We’ve sourced second-hand, upright bicycles directly from Japan to recycle and get them onto New Zealand roads, just as Kiwis have been doing with used cars for the past few decades. Our bicycles have been carefully rebuilt, and, with sturdy steel frames and simple no-nonsense components, chances are they’ll outlast most cars on the road.
Not only are our Mamacharis practical and environmentally friendly transport alternatives, we also think they’re things of beauty. We’re well aware that not everyone aspires to the lycra-clad image – embrace your right to cycle in style! Our bicycles are not sports-machines but rather a chic way of getting about your daily life, suit, skirt, heels and all.
Give one of our upright bicycles a spin and enjoy the care-free comfort of cycling Mamachari-style.
We also love restoring utility and vintage bicycles. So if you already have such a bicycle hiding away in a shed (or at Grandma’s) but think it needs some tender loving care, you can bring it in to our workshop to be restored.
More beautiful bikes on the road, more often!
