Former professional race car driver Jose de Miguel began building custom motorcycles in his home town of San Juan, Puerto Rico from necessity. In San Juan a rider had to build his own custom bike because there were no custom shops at the time. Today he runs the thriving Caribbean Custom Motorcycle shop in San Juan, but he still relies on the resourcefulness and creativity that made his early builds possible.
"Each chapter explains, in a mentor-like style, how to approach each phase of your budget build in a realistic fashion. You are also given lots of little tips for working in the garage, things to be careful of and finding all those unique items for your ride.
