Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Dwindling resources have made the great American pastime of cruising around aimlessly in a big gas-guzzling car a serious faux pas. What if there was a better way to flaunt your one-of-a-kind ride and save the planet at the same time? Well, showboat, fix yourself up one of these two-wheeled stunners. They’re called Priti Baiks, and Panamanian photographer José Castrellon documented the vibrant subculture in his home country. “Priti” in this context has a dual meaning; obviously, it relates to beauty, but the locals’ definition is closer to “ingenious and striking grace.” Finally, some over-the-top ornamentation that we can all get behind.
