Streetfighters 3 Autumn 1992
« on: September 07, 2009, 08:28:58 AM »



You asked for this magazine. Maybe not in such a direct way as that sounds, but you did.
lt‘s like this, when we put together our first issue eighteen months ago
we didn't really know what were getting into.
Sure we knew that there was a significant  number of individuals out there planning and building
and riding custom bikes and it didn't sit easily within any kind of categorisation that existed back then.

No doubt these were custom bikes. But you were just as likely to see them in the bike park at Donington
as you were to see them rolling through the gate at Kent or the Bulldog.
And you would see them on the island going down Douglas prom on the back wheel....
laying down rubber on the road outside Bushy's...... frightening RC30 riding Jaspers and Jeremy's on Mad Sunday.

We came up with the name Streetfighters and l think we got t at dead right.
These were bikes built for the pure and complete sensation of, speed with no
thought for numbers printed out on little pieces of paper.
Bikes that had been ignored by the motorcycle press because people in slip on
shoes said there was no money in it.

And they might even be right, but there‘s only one way to find out.
Streetfighters 3 - you asked for it, you’ve got it.
