The Legacy of Tjitte Bootsma

I made this video in memory of Tjitte Bootsma who passed away on November 6th 2012. I wanted to show his workshop, probably one of his favourite places in the world.

Tjitte had a workshop/ business where he made frames for Ice racing bikes and did all kind of motorcycle repairs. I made a small video showing this workshop.

Tjitte also collected and restored old motorcycles and we always made jokes about his museum but after visiting it a couple of times during the making of this video I truly can say that it was a museum he had there. So that became part of the video too. I also included a short clip of Tjitte and his friends riding Ice racing bikes on the Ijselmeer as part of a winter training.
