Time Travel to 1950’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Americana
Gasoline is an absolute must for the rock ‘n’ roll enthusiast or hardcore biker fan. Focusing on vintage American biker wear from the 50’s (which parallels 1950’s rock ‘n’ roll American culture), Gasoline showcases selective pieces all hand-picked by the store owner. These range from exclusive leather jackets, dress shirts to biker accessories including boots, helmets and caps. Not only this, Gasoline recreates a captivating biker ‘vibe’ through classic American rock’n’roll music to a display of vintage biker posters. All items in the store with the exception of footwear are exclusively from the 1950’s! They even sell their own original “casquette” biker hats that are made from 50’s denim. Even if you’re not familiar with biker or 50’s rock ‘n’ roll vintage, this antique store without a doubt will be an enthralling visit you would not want to miss if you go vintage shopping in Koenji!
