This book presents a step-by-step guide to building a West Coast Chopper's C.F.L. kit. Kit choppers are hot commodities. While few people can afford to buy a custom-built chopper from one of the high-end builders like Jesse James-bikes that often sell for $100,000 or more-many can afford to buy such bikes in kit form. Because of this, all the high-end builders sell their creations in kit form. For example, while Jesse James might build perhaps a dozen custom bikes per year, he sells hundreds of chopper kits. The same is true of any number of other builders like Matt Hotch, Cyril Huze, and Paul Yaffe. Authored by Mike Seate and featuring the photography of Joe Appel, this book is a step-by-step how-to guide for anyone building a kit chopper.

All hell breaks loose... Little Bang, Texas, when two citizens are found shot to death in their luxury cars, each with one hand missing — chopped off! One victim is the wife of TexNext Industries CEO Gideon Moore; the other is Moore’s chief financial officer Frank Winckelmann. As reported by Gazette city editor John Wiltsey, the tragedies first appear to implicate Moore, a businessman who is already in serious professional and marital trouble. But The Chopper Case, as it is known locally, soon becomes the epicenter of further fatalities and mysteries which involve a surprising number of logical suspects — beautiful divorcees, mistresses, athletes, executives, rogue cops, private eyes, high tech engineers. If the closing chapters of Lewis Kornfeld’s ingenious fast-paced novel lead you to believe its multiple manhunts and torrid love affairs just fade away without certifiable denouements...well, you might be right. But then again, you might be terribly wrong! • Longtime president of Radio Shack and father of the first personal computer to be widely retailed nationally (the TRS-80 in 1977), Lewis Kornfeld turned to authoring after retiring as vice chairman of the then parent corporation, Tandy Corp. His first book, To Catch a Mouse, Make a Noise Like a Cheese, a best-selling primer on advertising and marketing, was published by Prentice-Hall, later by the University of Texas Press and The Summit Group. He has B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of Denver, and an honorary (LHD) degree from Boston University. A native of Boston MA, and a WWII Marine Corps officer, he lives in Fort Worth TX.

'Crims and screws agree on one thing: that the people who run prisons wouldn't know if a tram was up them unless you rang the bell.' How to Shoot Friends and Influence People, Mark Brandon 'Chopper' Read's third book, was written behind bars as Chopper faced life in prison for a shooting he claimed he didn't commit. For this book, Chopper obtained confidential and extensive prison files relating to him under the Freedom of Information Act. These included psychological assessments, plus prison classification and discipline records. They provide a fascinating insight into how this maverick criminal dealt with the prison system over two decades. Featuring the infamous story of Tanya and Eddy, Chopper's coming-of-age yarn from his 18th birthday, plus reflections on the end of his long-term relationship and what it's like to be the most famous author-in-residence at Risdon Prison, this third volume of his memoirs contains more tales of the criminal underworld told in Chopper's unique style.
