Bringing you the world's best café racers, bobbers and custom motorcycles

Blitz Motorcycles

Posted on January 17th, by Scott in Video. 3 comments

Hugo and Fred from Blitz Motorcycles have been sending us their bikes for years now. The funny thing is, we didn’t really know much about them. We obviously knew they were French. We knew they were building some unconventional looking bikes out of a small garage in Paris. We also knew they loved leaving the rust, dents and original paint on the vintage tanks they use. But we didn’t know much else. It’s great to hear their story and the sacrifices they have been through to fulfil their dream of building motorcycles for a living. It’s also great to see Hugo rocking a Sydney Café Racers trucker cap – the French being know for their impeccable taste in fashion.

    Rather than use your prodigious energy hating upon these Funky Frenchies, why not go embrace whatever it is you do dig? Might want to remember a few of the buddhist precepts of Thich Nhat Hanh:

    The Second Precept: Do not think that the knowledge you presently possess is changeless, absolute truth.

    The Sixth Precept: Do not maintain anger or hatred. (This is a hard one; I prefer to think of my anger as “righteous indignation,” but I also work at eliminating that anger, too.)

    The Eighth Precept: Do not utter words that can create discord and cause the community to break.

    The Ninth Precept: Do not say untruthful things for the sake of personal interest or to impress people.

    The world is full of genuine bad guys- find a real problem and go be the conquering hero!

    So it is officially okay to like this one? Thanks. Also, my mom is from Paris and my American dad liberated it in WW2, so also thank you for telling all about what is natural and historical.
