Vintage Restorations, Custom Builds, Service, Repair and Hire – Mottainai Cycles December 2014

November has been another busy month for us here at Mottainai – we’ve been relentlessly restoring really rad rides! Here’s a few pics of some recent builds and a couple of detail shots of one of our classiest custom builds yet CLICK ON PIC TO ENLARGE:

This Nishiki Repco Superlight with Tange ∞ tubing is another of our single speed conversions – making it even more superlight than before! Really rad bare metal look, too.

Here at Mottainai Cycles we love restoring and building beautiful hand-built steel bikes. We are the antithesis to the shops that sell mass-produced ‘landfill’ bikes for profit alone – we do it for the love! Come check us out at 23 Johnston Street Collingwood (down the laneway next to Studio 52) where we have a collection of some of the coolest bikes in Melbourne! Don’t forget we also service and repair any bike with a same or next day turnaround as well as hiring classy vintage bikes at a competitive price.

Sunday Vintage rides are still continuing, meeting at 9am (to leave at 9.30) at the shop for a casual (no drop) ride to enjoy the thrill of riding vintage roadies. Please RSVP to mottainaivintagebikes at gmail dot com so we can get an idea of numbers for each week.

    Hi. I’m after some vintage 700c single speed wheelset for my 70’s super elliott. Do you know of any?
