Well the delivery, the fine production quality and story-telling was more important than the project itself. I couldn't imagine ever having the desire to create a bike like that myself. My projects tend to be given more to expedience, practicality or frugality. What moved me was how Seth tapped into and evoked that therapeutic euphoria I experience in the garage immersed in a project, and particularly while metal working. He is so right, strike that first arch and the world goes away. Time does stand still. When I'm welding and grinding I don't even get hungry, for hours on end.

I have almost no patience for most videos these days. The motorcycle-related films are some of the worst of the lot.

This one...I watched from start to finish. So much wisdom...and great cinematography, too.

Thanks.

That was awesome.

Yeah the bike is ugly as hell, but that was part of the point!

Very Post-Apocalyptic Punk as the builder stated. The guy at the end was the best. My wife even enjoyed watching the video. I already warned her...I am on my way to being that guy.

Well done video, but those are some gross looking motorcycles.
