WHAT WE DO
Meet what the cool team members can do for you
How does a mass produced machine made in an assembly line, gain an unique character? How does a machine produced by the millions, used by thousands and thousands of kilometers in hundreds of countries, become a precious jewel? If you don’t know the answer to these questions then Vintage Factor is not for you. Any car can become an iconic object in our minds. In a car you can have a variety of life fulling experiences, from when you were a boy or a girl siting down on your father’s lap while pretending to drive the family car, until the first time that you stopped your car at the park to be with your first love. The years that pass by Classic Cars are unrepeatable, and each owner of a Mercedes, Fiat, Porsche, Opel, Ferrari or VW registered their own fingerprints in different details that later enthusiasts seek. A classic car is an example of how time shapes and perfects something that man has created, whether such influence results in an pristine and indistinguishable state from when it left the assembly line, or if it’s in a rusted and rotting condition that often we find these forgotten jewels.
The words riding or rider define a state of mind. Define a mentality. Define a style and more than that, define a Way of Life and a sub-culture. It is difficult to translate these words into a Portuguese, we don’t have a word that comes close to the concept of Riding or Rider … Just as it is difficult to translate what we do with our costumed bikes. Perhaps the best explanation for what we do is, we enhance the unique characteristics of the bike and we shape its appearance to symbolize more brilliantly the state of mind of it’s Rider.
WHO ARE WE
We are all goodfellas, a little bit crazy but with our feet on the ground. We love everything that has wheels and an engine aged enough to order it’s own whisky and we love vintage junk. The group has an architect, two mechanics and an ex-jornalist, each one with his one point of view but with only one motto “life is too short to drive boring Rides”.
Come and meet us!
I am not designed to come second or third. I am designed to win.
The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.
I have no idols. I admire work, dedication and competence.
Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.
When you are fitted in a racing car and you race to win, second or third place is not enough.
If everything seems under control, you’re not going fast enough.
I learned that life is a long and difficult road, but you have to keep going, or you’ll fall by the wayside.
The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes.
Winning is the most important. Everything is consequence of that.
Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.
You must take the compromise to win, or else nothing. That means: you race or you do not.
Racing is life. Anything before or after is just waiting.
Being second is to be the first of the ones who lose.
