he also has no bids...i don't think anybody is missing anything.quote:
Note the seller has 0 feedback...a newbie that thinks he'll get big money for his bike on ebay. You know...cause it's so RARE.
I have to give it to them though, if it werent for their interests in this old stuff a lot of vintage iron would have gone to the scrapper a long time ago, and a lot of new parts for old bikes would not be made today, so there is a positive.quote:
The bar I work at is in a town that is home to Skidmore college, decent school ( I married one of it's alumni) but $40+k a year to attend...and a breeding ground for the hipsters you mention. Nice kids, they mean well, but awful niave....all into a kind of hip retro thing.
Don't know where they get their ideas but they want old bikes, old cars, say they want to learn to work on them etc. They don't want corporate jobs, and jabber about "big business" and it's evils, but they'll take some ridiculously high paying job in a small trendy business of some sort, never realizing they are part of the world of greed just on a smaller scale. But..like I said, decent well meaning kids....I feel for them when they finally encounter the real world....or a vintage bike.
Latest?..that shit has been goign on since the 60's. It seems to be one of the onyl continious scenes where peoplke get sick of it and leave and there is always someone there to jump in their spot. I was in it, got out, AD dragged me back in, and now I am out again. The New Orleans scene was one of the cooler ones I was a part of just because it was small and had a real appreciation of the past including the mod lifestyle and the mods vs. rockers scooters vs. cafe racers rivalries, although these days they are just for show.quote:
Anybody else getting the lastest Vespa/Lambretta craze? In the past couple of years, the bloody things (and some of their shameless modern clones) are showing up everywhere here in Ohio. They seem to be prized possessions among the emo crowd in particular. Whatever. Least they're riding around on old shit.
Honda go sideways!
