A Claude Butler 531 Reynolds for sale, make a great commuter or randonneur.
Come and check out our new bike cave at 23 Johnston Street Collingwood (only a few minutes ride from our last place), in the rear down the laneway. We are open everyday from 10.30 to 6.30. We service all bikes and restore and sell beautiful vintage bikes and of course we also build custom bikes for you to suit any need or desire. We truly love our bikes and this is what we are all about. In the next blog there will be pics of our new digs that we are presently building and designing to be a wonderland of bikes and a remarkable workshop. We are just 50 meters down from the intersection of Smith St and Johnston down the laneway next to everyday coffee/99 problems, Magic Johnston creative offices etc. Come in to show your support for our efforts to recycle and offer an alternative to shit Chinese bikes that become landfill after a year, say NO to fake vintage bikes haha, better get of the soapbox we probably need the timber for our new place. Cheers and ride on. Mottainai Spirit!!!!!!!
A full ground up restoration with custom black leather saddle/grips and vanished timber rear seat, some kid had a wonderful Chrissy morning eh?
Come in and chat to our friendly bike loving staff, we have vintage bikes for sale and we can restore your bike or build you a custom vintage bike of your dreams, open every day from 11am to 6.30pm at 50 Rose Street next to the Rose Street Artist artist market in Fitzroy. email@example.com 0448884051 FACEBOOK: Mottainai Cycles, vintage bikes
We are open most days unless the weather is really horrible as we prefer to work outside. As part of the restoration process, all our bikes are completely striped of all parts, the parts are cleaned and replaced (if worn out) and then the bicycle is rebuilt using original and good quality replacement parts. We genuinely love our bikes at Mottainai and therefore want them to be as beautiful and mechanically solid/sound as possible. If we don’t have a restored bike ready in the racks that suits you, we can build you a custom bike that will suit your size and also visual specifications. We really dig custom builds. Come and see us at 41 Kerr St Fitzroy (down the laneway), 0448884051
Mottainai recycled bikes set up a little stall at the Fitzroy Market on the weekend (Sat), the market is held on the first Saturday of each Month. It was a great day, even sunny and the bikes looked pretty cool juxtaposed with all the groovy vintage retro clothes for sale. Some of the other pics capture Melbournites visiting Mottainai bikes and finding a used bike to love. Oh and one pic is just a shot from a fashion shoot, just slipped it in as a filler haha!
Once again any enquiries regarding bikes can be made to this no. (0448884051) or mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheerio and stay warm by riding.
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.
