When I was a kid we would always hang out at a mate’s garage, messing with mopeds and strapping lawnmower engines to anything from roller-skates to soapbox-cars. If you, like me, can recall that time with a happy smirk, this DVD is for you.
Choppertown – The Sinners, is a documentary on a bunch of lads who never stopped fiddling with gears and engines, but eventually moved on to cars and motorcycles. The documentary evolves around a “Sinner” named Kutty Noteboom, who builds an early sixties style chopper from ground up with the help of his fellow “Sinners”.
It’s not a Discovery, OCC, kind of TV circus where they build bikes only billionaires can afford and buys just to put on their mantelpiece. These guys treasure used parts like gold; they scrounge up and refurbish almost everything they use for the bike. The film is an entertaining story about regular people who have day jobs and live life like the rest of us, but has a strong passion for building motorcycles and actually do it.
