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.

    Watson, you genius! Would have loved to see how you set up those rolling stop motion shots.

    Thanks guys!

    @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.
