Hammarhead Industries | “Gasoline & Caffeine Tour: East Meets West”

Posted on August 4, 2011

Hammarhead Industries on Vimeo.

James Hammarhead has been the talk of the modern motorcycle world for a little while now. If you’re into the art and you haven’t heard of Hammarhead Industries, you’ve probably been living under a rock. The company’s based out of Philadelphia and has been creating some excellent classic bikes that have been getting a ridiculous amount of press attention.

Above is the promo video for their current tour (that’s about to wrap up) of the West Coast concluding with a 3 day build of one of their bikes in San Francisco, a process that usually takes 90 days or longer. The feat taking place at the Dogpatch store of Triple Aught Design (address listed after the jump) starting TODAY and ending August 6th. The video’s pretty small so if you really want to get excited about this, open it in Vimeo or just fullscreen it. The music is pretty rad, too.

For further viewing pleasure, I’ve attached some images by my friend Steve Streisguth taken for Hammarhead. Click below for more.

Just an administrative note:

In case you hadn’t already noticed, yesterday we switched over to http://www.theamericanclasic.org, our very own domain name. This marks the beginning of a few changes around here including some upcoming things like the possibility of a guest column, a few more interviews, and quite possibly the launch of The American Classic Shop, at long last. A few of these are further off than need be noted but I like to keep you all in the loop.

That being said, if you have a product and would like it featured in the shop, please find your preferred method of contact here.
