What the hell is GKM?
GKM is a magazine… and has been since March 2007. Before that it was a website called 'Greasy Kulture' which was set up by Guy Bolton in 1999 to showcase some of the stuff he was into: traditionally-styled old Harley choppers and bobbers, hot rods, events, lowbrow artists… anything that took his fancy really.
See, back then it was a rare sight to see a young fella on a chopped old motorcycle; it was still the era of fat tyres and even fatter old blokes in love with billet and barf-inducing paintjobs. There were a few young guys carrying the torch for classic, pared-back bike style: Chopper Dave, Jason Jessee, Bill Mize, Steve Uhl, Scott Craig… and GK featured them before the mainstream realised their appeal and influence.
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 and hot rods raw, raucous and unsanitised, you've come to the right place.
