I met these cool guys after my lecture at the architecture faculty at the National Autonomous University of Mexico. They are readers of Cycle Chic - I'm always humbled and amazed to meet readers around the world.
I noticed the cool paint job on the bikes and the chap on the right told me he paints them by hand. It takes four days per bike but THAT is personalising your bike in extreme style. Wicked cool. Cool bikes made cooler with TLC and paint.
Here's a friend of theirs riding one of the hand-painted bikes on Reforma boulevard on Sunday.
And a close up. Kind of. Of the paint job(s).
