A PHOTO TOUR OF A TIME AND PLACE IN MOTORCYCLE CULTURE. 120 RARE, CUSTOM, ONE-OFF BIKES AND THE CRAFTSMEN THAT FORGE THEIR EXISTENCE.
HI, MY NAME IS THOR DRAKE, WE ARE TRYING TO RAISE THE FUNDS TO PRODUCE THESE PHOTO BOOKS AND DOCUMENT A PIECE OF MOTORCYCLE HISTORY.
Check out our rewards, you get a lot in return. We are hopeful we can raise the money needed to fund the production of our amazing books. Your contribution will also support our free shows and it will validate all the the hard work of everyone involved in the One Motorcycle Show.
Our Story: Back in 2010 we decided to host a grassroots motorcycle show to replicate all the days and nights spent kicking tires in the garage, talking with pals about bikes and the endless hours obsessing over what the "One" bike would be if you could build it. We hoped it would inspire builders to bring in bikes that weren't just show bikes — the bike had a unique story and a reason to exist. The shows brought a whole bunch of rare, weird, old, new, and all around amazing bikes together in one place.
The books document these bikes and builders. They are hardbound, full-color, high-quality books worthy of the finest coffee table or workbench.
Features bikes from the original 2010 "One" show. It focuses on the classic beauty and form of the machine itself. The books were designed by the folks at PEETKEGLER.com and the motorcycles and builders were photographed by Chris Hornbecker. www.hornbeckerphoto.com
Features the bikes from the 2011 show and the focus is on the builders behind the bikes. Their stories exist as handwritten entries, unedited and from the heart. The books were designed by the folks at PEETKEGLER.com and the motorcycles and builders were photographed by Ray Gordon. www.raygordon.com
Your support on KickStarter will not only help us self-publish these books, it will further our efforts and energy to go out and get things done. It will validate the hard-work and energy of each builder and it will keep us all striving in our communal search to build the "One." If this campaign is successful ,we will immediately start designing two more books, one for 2012 show and another for the upcoming show this February 8, 9 and 10th.
Also look for a One Motorcycle show this upcoming March in Austin, Texas. Dates are to be determine.
