issue 164

available now! 

With Autumn already here and the cooler weather on the way, we review a couple of the great events over Summer in Australia. First we cover the iconic Brighter Days, a charity fundraiser held each year in the Victorian alpine township of Bright. And what a great weekend it was. Over $450,000 raised for three charities and we were there to cover the whole event

Our cover bike is a beautiful and unusual Pan/Shovel bobber built by ex-Buckcherry drummer Xavier Muriel – it is bike building at its finest. As well, we feature a neat street bike based on the H-D Street 500 learner bike. Impressive, and very cool!

And finally, we have a tribute to Arlen Ness, the world famous custom king and great friend to this magazine who sadly passed recently.

All this and much more in the latest issue of HEAVY DUTY!
