Waiting Out Winter
The cold Philadelphia winters might keep us off our motorcycles but that down time is always well spent making our old bikes better and stronger in preparation of the next riding season. In collaboration with our own Andrew Watson, this video pays homage to all of us spending the winter months in our workshops…

cb360t new rubber
Cleaned up the wheels. Inside the rims was rusted pretty bad but they cleaned up nicely with a wire brush. I got out of work late tonight but was still able to make it down to the UPS store on Oregon before it closed to pick these up. FRESH RUBBER! Duro HF318 400/18 Got them […]
Absolutely brilliant! 🙂
great video guys, definately got me feeling the vibe!
uhhhh, this is awesome.
fantastic! but where was the bucket of monk wipes? ha ha ha ha
Watson, you genius! Would have loved to see how you set up those rolling stop motion shots.
@devyn, yea man i used a motion control slider and an intervalometer for the time-lapse… the one involved pretty much building a shelf above the lift… took 40 minutes to rig, but was so totally worth it!
Great work again Andrew, really conveys the shop as the living, breathing thing that it is.
@billbraille – the monk wipes are right on top of the white cabinet, next to the toolbox, in the right hand corner of the screenshot.
@devyn – I was sick, but i was there fixing the vending machine.
Great video. I’m doing the exact same thing but in jersey. This video made the pipe burn blog btw.
Made me all warm and tingly inside. Job well done.
This video or shall I say, short film is so good! Great job!
Man, wish my shop was so roomy and heated……. great vid.
Looks very cozy and warm. I lived in Littleton, Mass. – Ft. Devins. Ten foot snow drifts, etc. Now I live in Austin, Tx, we ride all winter, but the summers, month of over 100+ degrees. If you don’t get to where you are going by noon, it’s like riding in hell..But, you can always get in the shade, and have a cold one, or head to the rivers, lakes and springs for a dip..Thanks, J & G
Just saw it was on wrenchmonkees’ blog….cool.
