We’re happy to announce a brand new product category; the Fuel Press Print Shop. We will be offering limited edition art prints, designed in house by our staff. Each design will relate to Fuel Magazine or Tank Moto in some way, with this first design being an extension to FM18 that was released last year.
These prints have been screen printed by hand in Melbourne on to 220gsm Fabriano paper. Measuring 70 x 50cm, this design is limited to a run of 100 and will never be printed again. Read more…

The Tank Moto issue 07 launch party is on next weekend, and we can now start to show the custom helmet designs that will be raffled off on the night. In collaboration with Gearhead Monkey Garage in Jakarta and Peter Stevens Motorcycles, Australia’s premier motorcycle and motorcycle parts & accessories retailer, we have set out on a custom helmet painting project. To read about how it came about and for some work in progress imagery, head over to our older blog post about it. Four of the helmets have been designed by Fuel Press staff, the other two by Gearhead Monkey Garage.
Five of the helmets will be given away on the night. Just come along on the night, and every Fuel Press product purchased will receive a complimentary raffle ticket to enter the draw. The draw will take place at 8.30pm and the winners have the pick of any one of the five helmets and plenty more other goodies that will be available on the night.
Not to forget interstate folks who can’t make it, all customers who make a purchase through our online shop between now and midday Friday 5th Melbourne time and enter promo code CUSTOM at checkout will enter a draw to win the sixth helmet. The draw will be done Friday afternoon and the winner will receive their helmet in the mail after the launch. Australian customers only.
We’re kicking off with the first of two helmets designed by our Gearhead Monkey Garage comrades in Jakarta…
Helmet Title: Naga Paksi.
Description: Naga Paksi translates to ‘Dragon Axis’ in Indonesian. The story behind this is that the artist Fahmi Freeflow would always create designs from local stories and legends. Hence this ‘Naga Paksi’ which is a traditional art from Cirebon in West Java where the dragon is pictured carrying a carriage.
This Dragon and Carriage was a symbol from the Sutanate Cirebon and more specifically the palace Keraton Kanoman, which was created est 1608 which was used by the Sultan Anom I. The artist has though of using the Barong, Batik or Garuda motif. However as these are commonly used he instead thought of the dragon which has been missing from his creations, and to his knowledge this is the first time created in relation to any automotive industry.
