‘9 out of 10 people haven’t seen a pre 1916 motorcycle’
In 2012 Cine Meccanica hosted the NYC Premier of White Knuckle, and in 2013 White Knuckle took home the People’s Choice award at the 1st Annual Motorcycle Film Festival. Since then, NY based Filmmaker and traditional hot rod builder Brian Darwas has completed and released his 5th documentary ‘This Is Long Beach‘, a look at the Cavaliers Car Club, and is currently working on his 6th film. If you’re a fan of hot rods, motorcycles, and custom culture, do yourself a favor and keep an eye on Brian and Atomic Hot Rods!

‘i was constantly tinkering to find the sweet spot’
Witness as these bikes are pushed past their limits! Get an upfront look at parking lot engine rebuilds! and watch as the top guys in the motorcycle industry machine parts in the back of their vans to keep their bikes on the road, and in the race!
‘The hardest thing was to realize that everything moved forward at 40mph…all day long’
I followed some friends as they rode on the first Motorcycle Cannonball. The run was all pre-1916 motorcycles. Some were single cylinder engines, some had no transmissions (just a belt and a tensioner). They started in Kitty Hawk, NC and rode clear across the country to Santa Monica, CA. Literally “Coast to Coast”, on all secondary roads, no highways! . . and since I like to witness pain and suffering I tagged along and made a movie about the trip. – Brian Darwas
