Producer - Gary Partlow
Director - John Carney

John Carney and Gary Partlow got together one day in the mid 70's and decided to make a documentary about Gary building his motorcycle. John at that time was attending the San Francisco Art Institute. Partlow had been riding his HD Sportster for a while and wanted to give his bike a new look. This resulted in a complete tear down and rebuild with a new hand-build frame and fresh motor. This chance meeting was just the beginning of something much bigger. It kick-started a wave of excitement and with the help of his brother, "Late" Lonnie, bike riders all through the West came forward with stories and opinions about motorcycle culture. What they created in the end was the documentary cult film, Black Jackets and Choppers.
