Motorcycle Dream GaragesBook - 2009
Motorcycle Dream Garages opens the doors to sixteen motorcycle palaces, among them a secret one in Chicago housing over one hundred rare bikes; a converted garage dedicated to Vincents in St. Paul; and a sampling of luxury motorcycle garages owned by racers and celebrities, such as Jay Leno.
You want to be on your motorcycle on the open road-but if you can't, then the next best place is the garage. Open the workshop doors to where old Triumphs, Hondas, and Ducatis are restored; wild customs and Harleys come to life; and friendships are built on beer, b.s., and bruised knuckles. This book takes you inside the most ultimate garages-from the old firehouse to the lavishly finished tin shed to the plain old two-car attached structure harboring the treasured bike while the family car sits outdoors. Motorcycle Dream Garages opens the doors to sixteen palaces for two-wheeled work and play, among them a secret one in Chicago housing over one hundred rare and collectible bikes at a location known only to members of an underground club; a converted garage dedicated to Vincents in St. Paul; a marble palace in Washington DC; and a sampling of luxury motorcycle garages owned by racers and celebrities, such as Jay Leno. Motorcycle Dream Garages is a "well written and beautifully photographed book. . . a two-wheeled treasure trove" (SPEED TV). It's "all about the coolest garages in existence. If you're a garage or motorcycle person, this is a must-read." ( Racer X Illustrated ).
