Jordan Hufnagel is not only our friend and one of the raddest people on the globe, he is also a top shelf bicycle crafter. Before setting off on a homemade motorcycle toward South America this summer with no possessions and no plans, he made a fleet of four beautiful bikes for Ace Hotel Portland with his bare hands. We caught the process on film, and rode them all over to the hotel from his workshop in SE one late summer's eve. Along the way, we met cop horses, innocent standers-by and a long-lost part of ourselves, it seems.
When you're staying with us in Portland, you can rent one for the day and roll in style. They have a nice rack on the front (not that kind!) so you can pick up loot and local goods along the way.
This is Ace Hotel. Our channel is made of a bunch of stories about music, art, design, product collaborations, road trips and our friends, as well as musings and pertinent miscellany. If you're feeling what you see, you can also check us out at blog.acehotel.com.
