Pittsburgh Moto was established to document Greater Pittsburgh’s custom motorcycle culture. Our hope is to fuel the community by using our website and independent quarterly magazine as a source that showcases custom bikes, interesting places, and engaging events in our region.
From professional builds to simple garage projects, we strive to cover as many custom choppers, trackers, cafe racers, scramblers, and bobbers that we can. This is about an appreciation of Pittsburgh, the love of motorcycles, and the individuals that put their blood, sweat, and tears into building these fascinating two-wheeled machines.
Our independent magazine is proudly printed in the United States on matte, 80 lb silk paper with perfect binding. With a heavy emphasis on photography, each quarterly issue features custom bikes, interesting places, and engaging events in our region. Although many of the stories align with our website features, we still believe in the artistry of print. Producing a magazine helps preserve the content in a purposeful form. Advertisements are carefully placed in the front and back of each issue. This eliminates the risk of an ad getting lost within the pages and helps the publication maintain a timeless, stylish feel.

WHY ADVERTISE WITH US?
To avoid the restrictions of magazine shelf life, we continue printing and selling all issues indefinitely. This allows customers to purchase or collect past issues, stretching the life of your advertisement long after the initial range.
Every website article showing your ad is showcased throughout our social media pages with paid promotions to boost traffic.
Our creative team has extensive entrepreneurial experience in the fields of publishing, design, and photography. Combined with our passion for motorcycles, we believe Pittsburgh Moto will become an infuential platform that brings more awareness to the local community. In addition to the magazine and website, the goal is to eventually organize events, shows, and rides. Having your company as an advertising partner will help propel these ideas and allow us to consistently document Greater Pittsburgh’s motorcycle culture.
AD EXAMPLES & REQUIREMENTS
To fit the classic look and feel of the magazine, we require that all ads use high resolution images and avoid exceedingly busy design. Remember that each issue has an unlimited lifespan, so your ad should be enduring. Consider that someone might purchase this issue years from now.
