The Ride 2nd Gear Teaser

A Stunning Selection of Recent Custom Motorcycles

Posted by Gestalten—09/2015

Custom bikes 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. Our new book The Ride 2nd Gear presents a stunning selection of recent custom motorcycles, as well as the small, local workshops in which they are built. Whether they preserve or radically expand on traditional craftsmanship, these custom machines are more agile, faster, and therefore more fun than anything produced in the past. The Ride 2nd Gear is a showcase of the power and beauty of these bikes.

The Ride 2nd Gear is available at Gestalten Pavillion, Gestalten Space, and the Gestalten online shop.
