Buffalo Bill: il Negozio

Buffalo Bill & Johnny ThundersThe mythical days of the "summer of love" in the S. Francisco of 1968 only left us a few things. One of the few groups of that time which still has its followers is the Grateful Dead which can rely upon a very high number of fans: the Dead Heads. Buffalo Bill belongs to them: listening to "Blues for Allah", he works on pieces of strong leather, forging them as he likes to create seat and other similar psychedelic things. You won't find such peculiar works at no other dealer, decorated items which refer to undisputed masters of psychedelic art such as the incredible Rick Griffin. "Cobra" seats reminding of California, leather bags which cannot but find their place on any lover's motorcycle; belts, suitcases, leather (or other) clothing, boots, various accessories and many more. Countless totally hand-made items which can be adapted to meet the needs of anyone and which will attract whoever considers "Easy Rider" as the cult movie always on show in his/her personal film library.
