We've reviewed several documentaries from One World Studios -Choppertown Nation (ChopperTown - The Sinners, Brittown, etc). They were all good documentaries of folks around the country who make and ride choppers.
But this one is different, since it has a personal touch to it. The documentary is about one of the movie directors, Scott Di Lalla, who build up his own bopper, the Harbortown Bobber. Using a 69 Triumph T1R6c bobber (just the frame really, nothing left on the motorcycle, and the engine of a '71 Triumph 650), Scott visits the country's gurus of customization, and uses their expertise to make his own bobber.
It took 2 years to build the motorcycle, but now Scott has his own beauty. The documentary follows the trial & tribulations of the bike build, with interviews of the builders, interspersed with (mostly rock) music.
As motorcycle documentaries go, this one is Discovery Channel material. It's a step-by-step on how to make your own...for all budding or confirmed motorcycle builders, but not OCC style, but real style. These bikes are meant to ride, not for exhibitions. Great stuff.
