Men and motorcycles: a story that has vacillated somewhere between cult and cliche 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.The book presents a stunning selection of recent custom motorcycles, as well as the small, local workshops around the globe in which they are built. Hotbeds of creativity and craftsmanship, these workshops are mostly run by single individuals and attract a small yet devoted community of fan sand fellow builders.
From limited series to one-offs made for personal pleasure or to order, The Ride2nd Gear features the brilliant results of this process. Its pages are filled with bikes that offer extraordinary design and driving experiences
