Custom-Bike-Life-book

There are plenty of coffee table books out there for gear heads and grease monkeys, but Custom Bike Life is the coffee table book for motorcycle lovers. Published by German imprint teNeues, Custom Bike Life is described as “a visual tour of a tradition that traces its roots back to the 1960s, when people yearning for freedom felt the need to take things into their own hands.” Their description is pretty self-explanatory, but broken down into its individual parts it means quite a few things. The 224-page hardcover tome is presented in German, English, and French and details everything from the Cafe Racer to the Scramble to the Chopper across big bike events like Wheels & Waves, Babes Ride Out, Glemseck 101 and the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. The compilation includes everything from photographic tours through the motorcycle scene’s best events to entertaining and informative text behind them lays out an entire journey through weekend events in California and adventure tours in the South of France.
