The Cool Hunting Budnitz Model No. 1 Scorcher. On second glance, it’s actually grey.
The 1986 BMX Classic
Made By Hand’s fifth short film. This one focusing on “bike maker Ezra Caldwell (Fast Boy Cycles), who was diagnosed with cancer in 2008. When the cancer threatens to shatter his love of bikes, Ezra survives by documenting his illness as thoroughly as his craft.”
The team at Playdate Bike Club makes products as aesthetically dope as they are functionally impressive. Founded in 2008, Playdate turns out top-quality, high-performance bicycles with a throwback feel. The unique High-Riders boast cro-moly steel frames, chrome chopper handlebars, a spacer stack design and retro banana seats. Standard and step-through variations on their four basic models are available exclusively through their website. Apparently, further customization of saddles, grips, and cranks is also possible through a scheduled consultation with a bike expert. Playdate bikes start at $650 and ship internationally.
