Meet up with the performer behind the unique FP helmet and bike gas-tank created for our newest design tale, Corduroy Daze.
There s simply anything about a bike along with a woman. Awesome, difficult, sexy, beautiful tough as-nails. It usually tells me of 1 of my personal favorite Neil Young tunes, “Unfamiliar Tale”:
Someplace on the leave freeway
She trips a Harley Davidson
Her long blonde hair
flyin’ within the breeze
She’s been runnin’ half her existence
The opera and metal she trips
the atmosphere she breathes
The atmosphere she breathes.
It gets each time to me. Denim Daze, for the latest design tale, we obtained the aid of our friend Babin, an artisan located Florida, in Red County. Going back five decades, he’s been custom-artwork bike gasoline tanks, focusing on producing each bicycle experience unique and legitimately individual towards the fortunate operator.
