Case Study


1903 Café



After three years of declining sales, Harley’s ridership was aging and the brand needed to reach younger markets. Harkening back to Harley’s storied past and 1960s café racer culture, 1903 Café drew in a younger market to the brand by generating 5.5% sales growth, 1200 test rides, and 50 million media impressions including a front page in the Toronto Star business section, and interview with Harley’s CEO on Business News Network.

To promote it, we hired the Toronto Ink Company to developed an ink made from the actual coffee the café served and printed posters with the texture and scent of real coffee.
