Sideburn Magazine #51
Sideburn 51 is full of bikes built, ridden and raced by people swimming against the tide, doing things differently. The racer who built a chassis with his own hands, and won an AFT race with it. Jeffrey Carver returning to racing on an XR750. The Canadian making modern 450s feel like framers. The Brit who made a street tracker from a KTM 950, and the street tracker that has got us in a froth. Titanium frame; torsion bar suspension; monocoque alloy body, and a 1960 Ironhead Sportster at the centre of things.
+ Dirt don't hurt! Tell that to the Biltwell adventurers who pointed a fleet of new and old Harleys at Alaska and got more than they bargained for.
+ Japan race scene
+ Travis Newbold off-kilter workshop tips
+ Interviews, art, history, trophy queen...
