If you love beautiful bikes then you will adore our shop. We have created an oasis of aesthetic velo delights. We believe a bike should be an equal balance of form and function. We delight in being able to build our creations and to collaborate with our customers building custom bikes. Below are pictures of customers picking up their new rides.
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 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.
More fantastic people coming to visit Mottainai recycle bikes in Fitzroy and discovering their retro-rig or does it happen the other way? Also included are a couple of happy snaps taken around inner city Melbourne, locals getting around on their bikes.
So many great bikes are rolling again, it’s fantastic to see all the vintage bikes back in use and looking so damn cool. The concept of the ‘slow rider’ on a vintage bicycle is an interesting one if we compare that genre to the lycra racer style, it’s just cool to see different bike cultures and watch them develop and become part of our visual social fabric.
