Mottainai Cycles winter edition

Fresh riding season is upon us, the sun has started to grace the roads, time to get that bike sorted out that you have been dreaming of. Bring in your bike that needs restoring or come in and discuss a custom built bike for you or of course if your machine needs a service then swoop on in for a tune up etc. It’s a good time to come in before we become inundated again. Below are some recent pics of bikes that have been restored by us and sold to discerning mottainai customers’ or a few bikes ready for a new home.

Mottainai Cycles is a bicycle workshop, we service and repair all bicycles and specialize in restoring and building vintage steel lugged bikes. We sell restored bikes and love to build custom bikes for you. We are now closed on Tuesdays. We are open Monday, Wed, Thurs and Fridays from 8.30 to 6.00 and open weekends Sat and Sundays from 10.30 to 6.00. Find us at 23 rear Johnston Street Collingwood, down the lane-way and opposite Jim’s Greek Tavern.
