The documentary on ‘Hogslayer,’ a twin-engined Norton drag bike that was virtually unbeatable in the ’70s, is still in the production stage but the film received a big boost by recently signing on four sponsors.
Excitement continues to build as the first sponsors have signed on to the new independent documentary about the multi-world champion motorcycle drag racing legend – the Hogslayer – slated for a late summer 2011 release. Its producer, The Edge Ltd., is thrilled to welcome the first four Hogslayer documentary sponsors: the International Norton Owners Association, the British Biker Cooperative, EPIC Creative, and Sunset Motors.
The International Norton Owners Association (INOA) is an organization dedicated to the Norton motorcycle enthusiast. The INOA has over 1700 members primarily in the United States and Canada with additional members representing the United Kingdom, Australia, and a variety of other countries.
