What the hell is GKM?
GKM is an independently published magazine about traditionally-styled old choppers and bobbers.
15 years ago, in the era of fat tyres, billet and easter egg paintjobs, it was a rare sight to see a young fella on a funky, chopped old motorcycle; but a few young guns started building bikes in the classic, pared-back style of the fifties and sixties and GKM (in an online form back then) was there to bring these machines to a global audience. In 2007, we bucked the trend by going into print.
And now that custom motorcycles are finally enjoying their day in the sun, with more homebuilt creativity hitting the highways than ever before, GKM is still bringing you the best of the back-street builders, the sexiest street bikes and the best period customs from Europe, America, Japan and Australasia. If you like your motorcycles raw, raucous and regularly ridden, you've come to the right place.
