Issue 035


The Hero’s Journey: it’s the narrative structure at the heart of every adventure story ever told. From the moment when the hero crosses the threshold from the familiar to the unfamiliar, everything changes. At Iron & Air, we’ve always admired and embraced those who courageously leap into the unknown. Their stories have filled our pages since day one, and Issue 035 is no different.

In this issue, we join James Barkman and his buddies as they face mechanical failures, dangerous weather, and an avalanche along their two­-wheeled journey to Patagonia. We meet seemingly deathproof brothers Aaron and Shaun Guardado, who defied their father’s wishes when they bought their first motorcycles — only to later make their passion a part of the family business. And Shirley Muldowney shares the triumph and struggle of battling gender norms on the drag strip to become the first woman to earn an NHRA racing license — and championship glory.

We also interview cover artist Amanda Zito, and hip­hop duo Four Fists, and learn why industrial designer Sam Aguiar found his muse in a 1972 Harley-­Davidson FLH, while Tim Klostermann chose to pursue a land speed record with something of a much smaller variety.

Adventure is always just across the threshold, there for those who are bold enough to step through that door. It’s all ahead in Issue 035.
