Maybe you ride. Maybe you don’t.
But we can all dream.
Seasoned Sturgis vet? Prone to Easy Rider reveries? Just someone who breaks a neck at the gruff rumble of a chopper? This new ode to all things two-wheeled — which follows Exif’s original bestseller, The Ride — is for you.
Says publisher and advocate of all things bound and beautiful Gestalten:
“Men and motorcycles: a story that has vacillated somewhere between cult and cliché for years. Custom bikes, in particular, have a history that is deeply rooted in the spirit of freedom and change of the 1960s, as well as man’s primal urge to build something with his own hands—or, in this case, tools. The Ride 2nd Gear is a showcase of the power and beauty of these bikes.”
Expect all things custom from newbie craftsmen and old-salt gearheads alike, from a barebones Honda Mad’dax to a postwar-inspired British iron to a Harley Ironhead that’ll awaken any man’s inner Hell’s Angel.
Also gracing the glossy pages: this year’s Quail Gathering Industry Award Winner, the J63 by Revival Cycles. Oh — and a few stunning ladies wielding steel.
Check it out. Ride on.
