Looks like the bizarre Melbourne weather fluctuations have stabilized somewhat, enough to allow even fair weather cyclists a go. Anyways more about us, we are having a bit of a clearance sale of restored vintage bikes as we have to move soonishly, don’t worry though, we are looking at a few options very close to our current abode in Fitzroy. However it’s always good to try and clear a little stock before a move as to allow space for some cool new bikes. Mottainai Cycles for those that have not visited us is a bike shop that specializes in restoring very good quality vintage bikes, we sell bikes, we build custom bikes and we also restore your bikes as well as servicing all bikes even on occasions a moped or a vintage lawn mower etc, haha I’m sure you get the picture, we love good quality vintage bikes and stuff, we denounce Chinese made bicycles produced only for profit as we all love bikes and cycling at Mottainai and feel cheap mass produced Chinese bikes add no value to the wonderful experience of cycling. We are open everyday from 10.30 to 6.30pm at 50 Rose Street or 41 Kerr St (same building). Come in and check out our beautiful bikes or bring in your beautiful bikes for a spruce-up. Cheers and safe riding. Click on any pic for more detail!!!

Older bikes are often pretty amazing, hand made or made from high quality materials etc, especially compared to the bikes being pumped out of the factories of China (which have repeatedly being shown to have horrendous working conditions).
We at Mottainai attempt to find as many of these great pre-loved bikes as possible and resurrect them through full restorations, whilst trying to keep them as original as we can. We are intoxicated with the aesthetic and quality/performance of our bikes and feel a responsibility to bring them back to life in a way that holds an integrity and respect for the origins of the bicycle. Most people seem addicted to the concept of the new, however if new means inferior materials and workmanship then why are people buying these products. Furthermore why are so many throwing out bikes that are often far better than those offered in many shops or online.
A good quality bike should last more than a lifetime and can be a beautiful object to pass on to others. We believe that bicycles should not be created just to make profits using the cheapest methods and materials possible but instead created with the knowledge and attitude that riding a bike is one of the wonderful joys in life.
