BY MATTHEW ROBERTS

Motorcycle builder and film producer Matthew Roberts (aka Speedtractor) lives, breathes and dreams custom motorcycles from his Tokyo based studio for some of the icons of the industry. In 2016 Roberts and his collaborators, Iceblock Films, decided the world needed its first feature length film exploring Japan's Alternative Custom Moto scene. Now, 10 months of filming, 6200kms and many, many lost races later, as the project enters its final phase, Roberts treats listeners with some behind the scenes glimpses of custom motorcycles as a lifestyle.
