Build Videos

If you rent or buy a fabrication video, post reviews here. Base your info on what you learned and if it was entertaining enough to keep you watching. If you are selling these videos... do it somewhere else.

Hey guys! Which one of these videos should I get? I'm a first time builder and I want a video that'll really help. Which one would be worth my money?

SELF INTRODUCTION: Hello everyone. first of all a big thanks to "Dan the Man". Some of you know me from the previous (2) boards and some don't, so here goes. I have been a fabricator/welder for over 40 years now. Damn that's a helluva long time to do anything! Anyways, I have built literaly 100's of street rods, pro streeters, racecars, bikes and trikes over the years. Never made the headlines and never will. I do what I do because it is the love of my life.
I enjoy reading the posts on the forum and try to contribute when I can. I am sure that this will be every bit as good as the CBH forum, as we will have most of the same folks. Good luck and post a lot of pics!! Jim

Although video's may help some people to visualize things, you would be money ahead to buy Gary's CD's. I have never seen the video's you question, but there are video's by competant people in the industry, such as Ron Covell.

Depends on how you approach your build. Scratch building the whole shebang, getting a readymade frame and proceeding from there. How are you thinking of going at it.
Videos run the gamut and cover both sides of the street, easier to suggest videos if we have and idea.

SELF INTRODUCTION: I first found the chopperbuilders handbook back in 2004. Thanks to the board, and all its members, I was able to build My bike, and have ridden it 25,000 miles. I learned a lot, made some friends, and had a great time building it

SELF INTRODUCTION: I am not a bum. I'm a jerk. I once had wealth, power, and the love of a beautiful woman. Now I only have two things: my friends and... uh... my thermos. Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi.
