The Rockers, the Leather Boys, the Ton Up Boys – they, and the machines they ride, have all held our fascination for years.
This documentary will briefly examine those roots – the history of Rocker culture and the Cafe Racer clubs that started the movement in a post-war London. However, the focus will be the growing American Rocker movement and its impact on motorcycle culture today.
By interviewing vintage motorcycle club members, Cafe Racer builders, modern Rocker culture enthusiasts, and then culminating with the Duke City Rockers annual Rockers vs. Mods Rally in Albuquerque, New Mexico – Caffeine and Gasoline will explore the Evolution of American Rockers.
