If you are after spares for your classic Honda motorbike, then the world’s No1 stockist of new and remanufactured old Honda parts is in deepest Norfolk. David Silver has been buying new, old-stock Honda bits for years. And even has a line in restoring old Hondas, for customers that include people like Top Gear’s James May.
A commission to shoot Mr Silver for Bike Magazine led me to his dusty warehouses and containers full of loads of spares for loads of Hondas, and his army of workers picking, packing them and posting them around the world. Even back to Japan in many cases!
The challenge was to take a very ordinary-looking warehouse and make it look cool for the lead shot which should include Mr Silver himself. Job done, I think.
