July 29th Mottainai Vintage Cycles Melbourne, Australia.

We had a pop up shop in Melbourne Central for a week, some of the above pics were of some of the lovely people we met through that experience. Some of the other pictures are of locals around Fitzroy/Collingwood with their old groovy bikes. We also have a new shed in Fitzroy where we can show you’all some sweet vintage bicycles.

Vintage bikes Melbourne, some romantic snaps of seekers finding their trusty wheelie friends at Mottainai Cycles, Fitzroy.

Some of the shots also depict random cyclists around Fitzroy getting their ‘vintage cool on’. And you can’t stop me sneaking in the occasional dog piccy, these are some of the dogs we take care of and we love them to pieces. Ahhhhhhh vintage bikes and dogs ……. It’s the simple things:)

Mottainai Cycles will be at Melbourne Central Level 1 from Wednesday 20th-31st July for the State of Design Festival, come and check out some of our bikes. Cheers

Mottainai recycled vintage bikes, Autumn riders basking in the glowing embers of Summer’s ease.

We have a collection of piccies from people finding their wondrous rolling wheels at Mottainai bikes in Fitzroy and also just some spontaneous pics taken of riders around Brunswick St in Fitzroy and Smith St in Collingwood, Melbourne. Also in many of the pics taken over the last year or so I have been taken by the seemingly natural juxtaposition between vintage bikes and dogs.
