Mottainai Cycles Vintage Bicycle Clearance Sale!

Mottainai Cycles has been in its new location (23 Johnston Street Collingwood down the laneway at the rear) for a while now and we’re getting very settled in. Breaking news: Mottainai Cycles is closed to the public on Tuesdays starting this week (Melbourne cup) This week we’ve been doing some spring cleaning (and further shop construction) and this weekend we’re finishing the cleaning off with a clearance sale. We’ll be selling bikes from $50 and frames from $25 so come by and grab a bargain and check out our new and improved shop space. The sale will be from 10.30 on Johnston Street just near the end of our laneway.

Aside from our spring cleaning the usual wheels are turning with classy restorations and cool customs galore coming through our doors, here’s a little selection to whet your appetite and there’ll be more to follow soon!
