Bisikleta Productions was the brain child of G.I. & the Idiots, Private Stock and Put3ska drummer - Luis "Weslu" Guiang in the late year of 2006. He along with young like minded individuals from his hometown Malabon City and a friend from Kalookan city who is now a Pasigueno started toying with the idea of putting out an outfit that will cater to certain individuals that are into PUNK ROCK, ROCKABILLY, MOD and SKA music and everything else in between.
He named it after the two wheeled vehicle that use to deliver hot fresh bread honking in the early morning before that damn rooster wakes you up from your deep slumber. The name is a metaphor for the punk rock ethos of D.I.Y. A vehicle that in order for it to move you must first exert considerable amounts of energy to make it mobile.
Ironically he is a bicycle riding health buff that one day his bike was stolen from his home! and at the same time while he was contemplating and searching for the right name for his outfit a friend of his gave him a DVD of ROCKERS in which the lead character of the movie was a drummer that sells dub plates and his mode of transportation was a motorbike and that was stolen from him. The movie had a huge impact on him because the character in that flick somewhat resembles his ideas for what is now known as BISIKLETA PRODUCTIONS
