Greasy Kulture issue 84 has just hit the streets and its cover features John Edwards and his beautiful '41 Knucklehead chopper which won best Knuck at last summer's Born Free show. John's no stranger to Greasy Kulture's pages and we love talking to him about his approach to building, bodywork and paint – and his absolute love for NOS parts! [Photos: joyartco]
Dave Bevan brought fearless ingenuity and punk rock attitude to the piecing together of his Triumph Speed Twin chopper; he's a well known face on England's chopper scene (as well as being a talented writer and musician) and puts the miles on his machines. [Photos: Simon Bernacki]
Nick Resty builds great choppers and as soon as we saw this 1940 Harley UL we arranged to shoot it for the magazine; we love this bike's stance and Nick's careful choice of period parts. Flatheads forever! [Photos: Jerimiah Smith]
From Bavaria, Christian Sommer built his Triumph to be reliable transport on long trips across Europe; it features a handmade hardtail and lots of other one-off parts. Chopper? Bobber? Who cares. It's cool. [Photos: Daniel Dick]
The Congregation Show is a must-go date on the custom calendar now and we asked our friend Daron Gray to capture the atmosphere – and the two-and-four-wheeled exhibits – through his lens for this feature.
Katsuyuki Kobayashi decided after years of riding a bone-stock '48 Panhead round Tokyo to go over to the dark side with this '38 Knucklehead chopper. He hasn't looked back. [Photos: Suntee/Mochi]
This funky big twin Harley flathead from Germany was built from the cases up by Franz Rabauer; but making aftermarket parts work with OEM is never straightforward, as he tells us. [Photos: Chris Sommer]
The Race of Gentlemen is in its ninth year and esteemed snapper David Carlo has been there for most of them; he shares some iconic images from October's racing with us.
