CRAFTRAD x Bike EXIF • International issue N°1
Date of release: 18th of May – preorder now!
Designed and published in the capital of Germany, CRAFTRAD is the voice of the alternative custom scene in central Europe. Until today, you could only read the magazine in German, but we are now going international, because our brothers in spirit live all over the world. One of the leading figures of the global custom phenomenon is Chris Hunter, founder of the website Bike EXIF. It doesn’t matter whether you live in Australia or Zimbabwe, whether you’ve built a board tracker or a café racer: Chris will show it to the world. For the past ten years Bike EXIF has been the showcase for the best builds on the planet, so for this new international issue we are proud to have Chris on board as co-publisher.
We have selected some of the best stories we’ve published in the German edition for this first international issue of CRAFTRAD. Then we’ve added new, exclusive stories – such as our report on the custom bike exhibition at the Peterson Museum in LA. We’ve also got profiles of the hottest new custom bikes, ride reports on the Kawasaki Z900RS and the Husqvarna VITPILEN 701, and three exciting columns – from Chris Hunter, from Indian’s new design boss Ola Stenegärd, and from The Vintagent himself, Mr. Paul d'Orléans.
A love of motorcycles knows no boundaries, and we’re going to be pushing the boundaries in CRAFTRAD x Bike EXIF. Please join us in celebrating the extroverts, freedom-seekers and nonconformists who have shaped our world.
