Ampal x BLUE GROOVE CHOPPERS Strapback - Black - $ 48.00
10 years ago, I was fortunate to ride my friend Ryu's '59 ironhead chopper around the beautiful beach town of Kamakura, out side of Tokyo. One especially memorable stop was at Blue Groove Vintage Cycles - a small two story shop overflowing with an amazing collection of crusty original Harley choppers, customs, stock bikes, parts, guitars etc. ran by the king of cool - Taka. A friendship was formed over a shared love of old bikes, music and beach town life.
During my trip for Mooneyes, I returned to the now much bigger, but still overflowing Blue Groove shop and we finalized plans for our first hats. We chose their "eagle" logo for a vintage inspired embroidered felt patch - at first it looks like a classic motorcycle/vintage racing logo, but its actually a reference to the traditional eagle kite’s flown in Japan.

These hats are incredibly well made. But the fact they offer exchanges opposed to returns has always been strange and only comes across as greedy.
