Impulsively, MatthewMoreA father and son build a legendary motorcycle and, along the way, reconstruct their relationship in this moving memoirWhen his father had a near-fatal heart attack and gave up the will to live, Matthew Biberman panicked. Impulsively, Matthew promised his father, an expert motorcycle mechanic, that they would build a Vincati motorcycle together.

The Loch Ness monster of motorcycles, a Vincati-half Vincent, half Ducati- had never been completed in North America. Building a Vincati was considered, at best, a fools errand- at worst, an expensive waste of motorcycle parts.But for nearly sixty years, Big Sid Biberman was the mechanic to see to refurbish and repair motorcycles, especially British-made Vincents.

If anyone could build a Vincati, it was Big Sid. Despite sharing his fathers passion for motorcycles, his son Matthew lacked Big Sids mechanical gift, gave up on tools, and became a Shakespearean scholar. As adults, father and son barely spoke. But after his fathers brush with death, Matthew vowed to learn the techniques that had made Big Sid a legend among bikers. Reminiscent of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Big Sids Vincati is an irresistible combination of step-by-step motorcycle construction mixed with a powerful story of fathers and sons, and shows not only how the Bibermans built their Vincati (which was featured in Cycle World and Classic Bike) but also how the two men reconstructed their relationship, one motorcycle part at a time.
