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.
Hi, I am having a vintage bike sale on Sunday the 17th April (tomorrow) from 3pm -6pm. I have a lot of vintage bikes I need to sell, prices start at $150. All the bikes are used and will need a service.
You can contact me on 0448884051 or mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Address is : Highett Place Fitzroy, ( it will be easy to find once on Highett Place).
One thing I have noticed over a couple of years collecting and selling vintage bikes is that the people who are interested in these bikes are all really nice people and a delight to meet and chat with about bikes and life. The above pics and many in this blog are a documentation of these wonderful people and their bikes.
You can contact me on 0448884051 with any questions regarding vintage bicycles etc. Cheers …… from ……… Fitzroy, Melbourne.
Many of these pics were of people purchasing bicycles from Mottainai recycled bikes but also some are of locals who ride cool bikes, such as the green Raleigh Men’s bike and the black BSA etc. Thanks to all those who willingly participate, cheers.
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.
CAUTION!!!Recycling vintage bikes can be addictive , slowing down the unnecessary consumption of the sparkly ‘new’ mass produced is nothing but a positive prospect. Mottainai bikes, Fitzroy 0448884051.
