A Tribute to Classic Motorcycles

Posted on May 8, 2011 by Scott in Classic, Video. 14 comments

This cool little movie was sent to us by Oscar who is a Pipeburn reader from Barcelona, Spain. Oscar is not quite a professional film maker but he shot this piece as a tribute to the classic motorcycle group he is a member of called Squadra Sutge and has done a damn good job in our humble opinions. At 35 years old he is the youngest member of the group that spends most of their time racing, restoring and riding classic motorcycles. The video was shot at the recent Classic Moto event on the Circuito del Jarama, which is a 3.404 km (2.115 mile) race course in Madrid, Spain. The circuit has hosted nine Formula One Spanish Grand Prix with the last being back in 1981 when it was unfortunately deemed too narrow for modern racing.

The bike on the video ‘cover’ is Oscar’s Ducati Darmah which he has converted to a beautiful 900SS replica. You can check out more pics of the Classic Moto event here.

    i love this video. cant stop watching it.

  • Harv’st

    I love it.. It's wonderful !!!

    great video but I'd rather have heard the bikes instead of Johnny Cash cryin up a storm. Innapropriate choice of tunes.

  • Bikes of world champ were racing ther until 1998. Since that Jarama's circuit holds some truck and stock car races, along with private test and lapping, advanced driving class and other events, but it's doomed because despite its history it's old, needs a full revamp and the "spanish brick fever" has put to many high class houses near the circuit. And now they complain about the noise. Sad.

    It's a nice video. Sadly, last weekend we had rain here. Surely, they would had shine a lot at the sun. Rain + Cash looks a little sad to me.

  • @Paddy – Johnny Cash? Inappropriate?! Blasphemy!

    Not quite a professional?? Did you ever see an early Cecil B DeMille flick? This vid rocks, it feels real, expresses both the singular biker striving for individuality and the brotherhood of every rider's competitive nature blended with the inherent desire to help the other guy.

    Beats last night's episode of CSI hands down.

    Terrrrible choice of song.

  • lovely film but as much as I like Jonny Cash, I would rather listen to the motors. Thats the only soundtrack you ever need:-)

    Great literature takes you there in your mind. Great film making makes you smell the sausage. I have smelt the sausage. I have felt the rain. I have been to Spain with my brothers.
