    "We are excited about the Time Bandit Classic because it is based on an
old 1941 design. Features include an 84 cubic inch new Knucklehead motor,
updated mechanical brakes, 5 gallon gas tanks, black powder-coated Springer
forks and handlebars, 12 volt generator with auto-advance distributor, foot
shift and, in keeping with tradition, a kick start," explains Sorriento. "We
are also pleased to announce the Time Traveler Deluxe based on a 1965 Classic
where its features include an 88 cubic inch new Panhead motor, 5 speed
transmission, disc brakes, chain rear drive, electric start, kick start, and 5
gallon gas tanks," Sorriento adds.
    The Old School Motorcycle Company was established in 2004 by Sorriento,
after pondering the idea for several years. As a motorcycle enthusiast and
custom builder, he had always felt that there was an appreciation and respect
for the classics. Sorriento explains that each motorcycle he builds has its
own character and back story, which ultimately adds to the nostalgic feel of
the era.  In fact, even the company's motto is "recreating American icons with
today's technology."
    Sorriento says, "The attention these motorcycles create is amazing."
Sorriento tells the story of a grandmother who recalled the day her future
husband rode up to her house on a 1947 Knucklehead to pick her up for their
first date.  They were supposed to have dinner then go dancing, however those
plans fell through and they rode around on that motorcycle all evening.
    Also available is a custom clothing line the company has developed.
Everything is designed and made in Vancouver.  Sorriento works closely with
the local clothing companies to make sure that quality in the clothing line is
top notch.  He reveals that he is involved in every aspect of his company from
clothes to photo shoots.
