49 Year Ride


49 Year Ride - Generations On The Road - Starring S&J Motorcycles from Clutch Monkey on Vimeo.
This short documentary focuses on the rough and two-wheel-tumble life of local Santa Rosan Steve Leandro and his shop S&J Motorcycles. I was able to uncover some Super 8 footage from 1974 of the 'Run To the Redwoods", which he was a part of, and some 1972 Super 8 footage of the influences in Steve's life to create a film that I believe acknowledges Steve's humble beginings and honors his current impact on future vintage chopper loving generations. Except for the riding shots and old Super 8, this film was shot on the iPhone 4.
