San Francisco’s Community Motorcycle Garage has CLOSED

After 8 years, Piston & Chain has closed.

Thank you all for the friendship, rides, tire changes and lost 10mm sockets.


Piston & Chain was a community workshop and social club, bringing together motorcycle enthusiasts and tinkerers of all styles and skill levels. In its San Francisco location, it had a shared workspace, community tools, special events, mechanical instruction and a rotating carousel of nice bikes.

Our community of enthusiasts strived to create a lasting institution that cultivated the spirit of motorcycle adventure.
