Re Built

La Petite Méca est un atelier de custom moto qui se trouve au coeur de Paris, dans une rue souvent ensoleillée entre Bastille et République, juste à côté du magasin de fixed gear Cyclope. Pendant quelques mois, c’est autour d’une vieille Harley que vont s’affairer Bige, mécano solitaire de son état, et Louis-David, photographe, auteur de ce documentaire et peintre à ses heures. D’abord désossé, l’engin va subir une transformation radicale à laquelle on assiste ici, étape par étape. En guise de touche finale, le réservoir sera repeint selon la technique du métal flake.
Le résultat : un ton sur ton noir mat / brillant avec une touche bleue shiny, une bécane unique avec une sacrée gueule.
Ces images sont le fruit d’un travail de longue haleine et marquent la rencontre de deux amoureux de la culture custom.

La Petite Méca is a custom motorcycle shop located in the heart of Paris, in a sunny street between Bastille and République, next to the fixed gear Cyclope strore. For a few months, Bige, lonely mechanic, and Louis-David, photographer, and author of this documentary will work around a 15 year old Harley Davidson. The craft will undergo a radical transformation that is taking place here, step by step. As a final touch, the tank will be repainted using the metal flake technique.
The result is a tonal matte / shiny black with a sparkly blue button, a single bike with a wild look.
These images are the result of a long process and mark the meeting of two lovers of custom culture.

“Johnny cash was a bad mother fucker” – Snoop Doggy Dog

And I heard, as it were, the noise of thunder: One of the four beasts saying: “Come and see.” And I saw. And behold, a white horse.
There’s a man goin’ ’round takin’ names. An’ he decides who to free and who to blame. Everybody won’t be treated all the same. There’ll be a golden ladder reaching down. When the man comes around.

The hairs on your arm will stand up. At the terror in each sip and in each sup. For you partake of that last offered cup, Or disappear into the potter’s ground. When the man comes around.

Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers. One hundred million angels singin’. Multitudes are marching to the big kettle drum. Voices callin’, voices cryin’. Some are born an’ some are dyin’. It’s Alpha’s and Omega’s Kingdom come.

And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree. The virgins are all trimming their wicks. The whirlwind is in the thorn tree. It’s hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

Till Armageddon, no Shalam, no Shalom. Then the father hen will call his chickens home. The wise men will bow down before the throne. And at his feet they’ll cast their golden crown. When the man comes around.

Whoever is unjust, let him be unjust still. Whoever is righteous, let him be righteous still. Whoever is filthy, let him be filthy still. Listen to the words long written down, When the man comes around.

Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers. One hundred million angels singin’. Multitudes are marchin’ to the big kettle drum. Voices callin’, voices cryin’. Some are born an’ some are dyin’. It’s Alpha’s and Omega’s Kingdom come.

And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree. The virgins are all trimming their wicks. The whirlwind is in the thorn tree. It’s hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

In measured hundredweight and penny pound. When the man comes around.

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts, And I looked and behold: a pale horse. And his name, that sat on him, was Death. And Hell followed with him.

MAD BROS MUSIC VIDEOS

HOLLY MOLLY !

I’ve just come across this video, INCREDIBLE !!! these little bikes have semi fixed hubs…. they can pedal backwards but still have free wheel … isnt that impressive ? And the bikes themselves have a weird shape; small wheels, track drop outs, track shape, but BMX fork. Impressive. Reminded me of my friend Jojo’ s bike :

He was playing polo with that bike. Now all we need to do is get those HUBS and use them on the court !!!!!!

A quick article about the video “fixedgearlondon in Paris” :

Last year a group of 10 fixed gear riders from London planned a trip to Paris, to discover what the scene was around here.
For 3 days, we rode east to west and north to south everywhere in Paris… It was really cool to hang out all together, and get these guys to meet the “locals”.
I remember it was a cold and humid month, and it seems like it was such a long time ago, because so many things have happened since. To me it seemed obvious that this improvised trip needed to be on tape, so I grabbed my scooter and went for some filming… The outcome wasn’t meant to be a really fast and dangerous looking video; the purpose was to show people that riders actually started to travel with their bikes, the only purpose beeing “RIDING”.

Luis Davis

Luis hails from Paris, he’s a cycle polo pro, fixed gear fanatic and a ’spare time’ videographer. We had him fire in some words about the video above, like he mentions in his words and the same reason we dug it – it’s just dudes riding.

Cheers for the narrative Luis, stoked to have you on board this coming year as a product tester, look forward to many more shorts and the stories behind them – stoked!
