pages of 100% Biker

Thanks to television programmes such as Discovery Channel's ‘American Chopper’, just about everyone knows what a custom motorcycle is.
What they may not know, though, is the words 'custom motorcycle' don’t necessarily mean 'chopper'. Looking back through custom biking history, what the guys who started the scene called a 'chopper' isn't quite the same thing as what we associate the word with today.

We here at 100% Biker are aware that a custom bike doesn’t have to be a chopper and so we have put together this book to show you some of the best custom bikes from our long history. These bikes are a celebration of the skill and diversity of the custom bike builder.



Featuring over 30 custom bikes from the pages of 100% Biker and only £7.99 for the print or digital editions.

How can it be from the '70s, mate, when the mag didn't start until the 2000s?

Yeah, sorry mate. I`m guilty of not reading it correctly again. Still should be a good read. Look forward to it.

Default £8

Bloody hell £8

I'd say in this day and age.

Bloody Hell £8 what a bargain!

All that info, Bikes, birds, photo's, inspiration, artwork, possible future investment, (In 2055 they will be asking for 2011.) Our possible future builders may start their dreams from this mag?? Help to keep a good mag in profit,etc, etc, Could keep on going, but i'll stop here.

And less than 4 pints??? Bargain!! plus it's still here, long after the smell of piss has left the building.

Oh and iv'e got "no" connection with the mag.
