13th Issue on sale now!

The Streetfighters Special Edition 13th Issue 2011 is a detailed guide through the world of streetfighters past, present and future, from the original 1950s cafĂ© racers through ‘classic’ streetfighters, to the present day with stunter street rides, the awesome French Monsters Race series and an interview with the man who designed the T509 Speed Triple, and then into the future with the lowdown on high performance electric bikes, futuristic concepts and even a functional Light Cycle. This Special Edition is priced at £6.99 and is worth every single penny… even if we do say so ourselves. Go get one bought!

Custom Xtreme at Motorcycle Live

On Saturday the 19th November, Motorcycle Live 2011 opened its doors for the first time. Star attraction was, of course, our Custom Xtreme display of the finest customised motorcycles, an assembly of the best bikes as hand picked by Streetfighters and Back Street Heroes staffers to represent their particular styles.

Full coverage of Motorcycle Live and Custom Xtreme will be in Streetfighters #216, which hits the shelves in early January, so for now here's a pic of Best Streetfighter winner Yantosh claiming his trophy from our guest prizegiver Danny John-Jules, formerly the Cat from Red Dwarf.

If you're going to the show, make sure you pop by the Streetfighters/BSH stand and check out Yan's awesome twin turbo GSX-R as pictured, plus a further ten or so of the best streetfighters around. And, of course, check out the awesome creations sourced by the BSH crew, including the Best BSH bike 'Weird Fish' built by Paul Milbourn and the utterly awesome Lamb Engineering 'Son Of A Gun' BSA, which took Custom Xtreme Best In Show 2011 - the highest accolade we can give.

While you're there, check out the Roland Sands VMAX on the Yamaha stand and buy Scary Glyn, our merchandise man, a pint.

Brum Bound

With SF215 almost in the bag, we're about to pack up the SF office and head to Birmingham's NEC for Motorcycle Live and, more specifically, Custom Xtreme.
With a dozen of the UK's best streetfighters, allied to a similar number of radical customs thanks to Back Street Heroes, Custom Xtreme has be regularly voted as being one of the most interesting features at the show. That, in itself, is a good reason to attend, but also remember that the 2011 Streetfighters 13th edition will also be on sale from our stand.

So, we're back after another weekend of lunacy and drunken debauchery at Fighterama in Germany, having had a grand total of about eight hours sleep in five days...

We'll be bringing you a full write-up of the event in the next issue...
