Want to know more? Here’s FTW! in the words of editor Gary Pinchin:
FTW! Forever two wheels? For the win? F***…? Heck, what’s in a name? The bottom line is that we wanted to create a magazine celebrating the new wave of custom bikes that are sweeping the world. Because we love the style and the innovation and, most importantly, the fun of these motorcycles – and the scene they are part of. That’s the long and the short of it.
The ‘Loud Fast Motorcycles’ strapline is borrowed and bastardised from a long defunct punk magazine Loud Fast Rules.
The original punk ethos strikes a chord. Stick two fingers up at the establishment and do your own thing.
Cafe racers. Street trackers. Bobbers. People have been building them for years. But now there’s a twist. The builders are largely a new breed. Younger, vibrant, fashion-conscious and drawing inspiration from BMX, skating and surfing, all with a healthy nod to grungy old nostalgia and taking influences from vintage bikes through speedway and dirt trackers to hi-tech racing projectiles.
Like the early 1970s revisited, a time when motorcycles were the coolest thing since throwing peace signs at Hendrix, it’s suddenly hip again to be a biker – but only certain bikes can be hip. And they’re the kind of bikes in this magazine. A celebration of engineering genius and free thinking. A celebration of do it yourself in a world of disposable trinkets. People want to get involved with their bikes again. They want to strip them bare. Fettle carbs. Make seats…Plastic covered, computerized bolides are passé.
FTW! is about all the bikes that underpin the new movement. A scene inspired by web blogs like The Bike Shed, Bike EXIF, Silodrome.
People who love bikes – really love bikes – will know what we mean and embrace what we’re trying to do with FTW!
