TBH, building up "scene" bikes primarily for posting on here is rubbish.
Ride bikes that make you happy.
Whats a "SCENE" bike....?
Every bike should Inspire you to ride...!
Every bike should be a Journey of Exploration whether the build or the ride or both together...!
To build a bike to post on here, and nothing else is financial suicide surely....?
I am aware people build for BOTM, and then sell or brake and sell.
That's a sad day too....
(unless the build is purely therapeutic and for and health related reasons and the member cant fully enjoy the ride and yet still wants to contribute his knowledge and experience to the website.
I am glad to say I only know of one genuine case of this and I fully support the member..
Im sure every member has his or her reason for building and I suspect for sum there is a bigger picture too.
I know of one member who now has his bike collection on public display(and all the same brand), what a "scene" that is. More of a speechless Spectacle to be fair.
Each Hobby has it pockets of following, whether it be "YETI, KLEIN, FAT CHANCE etc etc etc".
is this what you mean by "SCENE" bikes.....?
Surely these examples are nothing more than branches of the RETROBIKE tree.
A "SCENE" in itself....
