A film by Michael Schmidt. This 2012 documentary presented by Dice Magazine and Wild Honey productions features 6 builders as they build and ride.
The film starts out a bit bros being bros, while they explain the bikes they build and how they got into it, rather awkwardly. About half way through though, the pace changes, Spanish guitar kicks in and the fellas become more animated.
Max on painting and looking look down the road through short bars is great and every interview after is grins and tales of the road and wrenching. The film follows the builders from Born Free, to The Brooklyn Invitational, Hell On Wheels MC motocross event, and the El Diablo Run, and by the end you are left curious to see what bikes they’ll build next.
The final scene leaves off in the desert with a chic 70’s style drag race and tooling around the desert scene which is a bit hokey but also reminiscent of so many 70’s chopper flicks screened here at Cine Meccanica…maybe minus a good bike dragging. All in all, a great look at some modern builders all of whom I’m a fan of, and I look forward to seeing the next films by the filmmaker and production teams.
