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 !

Hangar Rockin 2k11

[ Hangar Rockin | St. Stephan | 2-3.07.2011]

It was our first time at the Hangar… and a big one !

The road to St. Stephan is really beautiful, through Bulle-Charmey-Jaun-Zweisimmen. The alps in summer offer some amazing landscapes to discover on two-wheels. Even St. Stephan, which is trapped in the valley with glaciers at the end of it.

The parking is divided in two : vehicles until ’68 and scooters (mostly Vespa), vehicles until ’60 and scooters until ’68. But you can find also some nice pieces along the public parking ! The camera burned the whole afternoon and the battery suffered severely ! Only but eye-candy bikes, from the most radical to true oldies. Cars were well represented too, with hot rods, rat rods, leadsleds, muscles and classics.

Then time for races : A mano a mano on a 1/8 mile track ! Cars, motorcycles and vespa dueled on the runway. While pinstriping artists and merchandising were the attractions at the village.

Saturday’s evening offered great live shows. Especially Voola and the Jayhawks, playing an hypnotizing voodoo rythm’n’blues. JD McPherson and his band gave a nice rock’n’roll gig too afterwards !

While going back home on sunday morning, modern cars just look so boring !

Wheels Fest 2k11

[Lignières | 18-19.06.2011]

The hell of a weekend ! It started really bad with the worse weather you could expect. Raining cats and fucking dawgs at saturday morning. We had to wait a bit to move to Lignières, but we finally reached the place dry and safe.

We set our camp on the field. Quite alone due to the weather. People weren’t up to come there on saturday to be washed by the rain. Sunday had a better luck Hopefully, the sun showed few times, even if always quickly followed by rain. And this lasts during the whole weekend ! Kind of tiring !

A bad weather could not ruin everything. We had great time watching the drifters on the track, a nice MTX’s race with both adults and kids, skate-roller-bmx tricks on the big air. Too bad for MTX freestyler, the wind kept strong through the two days and they could land only few airs. Nice spots at the village, especially the VW’s oldies, some lowriders, few bikes from Bad Boys Motorcycles and others, two custom bicycles’ stalls with Ocobike & BCBC. And last but not least, the Fuel Girls offered many shows while rubber were burned by drifters’ cars and bikes on the stage.

Above all, we had some great laughs at the camp. Kind of creepy at night with the wind and sometimes some rain. But we had music, beers and food : enough to entertain us until we went sleeping.

The organizer’s crew did a wonderful job, unfortunately the weather played a bad part in the affair !

Nevertheless, Wheels Fest 2012, here we come !
