ART&DESIGN: Steel Toe Press and the Chicago Motorcycle Culture

Back in 2005, Larry Fletcher founded the Ton-Up Chicago chapter, along with an events coordinating company called Steel Toe Press. Steel Toe Press is behind all the major motorcycle events in the city, and is responsible for Chicago's flourishing motorcycle culture. If you've ever lived in a place where there are plenty of motorcycles and no gatherings, that's because there's no one like Steel Toe Press planning all your events, scheduling bi-weekly meet ups, booking bands and venues, and getting the word out to the community.

Larry's partner, Martin Cimek is the man behind getting the word out. Martin runs an illustration and graphic design company, called MCD, and is responsible for all the event posters and art work for Steel Toe Press.

Here are some of the posters from past Mods vs. Rockers events.
All posters are silk screened, 18x24" prints, and are available at
