A short impression from the Jokers Car & Motorcycle Show 2011 in Tidaholm, Sweden.
It's easy to see that the motorcycle and car style of the late 50's early 60's is back big time.
Great to see how people are picking up tradition and changing it into something new. We are privileged to live in a time where we can just pick and mix of everything from the 30's to the 60's and make it our own.
Caleb Owens is one of 23 invited motorcycle builders for the Born-Free 4 Vintage Chopper and Classic Cycle Show. Here he is talking about the bike he's building for the show on June 30th 2012 at Oak Canyon Ranch in Orange County, California. more info at http://www.bornfreeshow.com
On sept. 17 2011 a group of guys From a Blog deemed the White Knights In the House of Kolor, from Brooklyn, New York put on a great motorcycle show called the Brooklyn invitational. My bike No. 9 was one of the 20 or so bikes that was invited to this extremely masterful production. Other big names such as Paul cox, Keino, Tom Fugle, Lock Baker, And many many more,were there to be a part of the show. While I was there I decided to take as much footage as I could to put this short video together. I don't think this show will ever be topped as far as the variety of the builders that they invite and the different minds and cultures that come together in one spot to share in a common interest of custom motorcycles. It is a great honor on my part to be amongst these people that have inspired me so much. This video is a sort of token of gratitude for the experience of getting to be a part of it. Thank you Wes, Jeffrey, John, and Keino for having me again
My first short film I made for film school. Motorcycles are a big part of life. I wanted to make a film to show how intimate we get with the road. Most people ride to get away from the daily grind and be alone. Even if you are riding with a friend, your own mind is what you have a conversation with. Others like to just take a drive in their car, but once you ride a motorcycle, the open road is never the same.
