Restored vintage bicycles by Melbourne-based Wheels and Dames

Spring has finally SPRUNG in the Southern Hemisphere (woohoo!) and if there’s one must-have item for summer this year, it would have to be a good looking vintage-style bicycle. LUCKILY there appears to be no shortage of places to get one!

For the purists out there, Wheels and Dames (formerly Melbourne Vintage Bikes) restore ladies vintage bicycles from the 1970’s and 80’s.  They do a stellar job restoring these gorgeous bikes to their former glory – complete with white wall tyres, leather saddles and wicker baskets.   They also sell all their  bike accessories (saddles, baskets, lights, mirrors, bells, handgrips etc) online, and they ship Australia-wide.

Wheels and Dames auction their bikes online and they also take custom orders.  You can view some of their previous projects here.

Jeepers.  So much two-wheeled goodness going on in Melbourne at present.  I am seriously thinking I will be kicked out of my neighbourhood pretty soon if I don’t invest in some form of carbon-neutral transportation!  SSshhh.

    LUCY! You *need* a bike in Melbourne! It was one of the first things I got when I came back and I adore mine xoxo It’s not as vintagey as these gorgeous things, but is the perfect size for a petite missus.

    Enjoy the sunshine darling! xoxo

    These bikes were also used as a great diplay in Hawthorn at The Works- it was in the main front window!!

    looked excellent.

    I have a heavy old bike that I’m wanting to replace, and I drool over these bikes, but i wonder how heavy the vintage and ‘vintage style’ bikes are, with those chunky frames.
