The world’s most prestigious motorcycle calendar is back. The 2022 edition of the famous Bike EXIF wall calendar showcases 13 incredible new customs from builders such as Max Hazan, Vagabund Moto, K-Speed, Renard Speedshop, and Bottpower.
For the second year in a row, we’re producing it with the help of Iron & Air magazine. The cover star is provided by Tamarit Motorcycles: A sleek Thruxton café racer called “Gullwing X”, it’s one of the most popular motorcycles recently featured on Bike EXIF. We’ve also got the Zero SR/S by Woolie’s Workshop, a gorgeous Triumph Daytona 500 restomod by Retrograde Mechanica, and Thrive’s wild two-stroke Kawasaki dragster.
