Ruff Cycles is about cruiser eBikes and bicycles, conveying a specific and free riding experience. We believe that we are more than an ordinary brand, our connection to the products is extraordinary.
With this series of emailings, we want to highlight our riders and their bikes, as well as the inspiration behind their designs to the whole community.
WHAT WAS YOUR INSPIRATION REGARDING THE DESIGN AND THE COLORS?
I was in doubt between a Porucho and a Tango. But because I saw a lot of Porucho’s lately so i decided to build me a Tango. Before I started to build this bike, I looked for parts and started to think about the paint.
I have the same patterns painted on the wheels and the tank plate. Most parts are made, ore have been modified by me, like the suicide shifter, tank plate and the lights.
By now I also own a Porucho and a Gringo.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU RIDE YOUR BIKE?
Because I own several bikes, I don’t ride it as often as I want, and I have to admit that I like the building more than the riding. After I rode it for a while I feel like rebuilding it.
NOW A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF
I always have been busy on painting things (graffiti), and after I painted my first bike, I started to modify it. After that I started building bikes. I am an engineer for profession and the painting and building bikes is pure hobby.
