Issue 1

In the very first issue of Built magazine, we profile some of the world's best custom motorcycle builders with the British industry represented by Down & Out, Shaw Speed and Customs, Hawg Haven, Whitewalls, Oily Rag Motor CodeBolex, Urban Rider, 72 Motorcycles,  Siderock Cycles and Bolt Motorcycles.  

And from further afield there's XTR Pepo and El Solitario from Spain, Revival Cycles from Austin, Texas, Amsterdam-based Nozem and Clutch Customs in Paris.

There's a whole band of brothers spawned by the Yamaha Faster Sons project and  a collection of customised boxer twins based on BMW's R nineT.  

If you already know what your dream bike looks like, but just need the parts to make it happen, don't miss our feature on LSL Parts, the manufacturers of bits on the bucket list of bike builders the world over.

There's plenty of gear on offer too, with galleries of kit from Urban Rider, fit for the style of your bike whether it's a cafe racer, tracker, scrambler or bobber and we feature some truly exceptional lid designs from Davida and Maxwell Paternoster. 

We get a behind the scenes look around Royal Enfield's concept store in London and for some inspiration on where to ride your motorcycle, we go on the The Ride 2015 with Sailor Jerry Rum, a 2000-mile road trip which is basically a two week orgy of classic customs, late night boozing and hard-shouldered spannering and hear about two men's 10,000 mile ride across the states in search of independent craftsmen in Road to Artisan
