Hi Everyone

I've lurked around Vital for quite some time, mostly drooling over the bike builds forum. I now have something to contribute that I think this crowd will enjoy.

I've done time lapse photography for a couple years now, but I can't always be out shooting at scenic places and I wanted to put my camera gear to good use. So I combined my photo hobby with my motorcycle hobby and came up with this.

I'm kicking around the idea of doing a full bike rebuild series like this, but if it happens it will be a loooong process. So for now please enjoy!

Don’t piss off the old people - the older they get the less “life in prison” is a deterrent for them!

Amazing! How long does something like that take?

Nice work.

NICE!!!

I'm a photo guy, too, but I can't stand investing more than a crappy snapshot when I'm working on stuff
so you have a TON of respect from me for putting that together. Well done!!!

Toss Gumby in there manipulating the parts removal/installation... smile

Very awesome and informative video. I would like to hear a little voice over kind of explaining what all the parts are, but very neat nonetheless. Thanks man, keep them coming!

Coolest thing I've seen in a while. Good job dude!

That was absolutely brilliant! You need to make more of these, they could become really popular!

I just did my first shock rebuild a few days ago, so I found this especially awesome. Though I'll admit, I started to gasp in fear when I saw the valve stack coming apart!! (as a first timer, I took every precaution possible to keep my stack together) Until I saw it was for a gold valve revalving laughing Killer, amazing, awesome video!!!

Positively, absolutely 110% obsessed with anything MOTO.

I took the first photo for this just over a month ago, and I'd guess I have 40 hours into it. This was my first stop motion so knowing what I know now I might be able to cut that time in half.

I probably have 10 hours into just the sound effects which surprised me. Some I recorded, some I downloaded, and all of them took way longer than expected. But as they they say "sound is half the picture" and I think it's particularly true here.

Thanks for all the feedback everyone!

I kicked around the tutorial idea a bit, but for this video I just wanted something that anyone could enjoy watching casually. There are so many ways I could go with this it's a bit hard to choose a direction.

I won't make promises or try to predict a timeline but I do plan to make more of these. Thanks for watching.
