Hot Rod Builder and Filmmaker Brian Darwas hit the road on a coast-to-coast antique motorcycle endurance run, The Motorcycle Cannonball, and he made a film about the experience.
In Dawas’ epic, you get a front row seat for parking lot engine rebuilds as the top guys in the motorcycle industry machine parts in the back of their vans to keep their bikes on the road.
“I followed some friends as they rode on the first Motorcycle Cannonball. The run was all pre-1916 motorcycles. Some were single cylinder engines, some had no transmissions (just a belt and a tensioner),” Darwas said. “They started in Kitty Hawk, NC and rode clear across the country to Santa Monica, CA. Literally “Coast to Coast”, on all secondary roads, no highways! . . and since I like to witness pain and suffering I tagged along and made a movie about the trip.”
