Adam Craver

Handmade Portraits: Liberty Vintage Motorcycles from Etsy on Vimeo.

Adam Craver is an old school dude with a motorcycle shop in Philadelphia. This is an inspiring video of him talking about his bikes, his independent shop, the appeal of vintage stuff, the fulfillment you get from working with your hands, and his concern that America is heading away from these things.

This guy oozes true non-contrived east-coast personality and emotion. Four minutes twenty seconds, well worth it.
