Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins created a body of work that has established him as the father of old-school tattooing. He accomplished this with an unyielding sense of craft and a steadfast determination to do things his own way. To honor his legacy, we sent a team of documentary filmmakers across America on a mission to find craftspeople who embody his spirit today.
We took their footage and turned it into the HOLD FAST video series, profiling individuals who feel as strongly about their work as Sailor Jerry. Along our journey, we discovered James Hammarhead – a neuroscientist who makes stripped-down, vintage-inspired, flat-out gorgeous crafted-to-order custom motorcycles.
We commissioned James and his company Hammarhead Industries to create two custom Solo-X bikes, featuring Norman Collin’s Eagle Flash on the gas tank, along with the Sailor Jerry signature logo. One of the bikes will go to Paul, our East Coast Brand Ambassador. The second bike will be given away through our HAMMARHEAD Facebook app! There are hardly ANY Hammarhead bikes in the world and we’re stupid enough to give one away.
The contest begins May 15th and goes through July 15th.

Hammarhead bikes are based on modern motorcycles (frames and motor) that they re-interpret to be true to elemental motorcycles of the 1950s. The iconic bikes of that era were truly modern in that form followed function. Hammarhead adds to this the technological improvement in performance and longevity, while retaining the classic design and ride experience. Their team hopes to avoid nostalgia, and strive to create simple bikes that work. Now some bike specs for you motorheads:
