Meet bad-ass builder and friend Kevin Dunworth of Loaded Gun Customs and a sneak at Bucephalus.
Whether we're plugging away at the next issue, or trouble shooting a busted old bike in the garage, music is one of the things that motivates us when we wanna get out and ride, what inspires us to create on a daily basis and often times what keeps us from hurling the keyboard or the socket wrench across the room when things are not quite going as planned. This is just a small sample of some the tracks I am listening to daily while plugging away on Issue Ten. Check 'em out.

You prefer a bag over your shoulder, a bike key and a cell phone as your office. You have the ability to work from anywhere, anytime you want, and you don’t want caps on your income.
They say if you really want to make money, you’ll forget the salary. Of course, working at Iron & Air is not just about money. But finding that extra income source doing something you love (like being around motorcycle & motorcycle culture all the time) isn’t a bad gig. We want you to keep what you’re currently doing to earn a living. You just happen to like the extra income and can make it happen. You may even relish telling your friends and family you work for Iron & Air. If so, read on...
We’re looking for that person who gets what we’re doing and wants to be a part of it. Chances are (we sure hope), you’ve subscribed, read the mag, met us at a show, follow us on social media and can’t get enough. You’ve got an unhealthy obsession with motorcycles (especially old ones). You ride, and you dream of riding when not riding.
You have an income doing something right now, but perhaps some flexibility to send emails and communicate during the day to add to your monthly take home. You’d relish the idea of working for a vintage motorcycle magazine. Let’s face it - if it worked out, you might like it better than your current day job.
You’re also a good connector. You know how to reach people. Communicate. Make things happen and talk motorcycles. And you’re self-sufficient. You prefer a bag over your shoulder, a bike key and a cell phone as your office. You have the ability to work from anywhere, anytime you want.
If this sounds like you - here’s the scoop: we want you on our team. We are looking for someone to work with us from any location in the world to help us begin to grow our revenues in a few areas. We’ve been super-focused on launching and building a great product. The foundation is there - now we are looking to beef up that revenue side of Iron & Air to ensure longevity for everyone. Let’s face it - loving motorcycles won’t pay the bills by themselves.
We need someone who can:
Work from anywhere (and relish it productively)
Find retail/boutique shops (check out our current list of stockists who carry Iron & Air Magazine) for our mag to make it on the shelf.
Identify, connect and start dialogue with potential advertisers and sponsors for the magazine (learn about our philosophy here)
Live the life of an Iron & Air’er - represent us well wherever you are.
Use CRM software to log activity and conversations, manage your contacts and funnel
Work with team on new sales & collab with us on big opportunities (i.e. a big brand like Triumph is interested in sponsoring)
Join us as needed on the road at moto events (we’ll cover costs)
To be considered, here’s what we ask: creatively tell us why you’re the one. Give us a snapshot of a day-in-the-life of you. Inspire us to say, “hell, yes - this is the right guy/gal”. Email your desire to join us to firstname.lastname@example.org. Can’t wait to find you.

If you're not familiar with Aether Apparel, they've been redefining what sportswear looks and feels like by creating athletic wear that not only performs, but maintains a high degree of fashionability as well. These guys not only built the bridge between fashion and function, but they are dedicated to crossing it everyday as well. Check out the latest to come from the guys at Aether, a trip that merges two unlikely lifestyles – riding motorcycles and winter mountain sports.

The windy city hosted the premier Mods Vs. Rockers event in the country again this year, this time in an all new location to enable the show to grow in numbers and only get better for years to come. We attended the event for the first time and we're able to spend some time with old friends and new ones alike. We had our booth set up inside the beautiful historic (and I am pretty sure haunted) Aragon Ballroom, with the Triumph | Dime City Cycles | Neale Bayly giveaway bike for all to drool over. We love Chicago and can't wait to get back there. Special thank you to our buddies, the Wilkinson Brothers, of Good Spark Garage who let us share some great moments they captured from the event.
Road trips are fun. Seeing new places, meeting new friends, learning about yourself and the lay of the land along the way is all a part of the journey. It's the very fabric that made up the pioneers of westward expansion in the US, and a group of folks in California are bringing back that spirit with The Roadery. Offering "unique motorcycle tours of the American West for people who want to experience the beauty, culture and camaraderie of the open road," The Roadery sets up riders with unique, custom motorcycles, the option of a guided or self guided tour, and hotel or campground accommodations, letting you explore the beautiful landscape of the West in a way that you'll never forget.
The Issue Nine release party is officially over, but that doesn't mean you can't relive the event or catch what you missed if you didn't make it. We are thrilled with the turnout and look forward to our next one. Thanks to everyone involved and to all of those that pitched in to help make this successful.

Forged from a passion to live in the days when men were men and speed was speed, Dime City Cycles & Iron & Air Magazine has partnered with Triumph Motorcycles, British Customs, Progressive Suspension and The Speed Merchant to bring you the 2013 Triumph Bonneville CR. It's fitted with an aftermarket accessory ensemble to customize and individualize your modern Triumph Classic in honor of the Gods of Speed.
Starting with a base model Bonneville T100, Herm and Jason from Dime City Cycles tore into the British machine with a goal of making it a sleek and higher performer than it's big brother, the Thruxton. No expense or time was spared when it came to developing the DCC Originals line of CR products. Every single nook and cranny was explored, each piece refined again and again, and road tested for over a year. The end result, what you see here - a truly retro styled modern classic. And this one in particular, we're giving away to one of you.

Because it changes how you THINK about your work. It changes WHY you work, WHAT you make + even WHO you work for. When your work is a gift, your goal is no longer to satisfy a boss or a client - or even to gain a paycheck. YOU NOW WORK TO MAKE YOUR SELF HAPPY. And in turn speak directly to your audience. Because you now give them something of VALUE - a piece of yourself.
Much thanks to Chris at Refueled Magazine for sharing this.
