View Full Version : Another Chopper Mag??

So I've been working with the old guys over at Easyriders Mag for about a year now and have convinced them to let me put out a new chopper mag for them. I had planned to put out a Japanese style magazine but was told it would cost way to much to print 100,000 high end "photo books" . So what I decided to do was just put out an original Easyriders style mag. No studio shoots, no show bikes, no goofy layouts with hard to read text; just a plain ol' easy to read magazine. Having access to the archives of a mag that has been around since 1971 and the photographers and artist I have on board will make for a pretty fuckin rad magazine.

The only problem I am having is coming up with the name, seems as though every god damn .com is taken. I'm open for suggestions, and if I use the name I'll make sure you get a subscription and some other cool shit that is lying around the office.

What about something simple, like "Chops", or "Chop". Whatever it is, make sure it's something simple and easy to remember. I wouldn't worry too much about finding a URL that matches the Mag, if it's good enough, we'll know where to go, even if it's www.fistfullofpenis.com

your "logo" can be a hacksaw with the word "motorcycle" in it (looking like it) so you can stay away from the "bobber/chopper" is it this or that wording

So I am all confused now - when I read this thread, and the interview with Cary and the Paisano crew in the features section a while back, I was intrigued by the prospect of Paisano putting out a more grassroots magazine aimed at "this crowd" rather than the fat-tire yuppies.

Somehow, I connected that with "Hopper (http://hoppermag.com/magazine/features)" magazine, and assumed that was the online version of what would become the new Paisano rag. But then I find out that Cary Brobeck left "Hopper" to pursue "other opportunities" (I am assuming the gig at Paisano).

So Cary, will this new mag ("Wrench"? Really?) have some of the same vibe as Hopper? I liked a lot of the features and photos there, and it would be nice to see something with a Dice / GKM / Show Class vibe but in a full-size glossy format (of course, Jeff Holt may have beaten you too it with the way he has turned Street Chopper around in the last year or so - seems to be on to something).

At any rate, good luck with it, and I look forward to seeing it!

Ah yes, the Paisano Publication "mirror magazines". Whatever is popular, and somebody else broke the ground on, let's jump on somebody else's bandwagon and siphon their readership off with our own duplicate publication. We're just like Harley-Davidson, we can let everybody else do our development work, then repackage it and give it back to a ready-made audience......

Street Rodder is big? Let's do American Rodder
Skin and Ink is big? Let's do Tattoo
Biker Lifestyle is big? Let's do Biker Magazine
Car Kulture Deluxe is big? Let's do Rebel Rods
The Horse is big, Street Chopper is coming back in a big way, and Dice, Greasy Kulture, and Show Class are selling? Let's do Wrench

"Let's go back and do the format we pioneered 42 years ago that we should have stuck with all along, instead of blowing those original readers off by chasing and squeezing the last "lifestyle" buck from the RUBS and the Rolex Riders, who we know we're loosing now because they're are buying retirement condos, motor homes, and luxury sedans, instead of our stuff. When those readers disappear completely, we'll merge Wrench into Easyriders, kill that title, and be right back where we started from 4 decades ago. We might even put the SS bolts back on the gas tank of the Ghostrider prints again! "

Good points Rich, but lets not forget about Easyriders. If you look at any issue of Dice, GK or any other indy mag you will find early Easyriders in all of them. Shit, most of the "cool guy" chopper party fliers and teeshirts are images taken right from the mag itself. I still cherish the 70's and 80's Easyriders I inherited from my pops and I am using them for inspiration with the new mag. Wrench may not be the coolest name and I may not be one of the cool bar hopping chopper kids but I have been working my ass of on this mag and I think it will show. Easyriders took a big chance on me, I am not a magazine guy, I'm just a regular ol dude who likes to ride as much and as far as I can, when I can.

I'm no expert on content and control but one thing that really fucks me off is the whole "we dont ride the safe way ...cuz we're to cool and tuff to care!!!!!! " reality garage fake hard ass shit lol
Like the stupid stories from rebel rods and that other hot rod fake a billy magazine , I find it insulting to the reader and too moronic to take seriously.
I guess what I'm trying to say is cool it with the exclamation points and in your face comments it seems like pandering to readers that are clueless, Dig?
Also, black and white is not as much fun as color ( see pleasantville lol)
What did I like ?
The feature bikes were cool, and not all Harley ads...the interviews were an intresting mix of folks too.I could easily find myself picking up another issue as long as the magazine strays from pages of assholes making tuff guy faces because they have a tattoo or an old gas tank .
These are real bikes from real folks like you or yer neighbor...and if he spoke to me like the voice on monster garage I would think he was an asshole , wouldn't you ?
Good luck with all your hard work ...
