Lichter has photographed the motorcycle culture since the late 1970s and has had countless exhibits around the globe of his fine work since. He has authored ten "coffee-table" books featuring his lifestyle and studio work of motorcycles including two on Sturgis, large format books on choppers, and individual books on builders Arlen Ness, Billy Lane and Indian Larry.
