The Ride. New Custom Motorcycles and their Builders Автор: Hunter C.
The Ride features transformations such as a boring plastic motorcycle made in Japan in the 1990s turned into a slick cafe racer with an Italian feel, a soulless neobaroque machine turned into an in-your-face scrambler, or an old find from grandpa' s barn turned into an absolutely comfort-free hardtail with the coolest of sounds. The book also 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 Walt Siegl, Wrenchmonkees, DP Customs, Cole Foster, Deus ex Machina, Shinya Kimura, Ian Barry, and Uwe Ehinger and their very different ideas of how a motorcycle should look. The unique bikes created in their garages sometimes made-to-order, sometimes in a limited series are often technically superior, better thought-out, and simply more radical than those produced by larger manufacturers who need to appeal to a broader audience. The spirit of this young motorcycle scene is reminiscent of that of current bike frame builders or even today' s new food subculture. It' s about making, transforming, or designing something with your own hands. In this case, something that will get a person from A to B, makes noise, smells, vibrates, and comes to life. What could be more exciting and satisfying? 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 as a significant challenge to technical expertise, craftsmanship, physics, discipline, and driving skill. 5175 руб √ в наличии
