VINTAGE INDIAN RACE BIKE- PHOTOSHOOT
Shot this amazing Indian Race Bike recently for a client and what an absolutely stunning machine it is.
The bikes owner Tim contacted me about a shoot for two for his bikes. This is just one of his many bikes and is going to received a bit of a restoration later this year as it wears the scars of race track battles. I love the well used look of this bike and absolutely thrilled with how the images from this photoshoot turned out. We started this photoshoot in the late afternoon using a mix of the beautiful golden hour sun and off camera flash to create some punchy images. Once the sun set we retreated to a local workshop to create the dramatic red smoke shot.
What blows my mind about this bike and rider is that it laps Broadford circuit faster than a lot of modern Sportsbike riders would. Not only is the throttle on the left hand side of the handlebar but the bike runs a Girder fork front en, this thing must be one hell of a hairy ride. Hats off to the legends that race these things at the speed they do. This particular bike is owned and race by Tim from Classic Wheels & Spokes, Otway Hydroblasting & Metal Works
They specialise in building classic Sidecars and work on all kinds of classic bikes.
Tim and Michelle also brought along their Norton Sidecar which i shot, keep your eyes on my blog as ill be dropping those photos in the next few days.
