About Bike EXIF: The premier custom motorcycle website

BikeEXIF founder, Chris Hunter

BikeEXIF, the global showcase for custom motorcycles, was founded in 2008 by Chris Hunter. Chris took his passion for motorcycles and turned it into one of the World’s largest websites for motorcycle enthusiasts, garnering several million pages views per month during the cafe racer heydays. As the entity grew (and grew and grew) Chris realized he could no longer handle the overwhelming success of BikeEXIF on his own, and subsequently sold the site in 2020 to Iron and Air Media.

Iron and Air operated BikeEXIF, still utilizing Chris and longtime contributor Wes Reyneke, and their knowledge to keep the same look, high-profile photography and eye-catching bikes that made BikeEXIF so popular. In late 2022 BikeEXIF again changed hands, this time COLE Publishing, Inc. out of Eagle River, Wisconsin took the handlebars. COLE, who has been publishing in both print and digitally since 1979, has a full team of dedicated writers, photographers and sales staff that will continue to operate the site just as Chris has since 2008.

What does BikeEXIF mean? Well, it stands for ‘Exchangeable Image File format’. This is the data captured by a digital camera when a photo is taken, and often stored within an image file. It’s a nod to our focus on premier photography as well as good bike builds.
