Elegant Chrome Bicycles

This Vintage Bicycle Features Traditional Japanese Art

— September 3, 2017 — Lifestyle
This vintage bicycle can add a touch of elegance to your daily commute with its intricately detailed pearl-white body.

Made by Javier Jubet, an artist who does work from a Spanish vintage luxury brand, this bespoke ride is any cyclist's dream. The designer behind this vehicle specializes in chrome-engraved bicycles which feature traditional Japanese art, putting a twist on the classic form of the two-wheeled ride. The bicycle's spokes are covered by a white surface, allowing the interior of the wheel to serve as a canvas for the artist's complex motifs. Upon closer examination, one can see the designs continued on the bike's frame, onto the chain.

Both tough and elegant, the vintage bicycle would appeal to collectors and avid riders alike, serving as an incredibly smooth ride, while maintaining a rare exterior that pays extreme attention to detail.
