Hammarhead Industries Custom V7 Guzzi

Wayward1Wayward2On January 18th at the New York City Ace Hotel was premiered a custom built V7 Guzzi motorcycle by Philadelphia shop Hammarhead Industries. Faithful to his philosophy “Honor the past but never look back”, James Hammarhead loves to mix the right amount of vintage cool and of modern flair.

    Cool scoot…..
    And a great slogan on their web page:

    “…Honor the past but never look back…

    Certainly worth remembering.

    Hate it! They have taken a really sexy V7 and totally buggered it up. Proportions are all wrong (seat and tank) – but that’s just my view…

    Be careful with Hammarhead Industries we made a deposit on a bike and were told the bike would be ready to ship in two weeks in November and are still awaiting a response. Very poor business and terrible customer service. Left several voicemails and emails and still no word. Not one person will respond to us….pathetic. This guys will take your money and run.

    To Angry Customer:

    From what I have been told, Hammarhead Industries takes deposits and does not follow thru with building bikes.

    If you don’t have your bike yet it’s probably not coming. Take it to a lawyer.

    This particular Hammarhead effort has an ungainly stance,is amateur level and is out of proportion ugly.The Guzzi its based on is a B-grade refugee bike model from about 1978 that was never really any good to begin with decades ago.Stripping the paint of a perfectly new tank and fumbling around with a few bolt-on details is not custom building or “industrial design”.The level of hipster cool has decended from quite novel and entertaining,to follow fashion monkey: junkie.
