Late Autumn in Melbourne evokes a magical romance, sunset leaves blanketing the damp roads creating a quilt of extraordinary beauty, riding a bike that equates or mirrors such an aesthetic amplifies the experience. Life is too short to ride a shit bicycle! We are passionate about our bikes at Mottainaicycles.com we live to restore and service beautiful bikes, whether they are from Australia, France, England or Japan, we fetish-ize bikes and well crafted parts and like nothing more than building custom bikes or introducing you to one of our bikes already restored. We are the antithesis of the many bike sellers whom sell cheap, poor quality bikes with a vintage look from China (aptly called landfill bikes). We make restore and build bikes for people to love and that will be treasured. You deserve a beautiful bike!!! Come in to our shop down the cobble-stoned laneway at 23 Johnston Street Collingwood. We also service and repair all bikes in our workshop. Just rock up and we can fit you in after a little chat about your bike, we are open from 10.30 till 6.30 soon opening at 8am. catrethowan@yahoo.com  0448884051  facebook: Mottainai Cycles, vintage bikes  Instagram: mottainaicycles   thanks and see yah at the shop.
