Reversed Paintjob #1
During my latest trip to Mexico, shuttling some pretty rough roads wore down my relatively fresh-looking bike, and I was considering giving up on my strenuous efforts to keep my bike nice and neat. At this point, I had two options: First, ignoring the fact that my bike gets beaten up by my adventures, or second, finding a long-term solution to get me out of this recurring situation. There must be a threshold of wornness I believed I had to pass that my bike would develop a new but unique look based on its battle scars. At this point, Karma really got me considering scratching my frame on purpose for the better good. But at least it‘s more authentic to the deal to destress the current paint job instead of just covering it up with a new one. This idea had a tiny but essential clue; new scratches would add to the bike‘s existing look and let the look further develop during my future adventures.
