A year ago Issue One was launched, and I followed the magazine from the get go when it was just a Facebook page gaining interest. If you’ve read Iron & Air, you can agree that they have well exceeded their goal, and created a magazine that offers more to the vintage and custom moto-world than we all could've asked for, and Issue Ten is no exception. As an admirer of I&A’s work, a vintage motorcycle enthusiast, and currently studying journalism and photography in college, it was a dream come true when I met the publisher, Brett Houle, at a car and bike show last year in June. Through persistence and a year of multiple encounters with Iron & Air, here I stand as the Editorial Intern proud to be sharing the accomplishments of their latest efforts – Issue Ten.
It has been my absolute pleasure to be apart of the tail end of this Issue, and involved in bringing the hungry readers the latest and greatest from Iron & Air. Issue Ten has more content than ever, including the captivating 44-page spread of motorcycle event coverage from around the world. This Issue will take you from Europe to Australia, and Africa back to the States, giving you moto-crazed readers the next best thing to a first hand experience. Events included are Scram Africa, Mods Vs. Rockers Chicago, Throttle Roll, Wheels and Waves, Born Free, and many more. After we take you around the globe, get your fix of badass builds from Choppahead’s latest pre-unit Triumph to Espresso Racer’s BMW R80, aptly named "Mobster". Then, get lost in the breathtaking photographs from Lanakila MacNaughton’s Women’s Motorcycle Exhibition. Wipe away the drool, then get ready for moto-artist Makoto Endo, and his unbelievable motorcycle portraits painted with just a chopstick and ink. Endo gives a new meaning to the two words simplistic and intricate, and this Issue gives you the inside, exclusive interview with the talented artist himself.
