Two years ago, with a sense of trepidation, we launched our first book The Ride. We expected it to be popular with the custom cognoscenti, but it ended up hitting the mainstream and topping the bestseller listings.
So now we’re back, with The Ride 2nd Gear. Once again, it’s 352 high quality pages jam-packed with the world’s best custom motorcycles, plus profiles of the most exciting builders.
The Ride 2nd Gear is a showcase of power and beauty, highlighting the machines that offer extraordinary design and riding experiences. Featured builders run from Ad Hoc Café Racers to the Young Guns Speed Shop, with illuminati such as Hazan Motorworks, JVB-Moto and Walt Siegl in between.
Some models are based on classic bobbers and choppers. Others are Italian-style racing machines, Japanese classics, and rare BMWs and Triumphs. Others are art bikes made for show. Or futuristic visions, inspired by the aesthetics of science fiction, fantasy or anime.
You can pick from two different covers, and the roll call of writers includes Paul d’Orléans (The Vintagent), Jared Zaugg (Legend Of The Motorcycle organizer), our own Wesley Reyneke, Gary Inman of Sideburn magazine, and Greg Williams of Motorcycle Classics and American Iron.
