Amazing new book from Gestalten. Edited by Chris Hunter (Bike EXIF) and Robert Klanten. With additional writing by Paul d’Orléans, David Edwards, and Gary Inman. Can’t wait to have this bad boy in my hands.
“The Ride explores motorcycle riding as it is meant to be: as a means of getting around with attitude, an extension of one’s own body, an expression of personal freedom, but also a significant challenge to technical expertise, craftsmanship, physics, discipline, and driving skill.”

“The book presents small, local custom motorcycle workshops from around the globe that have established themselves with sought-after products that inspire other builders worldwide. It features extensive profiles of pioneers including Shinya Kimura, Walt Siegl, Wrenchmonkees, DP Customs, Cole Foster, Deus Ex Machina, El Solitario MC, Cafe Racer, Dreams, Rough Crafts, Southsiders, Roland Sands, and Ian Barry and their very different ideas of how a motorcycle should look. ”
