Matt’s fly ride

You know those days when you wake up and in between gulping down your coffee/lemon water/smoothie and slinging a scarf/bag/tie on jogging out the door you think to yourself, “I could really do with something new”?

Namely, a bicycle.

Well, we aren’t really sure what the thought process was behind Matt’s decision to get a new bike but after pricing around he decided that it seemed like a better idea, all round, to completely overhaul his existing one.  To strip off it’s old personality entirely.  Thorough service, new wheels, tyres, grips and a fresh coat of paint.  He wanted it to be so different that one would be forgiven for mistaking it for something else.  Another type of machine.

Namely, a plane.

So we batted a few ideas around finally deciding on this.

Behold: Santa Cruz turned Mustang




The Flippy was a restoration project brought to us by Brendan Snyman to preserve the memory of his brother who passed away from Cancer at a young age.  They both had the same bikes and when his gran moved recently they found his brother’s bike and Brendan thought he must do something with it in remembrance.

The cuteness runs deep with this one…
