Iron & Air's statement:
"The world we live in has become a disposable world. Mass-production has smothered craft and working with one’s hands has become second class. There’s a movement of talent across the world however. Men and women who forsook the desk job for the wrench, rising each day to breathe new life into old machines. In doing so, they’re bringing us back to a simpler time while reminding us about the present with each modification and/or restoration of a timeless, classic motorcycle. It’s as though we ourselves are modified and restored upon seeing and riding these creations.
To ride a motorcycle is to understand the beauty of freedom. We salute the builders who publish that freedom to the world with each garage built creation they roll out of their shops. Humbly, we consider ourselves kindred spirits – a publisher of a different kind – and we seek to do the same each day, not by mass-producing the next motorcycle magazine, but through the telling of this story.
We have a penchant for the old, classic lines, simple engineering and power of the 60′s & 70′s rides that we won’t apologize for. British, Japanese, Italian – it doesn’t matter – they all have their own poetic stance and story. So we marvel at seeing a bike brought back through restoration as much as seeing builders breath new life into a tired machine, and in a way making it a classic all over again.
If you’re ever in or around the State of NH (New England USA), stop by our shop in downtown Concord, NH. We’re located next door to The Draft Pub on So. Main Street.
See you out there,
Team Iron & Air"
