Default Junk Motorcycle Magazine UK

Hey guys I just thought I'd give you a quick heads up that Junk Motorcycle Magazine is launching next week here in the UK and it will be available on subscription to folks in the US. It's strictly old school motorcycles with a twist plus the occasional rat rod or 2 & we don't take ourselves too seriously..
Anyone interested in subscribing whether in the UK or the US please email me at billywhiz22@yahoo.com or editor@junkmotorcyclemagazine.com


Thanks to Dragon for getting it done... Ta Doug!

Happy Xmas JJers.

Hey thanks again to everyone that has subscribed so far! Junk really is a one man band - we don't have a "publicity" dept - it's just me but I couldn't have made this magazine happen without the help of a lot of good friends - bike builders and riders alike.. It's just the same with subscribers - we can't do it without your support guys -so thanks!
I would love to get one subscriber in every state of the union - off the top of my head we have AZ, NH, NC, so far BE THE FIRST IN YOUR STATE!
Junk subs cost $35 for one year plus a free extra issue (#1) - we publish Dec 8th 2010, March, June & Sept 2011 - quarterly but you get 5 issues if you subscribe now.
Paypal accepted billywhiz22@yahoo.com is the paypal address. I'm shipping next week.
Thanks once again & a Merry Xmas JJers.
Billy, editor Junk m/c Mag

I think that was the only point I didn't clarify! Postage FREE to US. $35 it is for a year (4 issues) + I'll bung in an extra issue free too!
Billy

BTW LAST POSTING DATE FOR XMAS FROM UK IS 10TH DEC - THIS FRIDAY SO ANYONE WANTING XMAS READING GET YER REQUEST IN THIS WEEK PLEASE.

Junk Motorcycle Magazine ships 7th December now! ANYONE SUBSCRIBING BEFORE 10TH DEC WILL GET THEIR COPY BEFORE THE XMAS HOLS (unless the post office fucks up) ..

UPDATE: I despatched the subscriber's copies of Junk to the U.S. this afternoon. We have (in no special order) GA, CA, OH, AR, NH & NC so far which is really cool!
So c'mon guys get scribblin' on the email billywhiz22@yahoo.com and order a subscription now!
Junk Motorcycle Magazine is a slice of true British eccentricity & ideal with the turkey & a bottle of JD or whatever is your tipple over the Xmas hols.. Issue #1 is limited in numbers and one day will be worthless on Egay!
I might add: Junk kills 99% of household germs, never needs washing and our research suggests subscribers to Junk M/C Mag get laid 50% more frequently than other couch potatoes.. OK right - did you notice I didn't bump this post but edited it? Gotta look after Dragon's legacy. I'm Billy, I love you and wish you a very Merry Xmas!

Dang - just checked the postage to the US on my receipt - pricy but oh well, get 'em while I can afford to send 'em! Still $35 inc postage for 5 issues.

Hey subscriber guys.. Please give me a little feedback - good or bad (but go easy on the bad.. !) HERE WOULD BE A GOOD PLACE actually..
Also interested in the time it takes the magazines from the UK to reach your doorsteps.. Still need subscriber test pilots in NV, NY, FL, MT, MA, MN, SC, TX and a bunch of others too!!

Billy,

I got mine and it's total JUNK!!! Great mag man, keep up the good work. I like the full size format and glossy cover and pages. Layout and design are great. Bike features are great too, good mix of bikes!

BTY It arrived in GA on Monday 12/15/10.

I'm pleased you like it man! It got to Georgia quicker than some addresses in the U.K. btw!! What's that all about? Keep the feedback coming guys.. I'm working on some really neat features for issue #2 already.

I got it a few days back, maybe monday. Haven't gotten too far into it yet but it looks good so far. The write up on the Barely F'ing Legal Arial was cracking me up.

There's a new tax here cuz of the energy crisis and global warming.. it's cheaper to run a bike without a headlight I think the tax might be linked to the outputage in watts of ur light actually..







sorry ..
