An original trendsetter

You don't get much cooler than this...

We're throwing it back in this 2021 news story focussing on a collaboration between Mutt Motorcycles and Gorillaz bassist, Seye Adelekan. If one man knows what it takes to be cool, it's him. Seye has spent the last few years working with some of the biggest names in the industry including Elton John, Slaves, Skepta and Robert Smith to name a few!

Seye had recently ventured into the world of motorcycles and took his CBT, so Mutt Motorcycles got him by the London branch for the lowdown.

Scroll down to find out why Seye got into riding and what he thinks of Mutt Motorcycles...

What made you curious to venture into the world of motorcycles, Seye?

"Well, the freedom of it. They’re obviously just cool machines, but there is something I feel that signifies the free spirit, the way you can just get up and go somewhere. Whereas there's something about a car that feels like a more stifled experience - you’re less in contact with the world around you. There's also something about motorcycles being a more solo experience. You might ride with people, but it's your story, you and the road. That sort of feeling fascinates me. I could definitely see myself on a motorcycle going down the coastline for hours and hours and it not being boring, whereas I feel like if I was in the car I’m more likely to nod off. It feels like a much more active way of getting somewhere.”

And what do you think about Mutt Motorcycles?

“They’re super cool. I think they’re great, they are somehow classic and somehow modern and I'm not entirely sure how that's happened, but obviously, lots of really, really good people have worked hard to do that. They just look like really well-made, wonderfully crafted machines. It's the same with music. There's kind of nothing worse than someone just doing a ‘60s record, for example, but I don’t think there is necessarily anything great in someone just nodding or being reverent to what's been before. My favourite stuff is often where there is something classic and timeless, but it's referencing that; made today, clearly of now and not just nostalgic, not just futuristic.”

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
