Hi all,

We are currently shooting a TV Series here in Melbourne and we have a scene coming up that is supposed to be in Northern Russia.  The director has asked me if they could have a motorbike sitting out the front their 'gulag' set. If any of the member have a great old bike in the shed that they would be happy dusting off for 15 minutes of fame - would love to hear from them. We are shooting in Melbourne next Monday or Tues 15/12.

Also, for future reference I work as a Vehicles Supervisor for Film and TV here in Australia and and are always looking for unique cars, trucks and bikes. If any members are interested in having them used in film and TV pls send me a message or pass this onto your friends.

Thanks, Max

"If any of the member have a great old bike in the shed that they would be happy dusting off for 15 minutes of fame" -  typical TV creep. You provide your vehicle for nothing so that I can make thousands. Won't happen Max. Twenty years ago a Japanese instant noodle company did a series of really weird ads in Queensland - we got paid  A$1,000 per day for the outfits, plus petrol money, hotels, food etc. Not costing us for "15 minutes of fame". Try ripping someone else off, Max! If you had any integrity, you would have offered money up-front!

Without saying who you are or how to contact you (since you haven't visited this forum since the 9th December), It's a bit difficult to volunteer our services.

Hi Max, have this Dnepr which has not yet been converted for Australian roads, so the side car is on the correct side for authenticity's sake. Bike runs well and can be ridden about. Bike is located in Newcastle NSW.
