      For sure Matt, Motivations behind this film were exactly that. For the Talent pool within Australia its severly under represented on an international stage.
      I had a lengthy conversation about this sort of movement with a magazine editor yesterday. People are hungry for the hand made.

      Purpose Built Moto im retiring and sweeet so do i read watch videos and i found this book on the internet and it is called ' the build: how the masters deaign and build motorcycles by Hoekman Jr robert should i buy it it is about To lunge into the darkness of an open highway on a creation all your own. More than a motorcycle, this is about your identity. It's about building something as unique as you are. In The Build, Robert Hoekman Jr compiles insights from today's best builders to help you plot out your own beautiful beast.

      The best advice you can get to start your journey is to buy a shitty motorcycle and try to make it better. Learn and progress

      The film is about 7 blokes that have dedicated their working life to building motorcycles.

    So many things I like!, so many things I don't, "surfing" on a motorcycle is the way Indian Larry dies,(R.I.P.) the way you guys and girl rides without any riding gear (just because the look) is careless, welding without protective equipment is not profesional, that's what I don't like, the work you do with the bikes; I love it (most of it), film quality just awesome!

    It was pleasant to watch this video. I watch a lot of American style bike building shows but get turned off by the ego b.s. they carry on with. Listening to the blokes in this video was inspiring, they really love what they do and are humble.
    Some of the shots like riding near the ocean reminded me of the Stone movie. It gave the video a real atmosphere that was like that era.
    I love riding my Hayabusa in Northern NSW and my favourite part of the ride is up the ranges south of Murwillumbah and then seeing the ocean in the distance. I stop for a pie and coffee at the Moo Moo Cafe In Mooball. They have old motorcycles and cars on display in the garage.
    A really down to earth way of making the video. Well done.

      Mark as the filmmakers I don't have any advice for building a bike but I can tell you we were keen to make a documentary but also feared of the hoops. We started on smaller projects and honed the skills. I think the main thing is just get started on something and learn from your mistakes. Cheers Mark! Glad you enjoyed the film

    I realy enjoyed that.. Some Beautiful Bikes, some not to everyones taste.. But.. They were all works of art created from whatever they could find.. I can relate to that!! As that Big ex racer guy said, "You cant go to a sidecar shop and buy sidecar stuff, you have to make it all yourself!" That's the bit i love.. Making the stuff you cant get!
    And that Big Guy's GSX looked F*ckin Beautiful!!
    Thanks for a great Film.. You get my "Like & Sub"..

    I've always been bothered with the fact that most custom builders are really superficial and just straight out vain. Caring about how oneself look, hanging on a corner somewhere, and if others look at you and your bike. It's like kindergarden all over again.
    These people don't care much about riding at all - that's just a masquerade show for the blind.

      I don’t know about you Tom, but I’m usually too busy in the shed working on bikes so they can be ridden, Not parking them on street corners so we can pick fights with people who want to look at them. I mean, the shows we take them too would have a pretty shitty atmosphere if that was the case.. I’m pretty sure this whole film was the total opposite of what you’re claiming freerider, showing that we’re just a community if average joes working together, enjoying it and having pride in what we do, nothing vain about that. This wasn’t an episode of American biker build off.
