The 2013 edition is called Garages and celebrates a devotion that translates into hours and days dedicated to maintaining and customising bikes, in your own garage, on Sunday or during the week... in whatever spare time you have.
Metzeler has decided to dedicate its calendar to these people – to bikers who, in the most unlikely corners of the world, disassemble, manipulate, reassemble, forge and create masterpieces that are destined to become unique pieces. People like Kengo Kimura from Japan, who uses his workshop in Hiroshima to modify mostly English and Japanese single cylinder bikes; the Frenchmen from El Solitario Motoclub who do this mostly just for fun or the Bavarian ‘Isle of Man mad’, who has dedicated himself for over 30 years to customising English classic racers.
There will be just 6000 copies available worldwide.
