Every story has a beginning.

Before the bike,

there was the car.

“Let’s set the record str8 once again.

A scraper is an old or new school, primarily Buick or Oldsmobile.

That is a scraper by itself.

Now since riding scrapers like they are a luxury cay originated in The Town, Oakland, CA USA,

we stunt our scrapers with 22’s dvds candy paint, etc.

And for the record, we don’t ride whistle tips no more…

so stop saying that ancient stuff.

We ride suction tips that make a totally different sound. Str8 up!”

Now a bit of trivia.

Which rapper first introduced the term “Scraper” to the masses??

E-40, Keak Da Sneak or Mr. F.A.B.??

Candy Paint for the winner!!!!




Str8 up!
