Vintage Bikes Restored and Customized by Hand

View all 13 Photos

Cycles Lelapin is a French workshop that restores and customizes vintage bicycles, all by hand. The studio designs for men, women, and children, and each of their pieces is unique. Fans will never see Cycles Lelapin use the same paint color twice. A fine example of their work, the Fernand, is built on a 70s Peugeot and painted ivory for an old worldlook.
