Hogslayer was a dual-engine Norton drag bike that raised hell on drag strips across middle America in the ’70s. It’s story has been painstakingly been pieced together in a film called Hogslayer: The Unapproachable Legend, which will debut Aug. 18 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Sunset Motors Racing Team’s unrivaled innovation and unbridled courage as they faced unyielding challengers throughout the United States and Europe in the 1970s. The original Hogslayer dragster is presently on permanent exhibit at the National Motorcycle Museum in the United Kingdom; however its successor, the Hogslayer triple-engine Norton dragster, will be on display at the premiere.
Hosting the Hogslayer premiere, the Oriental Theatre is a Milwaukee landmark with its ornate East Indian motif. For the premiere, an exhibit of fine Nortons and other British motorcycles will be on exhibit throughout the lobby. The world champion race team stars of the documentary, TC Christenson and John Gregory, will be greeting fans prior to show time. The event is being organized by the British Biker Cooperative, a Hogslayer documentary sponsor. This is a one-time event of it’s kind, produced exclusively for the debut of the Hogslayer documentary.
