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.
