Hammarhead in the age of mechanical reproduction

Dailies, Galleries -


During the month of March, Hammarhead will exhibit three custom motorcycles at Philadelphia’s Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction gallery.  Most of the collection will be familiar to Hell for Leather readers; however, the exhibition will also include the new Hammar 449, a work in progress.  This urban scrambler will features a bespoke frame, lots of alloy and a 449cc Honda CRF X motor.

      I’m pretty psyched for this show, but come on, you get to ride year round (I’m guessing). The grass is greener and all that, but come on, Aussies have it made! Besides you’ve got Dues Ex Machina…

    I really like art in the age… the music section of their site has videos of great bands like Nurses playing there.

    I’d love to see this, but Philly would be a long ride from Texas.
