Little video of a beautiful rebuilt old school motorbike.
Honda 1971 CB450 "Bonita Applebum".
More info on the bike can be found here which is where the video is hosted.
I shot with a Canon 5d mkII and 550d using 50mm f1.4 and 30mm f1.4 lenses.
Used Super Flat profile, graded & post in After Effects.
Some location sound was captured on a Tascam DR1 and on camera.
The song is "Some Kinda Love" by The Velvet Underground.

A Film i shot about Dustin Kott,
the Californian bike builder who makes custom British style Cafe racers out of old japanese bikes.
I met Dustin in LA on a Harley-Davidson shoot, and was intrigued
how a classic American who looks like he should be building
Choppers, was passionate about little old Brit bikes,
and was using cheap 70s Japanese bikes to make lovely custom Cafes.
