The Build

The Build: How The Masters Design Custom Motorcycles is a beautiful new title on the art of custom built motorcycles by Robert Hoekman Jr., out recently from Octane Press. The 192-page book documents custom bike building in detail, by looking at different bike styles, finding the right bike, and how to customize it; including selecting and building parts, painting,finishing, and performance mods. Hoekman rounded up expert advice from John Ryland (Classified Moto), Alan Stulberg (Revival Cycles), Jared Johnson (Holiday Customs), Jarrod DelPrado (DP Customs), and Max Hazan (Hazan Motorworks) too.

Sluice Box Tavern

Here’s a great song from the recent Contact Field Orchestra EP, MAPPING THE FUTURES GONE BY. CFO is known for crafting lush soundscapes which can incorporate everything from bluesy guitar riffs, to blippy digital sound effects, live percussion, and even found recordings from the field. If you like this as much as I do, you’ll be glad to know we have it in the Typo Shop. Enjoy.
