what maybe you don't see because you are across the pond, is the "cafe racers" here who put a 59 on their bikes because it is some "cultural icon" a good portion of them have no idea about father bill or the 59 club - it is just something that assures cafe status...quote:Originally posted by cafetbird
OK - OK -- You guys are a freakin' riot in here. Coming to this place more often is gonna save me lots of money on beer.
As for the "hipster douchebag poseur "I'm a marginalized outsider, too" posturing, and a cheap attempt retro-chic marketing/money grab nonsense"... (good description, BTW)
I like to ride and wrench bikes. The folks I ride with like to ride and wrench bikes. We like to meet and ride with anyone else that rides and wrenches bikes. Doesn't matter what kind of bike, no Village People costume required. We are inviting folks of a similar ilk to come on out, meet up, and ride (possibly wrench) bikes.
To me, that is what the 59 Club always was, and still is today. If you can get over your bad self long enough, come on out. Hope to see you there.
