The Bike EXIF support team

The Bike EXIF support team

Motorcycle website advertising
Our mission at Bike EXIF is to bring you a very selective dose of the best motorcycles, from the past and present. We’re thankful to have the backing of sponsors who support this goal, and it’s time to give them a hat-tip. Please pay them a visit—because they like the same stuff that we do, and their support keeps the wheels turning on Bike EXIF.

Our site sponsor is the premium motorcycle boot maker Vitesse Moto. Their super-stylish boots are engineered for performance, but comfortable enough to be worn every day. There’s no compromise on safety levels, though: Vitesse has created ‘V-Cockpit’ technology, a patented ankle management device that gives you the best possible protection-to-comfort ratio.

Self Edge is a store for those who have a passion for denim as well as motorcycles. They stock the world’s best brands, including Iron Heart—perfect for riders who want a heavier weight of denim. You’ll find Self Edge in San Francisco and New York, and worldwide via their online store.

Falcon Motorcycles has backed us from the beginning. They specialize in building one of a kind, post-war British motorcycles. That means custom vintage bikes, rebuilt entirely from the ground up—with nearly every part, every portion of the frame and engine remade, refurbished, customized and/or altered to create a wholly new motorcycle. Find out more on the Falcon Motorcycles blog, and check their Facebook page too.

Baxter of California is another company that cottoned onto Bike EXIF very quickly. They create cutting-edge men’s skincare products. Baxter’s CEO, Jean-Pierre Mastey, has been a supporter of Bike EXIF from the start—and in his other role as an LA tastemaker, runs an eclectic and entertaining blog called Baxter Finley.

Zero Engineering are the founders of the Samurai chopper scene, and one of the few chopper builders that we respect. They created a style of their own, and have a huge following in the USA as well as Japan. (No less than three Zero bikes are featured in the movie Iron Man 2.) Check Zero Engineering out on Facebook.

Compass Expeditions is the world leader in motorcycle tours of South America, Australia and Russia. They use carefully-selected ride leaders and support vehicle drivers, and have a real passion for both motorbikes and travel. Check out their website for tour details.

Glory Sales and Service was founded in 1999 by Justin Kell. On any given day you can buy a 1960s Triumph flat track racer, a set of 1930s salt and pepper shakers, and maybe even a stuffed boar’s head—along with more conventional items from the likes of Davida, Lewis Leathers and Barbour clothing. Follow their blog and become a fan on their Facebook page.

Deus Ex Machina needs no introduction for most custom motorcycle enthusiasts. And now there’s The Big Book of Deus: 300 pages of hardbacked, laminated, dust jacketed, internally combusted, gravity fed, hand crafted, word smithed goodness ready to jet into your sweaty mits. A visual history of the first five years of Deus Ex Machina and the bikes, boards, beats, broads and beefhearts that have passed their way. Become a fan on their Facebook page too here.

Ural has been making motorcycles with sidecars in Irbit, Russia since 1941. These machines are simple and versatile, with classic styling and an inherent toughness completely absent from most modern motorcycles. Check out their new Solo sT—a bike without sidecar that’s as much at home in the rough as on the road—and become a friend of Ural on their Facebook page.

Urban Rider is the premiere London stockist for Belstaff, Tucano Urbano and Givi. They ship worldwide and the store is on the iconic New Kings Road in Fulham, with two floors of the latest in stylish clothing, helmets and accessories for street bike and scooter riders.

US-based mota-lab imports and distributes some of the most desirable Italian sportbike parts, including EVR Special Parts, MWR air filters and ZARD exhausts—standard fitment on the insane Vyrus 987 C3 4V.

And finally, we’re glad to have Pro Italia join us too. These guys don’t just supply the most mouthwatering selection of Ducati performance parts, they also sell Aprilia, Ducati, Moto Guzzi and MV Agusta motorcycles—and sponsor the famous Cafe Desmo event. Welcome on board!
