Scott Di Lalla and Zack Coffman, directors of Choppertown: The Sinners, are making another documentary and this time their focus is on the world of old British Bikes.
BRITTOWN – a motorcycle documentary featuring Meatball from the Hell On Wheels bike shop in Anaheim, California.
As a master mechanic, vintage Brit bike connoisseur and dirt-track racer, Meatball splits his time between family, his shop and his rock band Smiling Face Down. Brittown joins Meatball for several months as he heads to races, plays gigs and uses all his skill to turn an old 650 Triumph Bonneville motor into a 130 mph road-ready screamer.
Their previous Choppertown: The Sinners documentary and the followup Choppertown: From the Vault which included material not shown on the first film, had a lot of great reviews especially since the whole feel of their films is very down to earth and not anything like the glitzy or overblown made for TV chopper shows. You get to know the people involved, kind of like riding with them, hanging out in their shop and sharing a few beers. If Brittown is anything like Choppertown, it will be well worth seeing. Scott and Zack say the principal photography is coming to an end and now they just have to edit everything down to final form. Should be a good one. They have a short teaser clip up on their site. Check it out.
