Piston & Chain began as an informal weekly motorcycle maintenance gathering in Matt Work’s San Francisco home garage (a pretty nice garage with nice tools and several really nice bikes). As a group, we’d collaborate on difficult (and easy) motorcycle projects while simultaneously meeting like-minded (bike-minded!) enthusiasts. It became obvious that there was a lot of interest within the San Francisco motorcycle community to have a shared workspace and a community hub from which to create, inspire and propagate motorcycle adventures.

Today we’re in a bigger workshop, but we continue to build a community where motorcycle adventure is celebrated by enthusiasts and tinkerers of all styles and skill levels. In our SoMa space, you’ll find a shared workspace, community tools, special events, mechanical instruction and a rotating carousel of nice bikes. Come in, check us out, and learn more about our membership benefits.
