Godspeed in Oakland is the ultimate speed parlour, housing a world-class garage, tattoo shop and bar under the same roof. Owner Dan Mather created this one-of-kind hangout in 2006, where he and friends could soup up their bikes, hoist a beer, and shoot some pool, simultaneously. Now, five years later, this one-of-a-kind gathering spot gets big love from the East Bay Rats, neighborhood buddies and Berkeley professors alike. Waffles by day, go-go dancers by night, and speed records to boot.
In the following video, Godspeed’s top mechanic, Joel, talks shop – Harleys, helmets and horsepower.
