Director and life-long biker Gareth Maxwell Roberts takes us on a fascinating road trip to discover the rarely seen on screen, world of contemporary custom motorcycles and the people who have Oil In The Blood. This new rip-roaring feature documentary takes us on an eye-opening thrill ride and is set to arrive on Blu-ray, DVD and digital.
This little-known scene has experienced a huge renaissance in recent years, and what was once a niche subculture now bears a significant influence on the international mainstream motorcycle industry. We can experience the wonderful world of custom motorcycles as Oil In The Blood is released worldwide on 14th October 2019, courtesy of Revelation Films, who also produced the film.
Over three years, Roberts and producer Lucy Selwood travelled the globe to interview those at the very heart of this captivating culture. From Britain and Europe, to Japan, Australia, The Far East, Africa and the US, they have spoken to hundreds of people from bike builders, riders and journalists to the artists and racers, all who have one thing in common... a passion for custom motorcycles.
The film shows mind-blowing footage including a collaboration between Harley Davidson and maverick bike builders El Solitario in the Sahara, flat track racing in dusty bowls and indoor arenas, ice racing in Wisconsin and the Alps, and the American Wall of Death in the Texas sun.
See stunning custom bikes riding on urban streets, twisting mountain roads, through the rolling green countryside and the scorched flat plains. Watch choppers, café-racers, flattrackers, sprint bikes, electrics, old school specials and urban brats from $100,000 pristine beauties to $500 rippers.
