Beautiful bike documented today on Smith St Fitzroy, vintage bicycle.

I strongly believe that there is great value in finding and recycling old, used vintage bikes and giving them a new lease on life. Usually, these bikes were made using high quality materials and components, often being made in Japan (70’s-80’s) and they stand the tests of time compared to the new (retro) copies that are made in China that have a very short shelf life. I would recommend an original vintage over one of these reproductions every time. Also the process of restoring the bike is a labour of love and respect for both the bike and the rider, we all enjoy seeing the aesthetic delights of old things be it architecture or nick-nacks and delight in the depth of history that these objects embody. There is a timeless quality to vintage bikes that is gaining worldwide appeal.
