Sideburn Issue 13 Launch Party at Krazy Horse

On Saturday I ventured east making a 200 odd mile pilgrimage to the Krazy Horse Customs shop where Sideburn magazine where holding their launch party for their 13th issue which is absolutely fantastic so go buy yours now. I've heard a lot about the shop since it opened earlier this year and it certainly lived up to the reports. A huge shop space akin to something you'd only really expect to see in the states held a wide ranging selection of custom bikes from Zero Engineering and S&S, even a new Morgan Three Wheeler. Upstairs you can buy spares, clothing and buy giant chips and slurp tea from real mugs. I couldn't go all that way without the sketchbook and so I chose my one subject for the day to be this...

 Shinya Kimura builds incredible custom bikes and has a beautiful philosophy about building. To see more on his incredible machines go to his blog:

Sideburn provided great music including a live set from The Stags, a great Hammond heavy group.
I didn't actually take any more photos of the shop stupidly but you'll have to go see for yourself as it's certainly worth it.
