Based in Philadelphia, PA, Hammarhead Industries is the baby of James Hammarhead. He’s turned his passion for 1950s motorcycles into a platform for his own creations. His bikes, like the above Woodsman 500, are lean and mean. They are minimalist rides inspired by the past and geared for modern urban life.

The Hammarhead site launched a few weeks back (and has been getting great press so far). All photography by my friend and neighbor Ryan Miller.

A closer look at the Woodsman 500, which is built off a Royal Enfield Electra X, after the jump.
