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.
The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride is an event for Cafe Racers, Bobber, Flat Tracker, Retro, Classic, Quirky Motorcycles and their owners. It is a worldwide event taking place on the same day in each respective time zone. It is a day where no matter what your work/social/life status may be everyone is equally distinguished. The link that brings the world together on this day are these two/three words 'Distinguished' & 'Cafe Racers'.
On September 30th, distinguished gentlemen across the world gathered together to ride their motorcycles. 108 bike turned up for the Singapore's ride.
This short is about Cafe Racer Genova team, to whom I belong.
