For those of you who aren’t aware of Lowside Magazine, you should most definitely stop what you’re doing right now and check it out! http://www.lowsidesyn.com/ It’s a grass-roots revival magazine that knows no bounds and supports and thrives on anything that’s related two (and four) wheels. That’s right, cool old-school choppers, bobbers and especially Cafe Racers with occasional classic hot rods thrown in for good measure.
The crew from Lowside including, to name a few, Big n Rich, Tiny “Skinny Jeans” Tim, Dan “The Man”, Roughneck Deb and Q-Ball will be featured in Episode 13 of Cafe Racer TV where they brought down and helped us tear apart, the CB400F The DCC Crew built for Season 2 of the series. In addition to doing some serious tear-down they also helped us pull-off one of the best grand opening events ever. The perfect mixture of old-school choppers and cafe bikes showed despite the rain and created which is quite possibly one of the most eclectic gathers the South has ever seen. The result, what we like to call our generations cult of “vintage speed machines.”
Right about now you’re saying “What’s the news in this post guys?” Well, we’ll tell you…
The news is, that all bets are off. Whether you ride a cafe bike, a vintage harley, a custom XS650 or anything else that goes fast and makes noise that you built by your hands then you’re in the right place. There’s no more tough-guy bullshit lathered in leather in chrome. This is our time for motorcycling and it’s a great time. A time to appreciate the aesthetic beauty that is “custom garage built motorcycles” put together via a wide-spread creative collective that knows no bounds.
Expect to see a lot more from the likes of Dime City Cycles, Lowside, Loaded Gun and a handful of others who recognize this and want to support you and your nasty little wrench turning habits. It’s about you, your machine and your right to exercise individuality and spit in the face of homogeny.
And to wet your appetite just a bit, issue #6 of Lowside is being released right around the corner. In it, you’ll get a tasty look inside the dark corners of Dime City where we detail the build of “The Four Hundred” our best Vintage Speed Machine yet. Keep an eye out, we promise we’ll make you proud.
