Time Out Melbourne

Here are four sweet places to pimp the crap out of your two-wheeler...

Spray Ya Bike

If you’re looking to make that environmentally friendly commute a fashion statement, Spray Ya Bike is the place to go to completely personalise, customise and awesome-onise your bike frame. Founded by Dutch bike enthusiast Johan Willems, he’ll treat your ride with absolute love and care, sanding each frame by hand to ensure you turn heads wherever you ride. Choose from colour-shifting paint, metallics, chrome, candy colours and even goddamn glow in the dark. Point Cook.

Mottainai

For those of you who like things a bit more old school, look no further than Mottainai. Located in Fitzroy, Emile and the guys are all about restoring, rebuilding and customising bikes that have clocked up the clicks. The friendly staff here shares your passion of everything retro and are dedicated to making your beloved two wheeler look its absolute best. With full servicing and restoration on offer. Fitzroy.

Mojo Bike

This place (pictured) has to be any serious bike pimper’s wet dream. You literally design your perfect bike from the ground up, making absolutely sure you never have to awkwardly pull up next to the idiot who bought the same bike as you again. Mojo Bike lets you choose everything; frame size and shape, wheel dimensions, seat style, handlebars, colour… you name it. Get your mojo flowing and create the ultimate ride. Derrimut.

Papillionaire

Turn Melbourne’s bustling streets into the peddler’s paradise of Amsterdam with these custom-built Dutch-style cycles. With the ability to choose from a range of designs and specifications you can create a perfect ride that blends vintage European class and modern-day comforts. Want a springy, leather bound seat? Cream tyres to match the frame? How about a cherry wood basket? Too easy. You choose the lot here and you’re guaranteed to ride away on one seriously sophisticated bicycle. Collingwood.
