What shits me off is this whole recently arrived at use of the word 'patina-ed' and the building of bikes that someone has spent countless hours 'patina-ing' every surface, every nut and bolt, to give it the perfect faux fucked finish . . . . the 'I been ridin this scoot for twenty five years and parking it in the surf every night' look, the 'I'm a hardcore biker and it's all about the function, I don't give a rat's arse what it looks like' bullshit . . . .
I'm just fucking over it, like I'm over three hundred dollar a pair designer torn jeans and thousand dollar second hand jackets and engineer boots that come with 'how to tell your story' tags . . . . this kinda shit is fake, phony, furball, fuck off, softcock, wannabe, wood duck, dipshit, bullshit at it's most contrived, it's try hard, die soft, scenester queen, less than has been, pretender, truth bender, instant wanker, Ravi bloody Shanker, Paul Jr's offshore banker bollocks !!!!
YOU WANT THE 'WORN IN LOOK' ON SOMETHING SWEETPEA ???? GET THE FUCK OUT THERE AND USE IT . . . . GET A BIKE AND RIDE THE LIVIN SHIT OUTTA IT, PLANT YOUR ARSE IN YOUR CAR AND PUT SOME MILES ON IT . . . . WANT AN OLD BIKE ?? BUY AN OLD BIKE THEN SPEND THE TIME TO ACQUIRE LEGIT OLD PARTS WITH LEGIT OLD PART 'PATINA' AT NO EXTRA COST, IMAGINE THAT ??? HERE'S AN IDEA, BUY A PAIR OF BRAND NEW JEANS AND 'WEAR' THE FUCKERS 'OUT' !!!!
BUT I GUESS A LOT OF FOLK THESE DAYS JUST WANT THE 'LOOK' WITHOUT ALL THE ASSOCIATED BOTHER, THE REWARDS WITHOUT THE WORK, THE SURFACE, NOT THE SUBSTANCE, THE SCENE, NOT THE SOUL . . . . YOU CAN'T BUY IT AND YOU SURE AS SHIT CAN'T GET IT 'PATINA-D' . . . . IT COMES FROM THE HEART AND AIN'T EVER SUBJECT TO THE FICKLE DICTATES OF FASHION.
***** P.R [post rant] I've incuded a nice video to watch . . . . there is no connection to the above diatribe . . . . honestly . . . . trust me, I'm a politician.
