Saturday 24th of December at Rose Street Market Fitzroy.

It’s our last day open for 2011, come and join us at the Market 60 Rose St or 41 Kerr St Fitzroy both paths will lead to Mottainai Cycles lol! We have a super collection at the moment as I decided to sell all the bikes I built up for hire. We will be open from 10am until 5.30pm, so check out the market and then swing by our shed and have a chat with us, even Tall Glen will make an appearance. Ok, that’s it for us, I’ve had a great year discovering some beautiful bikes and meeting some really nice people, thank you. Cheers C

Get your bum on a vintage set of wheels………..

Ok, these are a selection of pics taken over the past year of customers and their new/recycled bikes, these were the most clicked on pics on my blog and are in no particular order. Since starting this blog over 60,000 people have checked out Mottainai vintage bikes, wow eh? Thanks for all the support of friends of Mottainai Vintage Bicycles over the past year, without your passion I wouldn’t be doing this. Big Cheers. C

An interesting short film from the 60’s showing some cool vintage bicycles and it was used as a safety message for kids …… not sure it would be used these days lol!!! Enjoy.

Feeling the love for vintage bikes ……

A bunch of vintage discoveries at Mottainai vintage bicycles, the above piccies document some of our bikes that have left the nest this week. We have a great selection of vintage bikes at the moment and we are only open until Christmas so you had better pop over pretty quick before we close for several weeks over Dec/Jan. Same location at 41 Kerr St down the little lane off Kerr in Fitzroy Melbourne. We do everything from selling vintage bikes to servicing any bikes and we also do custom builds, including wheels etc,  we also have some very cool old parts to compliment your steed. Ok, cheers for now.  Ph: 0448884051

Rolling through Summer days, vintage chic at Mottainai recycled cycles.

At Mottainai bikes we restore neglected vintage bikes, two of the above pics demostrate a before and after wheel rim, one all rusty and the next pic all shiny and ready to lace up to another hub. We use lemon juice firstly and then metal polish to make the metal sparkle. In the other pics we have some proud new owners and their new rides and also a pic of a lovely Lady we met on Smith St and her beloved Gazelle (Dutchie). If your a vintage bicycle lover you are welcome to pop in to our shed at 41 Kerr St Mon-Fri and also on Sundays together with the Rose Street Artist Market. You can contact me via text or call on 0448884051.

Oh, don’t forget ‘tiny Glen, the gentle mechanic’, services all kinds of bikes Mon=Fri.

Warm regards.
