RUSH OF BLOOD: Oil In The Blood movie release

Posted on October 14, 2019 by Scott in Video. No Comments

Today is a day that many custom bike enthusiasts around the world have been patiently waiting for. If you weren’t able to get to one of the screenings of the ‘Oil in the Blood’ movie, then today you can watch it on Amazon, iTunes, Google or even buy the DVD. If you don’t know what Oil in the Blood is, then you are in for a treat. It’s a documentary feature film on the contemporary custom motorcycle culture that has experienced a renaissance in recent years. Director Gareth Maxwell Roberts spent three years travelling the world documenting the custom bike scene and interviewing most of the key people involved in it.

To celebrate this epic release, they have given us an exclusive short film about the collaboration between TW Steel and deBolex using an Energica Eva electric bike as a donor. The short film takes us through deBolex’s design process and the challenges he faced building an electric bike. We also discover how TW Steel went about creating a unique time piece to go hand in hand with this impressive motorcycle.

Grab a coffee (or something stronger) and take 8 minutes to watch this great little short film…

Two wheels good, four wheels bad. It’s a throw-away line that you’ll see plastered to more than a few jackets, helmets and be-stickered gas tanks. And sure, sometimes cars can suck. Especially if they happen to be the immovable object that brings a grinding halt to you and your bike’s unstoppable force. But they aren’t all bad. Take, for instance, one Calum Pryce Tidd of Croydon in the UK. He’s not only the unstoppable force behind deBolex Engineering, but he’s also a guy who got a shot at customising bikes for a living through his day job as a classic car tuner. And what a shot it turned out to be.
