TORONTO (June 18, 2014) – Vintage bike builder Adam Cramer and his motley crew of mechanics are restoring, repairing, and flipping motorcycles in PHILLY THROTTLE, premiering Monday, July 14 at 9 p.m. ET/9 p.m. PT on Discovery World. It’s never a dull moment at Liberty Vintage Cycles in Philadelphia, as Cramer and his crew convert rusted out bikes into true works of art. Pressing deadlines, finicky customers, tight budgets, and new employees all add to the chaos as Cramer navigates the perils of owning a small business in one of the roughest corners of Philadelphia – Fishtown.  

Brotherhood and bikes: Discovery World’s network premiere of PHILLY THROTTLE debuts July 14

Cramer is an artist and an intellect, not a businessman. Juggling the dual roles of owner and artist collide and threaten to sink Liberty Vintage. What keeps him focused is his dedicated group of mechanics. His creations come with a unique history and Cramer celebrates that history in the meticulous detail he puts into his chopper restorations. Before each project, Cramer creates a vision of the perfect bike. However, executing his vision is an ongoing battle against available parts, the clock, and his customer's tight budgets.
