About the book:
Around the world the motorcycle is now being discovered as a joyful expression of personality and creativity. The Ride showcases today’s most influential builders and their iconic custom bikes that epitomize this rebirth.
The Ride focuses on pioneers and small workshops from around the globe who are creating customized motorcycles that come as close as possible to one’s own vision of how pure riding should be. They are building and rebuilding choppers, bobbers, and café racers in ways that are as personal, radical, and subversive as they are knowledgeable and respectful of tradition.
Co-edited by one of the foremost authorities in the field, Bike EXIF’s Chris Hunter, The Ride presents detailed photography of archetypal creations by Shinya Kimura, Walt Siegl, Wrenchmonkees, DP Customs, Cole Foster, Deus Ex Machina, El Solitario MC, Cafe Racer, Dreams, Rough Crafts, Southsiders, Roland Sands, Ian Barry, and many more. The stunning images, by the likes of Kristina Fender and Sam Christmas, are put into context by in-depth texts by Hunter, Paul d’Orléans, a leading expert on vintage motorcycles and respected motorcycling journalists David Edwards and Gary Inman.
