King Of The Road!
I had no idea that there was a strong bike culture amongst African-Americans until I came across the book Brooklyn Kings back in the early 2000s. I don’t have a copy though I bought it as a gift for a mate who let me kip in their spare room. I’d say it was a fare exchange:) Anyways the photos within it were fascinating and so very stylish that you couldn’t help but be drawn into that world and secretly long to be a part of it.
The author/photographer Martin Dixon is himself a biker and he gives us such a wide range of photos of this outsider culture that we can recognize that it is indeed a way of life. We get a peek at kings & their biker queens in all manner of life situations such from the holy- bike blessings, to the raunchy - bikini clad biker chicks doing a bike wash:). The book is as pricy now as it was back then so it’s on my Amazon wishlist but I will buy it one day soon. It’s the ultimate coffee table book…
