so with everything that I do in life, I swear even though it may be fun for y’all… no matter what I do, at the end of the day it always ends up being some sort of blog entry; which means there’s always work on my mind. a network here. something cool I like that can open another door or connect a dot here, there…. everywhere.
so yesterday I’ve been meaning to check out a mutual friends shop that seriously creates works of art with scooters. mostly Honda Ruckus’s…. and they do more than just a GY6 or other shit. they really shit on what american chopper does for these scooters… want a big motor? done. stretch out the scooter 6-10″ ? done! throw on all kinds of crazy lights or gadgets? done! exhaust? done! nitrous or turbo? FUCKING DONE!
so I was actually supposed to check them out before the year ended and damn, 6 or 7 months later I finally checked them out yesterday. they’re all the way in south El Monte and they’re a straight up homey owned fam type business…. shit you would see in a movie and I swear I loved the moment I walked into their shop. all kinds of custom ruckus’s everywhere….. and this shit is a growing craze!
I think I found the bike I want and pretty much wrapped up the deal, but I think my wife is not happy about it lol… hey, I’m off the motorcycles now and that’s a good thing because I was a damn fool, actually a hooligan for many years on them bikes…. now I’m just an old man, or old boy.
some of these ruckus’s can get up to 85mph, but the one I’m copping is like more in the 60mph range. but the shit is soooo dope. the look, the feel, just fun and fuck it. they’re expensive, but worth it in my opinion
they’re called Standard Functions
their twitter handle is: @STDFNCTNS
their instagram is @StandardFunctions
much love to Ming and the crew and shout out to my boys Mark Fatlace and Yogi for introducing me to a whole new world of some shit!!! damn a new hobby maybe???
and oh yeh, NOBODY IS FUCKING WITH THESE GUYS IN THE U.S.A.! HIT THEM UP IF YOU WANT A CUSTOM SCOOTER BUILT! they do what I do to jewelry to scooters!
while I was driving on my way back home, guess what I saw?
back to making shit cold!
