Moto build film
« on: December 14, 2013, 05:40:09 PM »
In "Cafe Racer Season 4 - ep 4" (see the Campfire Talk thread), there's a KTM rebuild which has elicited some strong response from Scottie, and probably others are thinking what he's saying.

I'd like to draw your attention to another video made by the college-age son of a very good friend of mine.  The video features a steampunk-style rebuild of an old BMW airhead by an acquaintance of mine, the result of which would probably elicit similar reactions in some of you.

But the video isn't really about the bike at all - it's more about the creative process and a remarkable guy whom I'm sure many of you here will be able to relate to.  If you'd like to spend 15 minutes watching a really well-made video by very talented young friend, it's worthwhile:

Taking a well engineered functional motorcycle and in the name of art creating something like this is beyond me. I am more impressed with builders who take a concept and make it functionally better. Very professional video production though. Now that is art!

I may have said it before here, but it bears repeating:

My father always said, there's only two kinds of music in this world... good music and bad music.  His point was, if you like it, it's good to you, and that's what counts.

Personally, I'm not too fond of the bike.  But I sure respect the builder and his ideals...

Ahh... that Paul Teuttle.

Cyrus, I'd have to say that from what I've seen, I don't think he's anything like Paul Teuttle...  ;)

Frankly Paul and his kid just hire guys to design and build the bikes, although he sure made a lot of money over the years. Smart business man.   ERC

It's the style, ya 'know, just screwing all sorts of things on that relate to the "Theme". That process does exist in nature however. There is a certain crab that applies all sorts of debris to it's shell, obviously hoping for a reality show of it's own... ;D

It's nuts, but I can appreciate the amount of work in that piece.

   I enjoyed the video.  Different, but it is good music for the builder ,and that's what counts as well ..... I get a seance that he is not building it for us, but he has some idea's in his head that he wants to work out. Pretty Cool...

A most beautiful mess from a beautiful mind!
Thanks for sharing, mattsz!
