ATOMIC ZOMBIE'S BICYCLE BUILDER'S BONANZA

SUPERBIKES (FOR STINGY BUDGETS)

For bicycle lovers, tinkerers, and inventors, this dream resource offers hours of fun, creativity, and adventure. If you have standard workshop tools, Atomic Zombie's Bicycle Builder's Bonanza provides everything else you need to create cool custom bicycles on a shoestring budget. Youll find exciting plans for choppers, low racers, tallbikes, recumbents, tandems, and others that defy description.

You'll learn how easy — and cheap — it can be to build machines with names like Marauder, Sky Cycle, and Hammerhead — to construct bicycles whose profiles will make you gasp — and to make your own recumbent bike that can speed along at 80 kph on the flats. This book shows you how to build them all, complete with photos and detailed instructions!

Written by long-time bike hobbyist and inventor Brad Graham, founder and host of the atomiczombie.com bicycle builder's Web site, and creator of the world's tallest bike, this value-packed, heavily illustrated manual offers an exciting range of resources from complete custom bike plans to details on working with tools and customizing bikes you already own. Look inside for all the help you need with:

* Getting parts for free, or almost free

* High-speed recumbent low racer with hydraulic disc brakes

* A two-headed winter-ready mountain bike

* A bicycle so tall that you have to duck under power lines

* Ultralong fork choppers with loads of attitude

* A rugged all-terrain mountain tandem

* Pedal-powered vehicles that seem to defy the laws of physics

* Customizing details, such as getting a smooth paint job and removing rust from old chrome

* And much, much more!
