‘The Delivery’ by Old Empire Motorcycles

Posted on November 21, 2013 by Scott in Video. 16 comments

A few months back we featured Old Empire Motorcycles stunning Royal Enfield Bullet which received much praise from you guys. This time they have sent us a little film they made about delivering a Honda CB250 Superdream they call ‘The Hunter’ to one of their friends and customers. The journey starts in Suffolk, England – where their workshop is based – and then follows them as they travel over 1000 miles, eventually arriving in the south of France and surprising their friend.

Apart from the fact it has been shot well and has an engaging story, the thing I love is the honesty of the video. The fact that they left in the ‘uncool’ bits, like not being able to do up the helmet properly (which I’m guessing was given to them by Ruby for the film). Plus also showing the bike breaking down on its first ride – which is completely normal but they could have easily left it out. I’m glad they didn’t. Everyone loves a road trip, and this little film has made me want to go on one, real bad.

    Beautiful film, thanks for sharing!
