Gentlemen are always given different images and definitions. They can be workaholics, life activists, or even old urchins. No matter which image they have, they have a rigorous work attitude. They are full of fun in life and have rich insights and Seniority, but without losing the heart of young fun. And now there are such ‘gentleman knights’ who wear monocles with monocles, well-groomed beards, silk vests, washed shirts, and tailors’ tailor-made suits. They are gathered in retro motorcycles. Chatting and cycling together created another new cultural trend-the retro gentleman knight culture. The knights took courage as their blade, wisdom as their sheath, and stepped on the retro motorcycles that were cool enough to perfectly interpret the spirit of the coffee knight. What’s more significant is that gentleman riding is not only a riding, but also a charity event aimed at paying attention to men’s health, raising funds for prostate cancer treatment research, and letting the cycling crown spread and pass on in the name of ‘goodness.’
Beijing and Shanghai twin cities, two styles interpret the chivalry of retro gentlemen
Born in the 1950s on London Street, the coffee knight, developed subcultures including the pursuit of speed, a love of rock music, and a blood-like passion for motorcycles. They are loyal to challenge, they can cross the summit, through the jungle, or across the desert to explore the unknown life. Dare to break the framework of stereotypes, do not follow the secular vision, pursue excellence, do not fall into the limelight, and enjoy the thrill of sprinting and conquering.
The cycling tour of Gentlemen in Two Cities is on the rise. Beijing is issued by ACE Cafe, a sacred place for motorcycle culture. (Destination is undecided.) Shanghai is issued by Linjiang Road from the 1933 old factory building of Fashion Creative Design Center. Two cities with the most Chinese characteristics, two different styles interpret the culture of retro motorcycles. In the roar of the engine, the locomotive riding team accelerated the throttle, leaving the dust, and released the free heart in the gallop, feeling the thrill of freedom.
The handsome figures of the ‘Coffee Knights’ who had been in Ace Café and the swashbuckling faces in the gallop seemed to remain in the minds of every gentleman and knight, deeply affecting this group of people, and generation after generation of young people No matter it is Beijing in the compound of Hutong culture in the courtyard or Shanghai in the quiet but mixed with the lively alleys, the heart and dream of chasing wind and chasing speed are passed on from generation to generation.

The light olive-gray dial with grainy decorative pattern supports two chronograph dials, and the arched sapphire crystal glass covers it, and the faceted hands and numbers with beige luminous coating are clearly visible on the dial. The pure titanium case back, which is water-resistant to 100 meters, is engraved with the words ‘Café Racer Spirit’, like a medal of honor.
