Vintage Bicycles: Restoration, Sales and Service. Mottainai Cycles November 2014

It’s been a busy month for us at Mottainai Cycles, we’ve had more custom builds and restorations to do than ever before which we’ve been flying through as well as making improvements to the shop and riding our beautiful steel bikes!

If you don’t know already at Mottainai Cycles we restore vintage bicycles and build custom bikes to order from our collection of steel frames. We have a large amount of sizes and styles so come in and check out some of nicest bikes you’ll find in Melbourne – we’re starting to get Xmas orders in already (I know it’s only November!) so if you are after a pre-xmas build then come by soon to avoid disappointment! We also offer affordable and friendly bike services, just bring your bike in to the shop (no need to pre-book) and we’ll give you a quote on the spot – most bikes are next or same day return and courtesy bikes are available for longer jobs.

Now here’s a look at some of our recent builds CLICK ON PICS TO ENLARGE:
