Handmade Bicycle Show

Not sure where this goes, but we had a great time at the Handmade Bicycle Show, last Saturday. It was hosted by Montenegro Mfg, in downtown LA. Lots of cool bikes, pretty shiny objects, paint and details.

Edit: Why can't I edit my Title typo? Doesn't seem to work 😡




Looks like speckle paint is back in style. Nice effect.

The 20 MTB & road bikes from Plante Cycles belong to my son.

In terms of paint, the splatter frame from MMFG and galaxy frame from Dark Moon are fantastic. No idea if the frames are well made or total junk- didnt get past the superficial.

Looks like it was a small, local show. Interesting paint jobs.

It was a small local show put on by Montenegro Mfg. at their shop on Daly St., near Dodger Stadium. Half a dozen exhibitors, and a few more vendors. Good times.
