There are so many cultures and sub cultures in London. If you thought up a club or social group for something, guarantee there would be one already existing. London/UK was the birthplace of the café racer culture in the 60’s lead by companies like Triumph and Norton. Every now and then you will stumble across a hangout spot or store where the old rockers congregate. I was lucky this day to pass by when there was some beauties lined up outside a leather supplies store.
