Swiss Side – La Kustom Kulture à l’Heure suisse

COver test 2 copie low

[Swiss Side Forum]

The Swiss Side Forum gather kustom kulture’s enthousiasts from Switzerland’s french side, as well as France and other countries. Thanks to the many local events, posts are always abundantly provided with lot of cool pictures. The project was to realize a collective photobook, wich ended with the participation of seven forum’s members – amateur or professionnal – and to the release of :

Swiss Side : La Kustom Kulture à l’Heure suisse

(Swiss Side : Swiss O’clock’s Kustom Kulture)

Through many different views – doing a burn with a chopper in an old barn, a group of friends fighting the rain during a ride, the emotional rise during the build of a bike or a hot rod in the sunset – we tried to picture this local kustom kulture scene.

The book is by now available on blurb.com (http://www.blurb.fr/b/4996380-swiss-side), at the starting price of 21.95 €. As a collective and free project, this amount only represent the print cost.

Thanks for your support.

This was the first time we made it so big. We got few booths with lowrider bicycles, vintage stuff, a famous local pinstriper and an ‘el dia de los muertos’ artist. We got a one-mand-band, putting some good vibes and music along the day.

But most of all, we seen a lot a people coming from other parts of Switzerland and France : friends, crews, family and passing-by strangers.

We’re tired, but we’re happy and thanksfull to every visitor and helpfull staff : nothing could have been done without them.

Swiss Side Crew forever !

Convergence of souls. Convergence of riders.

Around 19° C on a christmas day : what better else to do than picking your bike, calling friends, meeting them, riding, driking and getting back in time for the little bastard’s birth ?

Best epilogue ever for a year.
