Fuel Café/Rockerbox founder Scott Johnson and his crew are at it again with the Mama Tried Motorcycle Show so look the hell out. This one's for anybody with a taste for oily exhaust fumes, rusty steel, cheap beer, and rock & roll.

"This show features 50+ motorcycles built by fabricators of all stripes- whether it be a flat-tracker, hill climber, chopper or bar hopper. Mama Tried was founded to bring together the many worlds of motorcycles, builders, fans and riders that exist throughout the heartland and beyond. Keeping the stoke going all winter long."

The Greasy Hands Preachers - Kickstart The Film

"He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist." - St. Francis of Assisi

In Issue Twelve we gave you a glimpse behind the scenes of the documentary The Greasy Hands Preachers. The film is a candid look into the work, lives, and motivations of Shinya Kimura, Deus Ex Machina, Blitz Motorcycles, Roland Sands, and El Solitario. Shot entirely on Super 16mm film The Greasy Hands Preachers is the contemporary successor to On Any Sunday. It's a perfect depiction of the intangible bond between man and machine, the purity of that relationship, and the endless pursuit of adventure, creation, and speed. 

The movie stands to deliver on its promise of being one of the definitive motorcycle films of our times and needs funds for promotion, production, and distribution. Now you have the chance to help bring this film to life and contribute to The Greasy Hands Preachers film Kickstarter campaign.
