Brittown DVD review

May 21st, 2008 Jesper Bram 5 Comments » | View blog reactions

Just watched Brittown the new motorcycle movie from the guys behind Chopper Town – The Sinners. Brittown follows a guy called Meatball who excels in building vintage British motorcycles like Triumph, BSA etc.

The movie is loaded with paralyzing moments of cool vintage motorcycles being put to actual use. The filmmakers Scott Di Lalla and Zack Coffman has a remarkable knack of finding people who appreciate old motorcycles for what they where made for, which is riding. Instead of old geezers restoring vintage motorcycles to period perfect mint condition, and maybe ride them once a year if at all.

Mantle piece museum motorcycles is definitely not what Brittown is about. The amount of (ab)use these bikes take is amazing. Dirt tracks, motocross, race track and café racing, you name it. One of my favorite parts is when they participate in a local motocross race alongside modern cross bikes. After the race one of Meatballs friends grinningly admits that vintage safety gear might not be up to modern standards, while wearing an open face helmet and a nose bleed.

I could go on about praising this movie, but I have to run out and find myself an old British dirt bike. Oh! one more thing before I check out. When Meatball assembles the Triumph engine he’s rebuilding in the movie, as far as I could see he doesn’t use any gaskets. What the heck is that about? Am I missing something?

Highly Recommended: Verdict: 5/5 helmets

Where to buy brittown DVD
You can get the region free DVD at the choppertown store. Buy a copy for your buddy as well. We need to make sure Zack and Scott can afford to make more of these brilliant movies.
