Finally: The definitive movie about the custom moto scene

We’re surprised it’s taken so long. The ‘alt moto’ movement has been on fire for at least a decade, but it’s never made the jump onto the big screen. Oil In The Blood is the first film to catalog the builders, riders and artists who are driving the scene forward. It’s directed by Gareth Maxwell Roberts, a founding member of the Bike Shed club in London and the possessor of an unfeasibly large Rolodex. Gareth knows everybody in the business—and the cast list feels like a Who’s Who of the ...

A minute in, the visuals switch to a forest setting, and we catch a glimpse of the Spanish crew’s latest bikes.

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 16 July, 2017

A trio of Harley Sportster desert sleds from Spain, an immaculate BMW R80 from Australia, and a Benelli cafe racer from Italy. Decisions, decisions… BMW R80 by Ellaspede It’s been said, many times over, that old Beemers have been done to death. It’s true that their predominance makes it hard to stand out from the crowd, but when one comes from experts like Ellaspede, we’re still gonna swoon. As Ellaspede’s Hughan Seary says, “The lines of a bike are often overlooked or misunderstood.” Obviou...
