Pittsburgh Moto is an independent print publication that documents custom motorcycle culture in the Greater Pittsburgh region. Since 2017, the magazine has been showcasing the Steel City's passion for two wheels through an appreciation of the individuals that put their blood, sweat, and tears into building these fascinating machines. The latest installment comes at the end of a turbulent year. Number 009 features a lengthy panhead chopper, a Sportster build from the boys at Uptahn Metalworks, an unconventional BSA bobber, sidecar racing rigs from the Stivason brothers, and much more.
We chat with Ed Jankoski about his Uptahn Metalworks Sportster chopper, the motorcycle community, and his wild trip to Maine this past summer.
Brothers Mike and Sean Stivason give a glimpse into competitive sidecar racing and their BSA A65 and Yamaha XS650 rigs.
Tony Provenzano keeps busy at his tattoo studio throughout the week, but days off are reserved for navigating his ridiculously long panhead around the Ohio Valley.
A modern take on a British classic from the father/son team of Randy and Kyle Feather.
We talk with Nick Miller about his 1979 shovelhead, a bike that embodies everything that people love about choppers.
For a motorcycle camping getaway outside of the city, look no further than Raccoon Creek State Park.
No kickstand, no problem. We check out the first-time chopper build from Heath Hildreth.
