Caffeine and Gasoline highlights the culture’s gritty allure and transformation as it slowly migrated from the United Kingdom to the United States, converting millions of young people to motorcycle fanatics obsessed with making their machines run faster. The film explores the current growing modern-classic movement while uncovering a large and varied group drawn to the surviving subculture within the subculture of motorcycle riding. Caffeine & Gasoline: Evolution of the American Rocker delves into the history of the Rockers and the cafe clubs where they started the movement, exploring the renewed interest in these unique bikes on the other side of the pond and their impact on American youth. Tracing its roots from 1960’s East London and the legendary 59 Club, cafe racer motorcycle culture and the Rocker movement originally drew from American music and fashion to create their own brand of teen rebellion and counter-culture, done up British-style.
