A tricky identification!
« on: March 25, 2020, 03:25:40 PM »
Hi Everyone,

I'm new here, and I don't know very much of anything about classic motorcycles, but I'm doing sound design on a film that features one and I don't know what it's supposed to sound like  :-[

Can anyone tell me what this is? Or even what sort of engine I should be using for this bike?

You don't get much of a look at all so good luck!

It's a fairly recent Triumph T100 Bonneville and not an 'older' (if that's what you meant?) classic.

Ah brilliant, that was easy! I just needed some sort of reference point so that I knew I was going in the right direction. Thanks so much for your help L.A.B.

Genrally a totallyinappropriate sound is /was used. a rorty 4 stroke when a piddling two stroke is on screen, or vice versa.
It should not be difficult the out the right sound to that bike.

I saw an American low-budget film set in WW2 recently. Same old plot, English rose falls for US bad-boy pilot. They had an argument and she drove off in her little Midget (gravel drive too) and the sound was probably some big Chevy V8 spinning it's wheels on tarmac. :-\

I like the films where the hero flies off in a little Cessna, and the sound track is a Liberator etc (4 engines) on full boost.
Or vice versa....
