You can practically smell the oil, engine grease, burning rubber and tattoos on the pages of Back Street Heroes magazine. BSH is the magazine for anyone who has an interest in custom motorbikes – whether building or riding your own.
Gleaming chrome and well worn leather fill the pages of Back Street Heroes, bringing you the latest in rebuilds and customisation of classic and new bikes. Covering motorbike festivals the world over, as well as features on some astonishingly well constructed and customised rides, this magazine has got almost as much character as the bikes and riders in it.

What makes customising and building motorbikes great is not just the sense of satisfaction from watching your latest creation roar off into the sunset (or being on it, doing the roaring yourself) but the attitude of the community around it.
Now, motorbike communities have tended to get a bit of a bad press, historically. Think of any TV show with a bit of action in it, and whenever a group of people on motorbikes roll into town that’s essentially director shorthand for ‘bad guys’. A lot of this is down to the Hells Angels, and the perception of them as part of the 1-percenters movement; people who live outside of the law. They say that 99 percent of the motorbike community is perfectly law-abiding and friendly, but that other 1 percent…
What amazed us then, was the sheer amount of smiles to be found in the pages of BSH. Sure, there are also a fair few scowls for the camera and bad tattoos, but the overwhelming image is of a friendly and welcoming group of people drawn together by the love of their hobby and lifestyle. So, we issue a challenge to TV writers – next time you have a gang ride into town on their Harleys, backed by ominous music, let them be the good guys. Stereotyping is never a good thing. NB
