    Rented my Spaceliner to a movie set and they used it during filming Monday! A series called "Man in the High Castle". Kinda cool I thought...

    Oh man, that's awesome; Man in the High Castle is good. It was one of Amazon's pilot series where they put up a handful of pilot episodes and people vote for the best ones to get picked up. It's based on a Philip K. Dick novella imagining an alternate timeline where Germany and Japan actually won WWII.. hence "Reich Chronicles".

    That's so damn cool and good for you. I would love to see this show when it airs. My favorite movies or shows are ones that feature old bikes and cars etc. nothing like nostalgia. Rob.

    That is cool. I have loaned a couple bikes for the local theatre and a high school play.
    I didn't rent it though. As it was a community theatre and school.
    Just held a deposit for the value of the bike. Which I returned if there was no damage to the bike.
    Just wondering. ..how much do you rent the bike for?
    Did you draw up a Liability contract?

    It's all about the Tanklights!!

    How did I run out of room so fast?

    I watched the first episode on Amazon Prime last night. Highly recommended if you like historical fiction. It's adapted from a Phillip K. Dick book. Check it out.

    It is from the movie...it is set post war and the idea was that Germany won and since they were quite advanced with everything rocket, they would have progressed with space age type design....

    that is very cool, is there a lot of movies being shot in BC? we used to have many filmed here in Montreal, but the industry pretty much disappeared
    just curious, you don't have to answer if it's too personal
    how much is a rental rate for an antique bicycle?
    I have had requests but never said yes because I didn't know what to charge and if the bike would come back in good shape
    do they sign a contract and get insurance for it

    Yeah but wouldn't it be a good idea, if you're telling a story, about being asked to rent your bike or something, that you actually own one?

    Nick and I will have two of our nicest 50's bikes in a commercial soon, $300 per bike for a 1/2 day's shoot. And no one will ride or touch them....I'll post it when it wraps/airs.

    The show takes place post war. 1962-3 to be exact. I watched the first 2 eps last night. The kid is riding the bike in the first episode, but you cant get a clear view.
