Pretty good short film. Fella makes a lot of good points within the 6 minutes. A lot of similar messages posted here and it looks like hes one of us.

This guy is a kindred sprit -- enjoys riding and recycling/reusing and tinkering with old bikes.

I want to know about that cap he's wearing under his helmet.

Also, I can't see myself with the big beard, but he wears it with style.

Great stuff, awesome philosophy. I wish there were more shops like his around focusing on reviving older bikes instead of focusing on the latest and greatest.

Fun watch. I'd love to get down to 'Straya to ride, looks absolutely gorgeous!
My real takeaway from this though, was that I really needa boiler suit.

Same here but the beard is a really natural look for him.

Just recently I have become aware of film editing, and a tip of the hat goes to Henry Smith for the well done editing on this short.
