Biking is living …

The archives of Motorcycle Enthusiasts could not keep up with how fast the world in the digital rhythm has developed. Little has been digitized so far. Neither the technology nor the stories about people who had to do with the machines. British Customs, a lifestyle design brand of motorcycle spare part,s www.british-customs.com/, now tells in the blog on his Web page about the machines, men and women who have become legends. Also there´s a lot to read about the „father of the motorcycle lifestyle: Steve McQueen“. For example, when McQueen saw bikers for the very first time,  riding their bikes in the off-road mode over the Hollywood Hills. It looked for him after so much fun, that he showed up at the store of Bud Ekins, to buy himself a machine. This resulted in a lifelong friendship. Together, the two travelled to Germany for the filming of „The great escape“ (the great escape) in 1962. The stunt, Ekins featured in the film for McQueen,

was the launch of his indescribable Stuntman career. „Racing is life. Just wait for everything that’s happened before or after“. Is one of the quotes from McQueen.
