With 6 customers’ motorcycles headed to the west coast, it seemed like a special delivery road trip was required. Introducing the Hammarhead “Gasoline and Caffeine” tour. Hammarhead will spend the next 2 weeks traveling the west coast to visit customers, collaborators, and fellow builders. Our first stop, after a 48 hour drive from Philadelphia, will be Seattle to visit our friends at the Ace Hotel, meet with Ural Motorcycles, and throw a party with Gibson Guitars (a busy Friday).
We will then double back to Ellensburg, Washington for the Overland Rally. There we will spend a few days off-roading, camping, and testing the Hammarhead line. Next stop is Churchill Gloves, makers of our HHI VMX Gloves. Mike Churchill has invited us for a factory visit and talk with the leather workers that bring our gloves to life. Then we head south to visit Raceway Services and see their Norton Manx restoration.
We will wrap the road trip with a three day stand in San Francisco, building a customers’ Jack Pine on site at Triple Aught Design. August 6th we will fire up the completed bike and celebrate with a party in TAD’s store, open and free to the public. Then it’s time to pack up, finish the remaining customer deliveries and book it back east to our day jobs.
