Hogslayer: The Unapproachable Legend

Anyone familiar with motorcycle drag racing has heard of Hogslayer, the famous dual-engine Norton dragster. And it’s only appropriate that the most successful drag racing bike of the 1970s have its story told through a sharp-looking documentary film.

Thanks to a post on the Motorcycle Classics Facebook page by fan Steve Becker, we’ve got the promotional trailer for the film, aptly titled “Hogslayer: The Unapproachable Legend.” The film is still being put together and the production company, The Edge, Ltd., is still looking for more documentary materials. What they’ve already put together for this trailer looks pretty cool, though.

We did a little more digging and found the following description for the film on the Hogslayer Documentary Facebook page:

“‘Hogslayer’ documents the story of the origin of the Sunset Motors Race Team including the design, development, and racing of the famous Hogslayer dragster winning multiple world championships in the 1970s. ‘Hogslayer’ is bench racing at its best as told by TC Christenson and John Gregory from the original Sunset Motors in Kenosha, Wisconsin. This is a David and Goliath story of the Sunset Motors Team taking command of motorcycle drag racing through their brilliant innovation and raw courage racing a dual-engine Norton dragster against the best the world had to offer.”

So, without further ado, here’s the promo trailer for “Hogslayer: The Unapproachable Legend:”
