Ladies and gentlemens… I have fallen in love.
This is the Sommer from Papillionaire Bicycles and I want one. Bad.
For the last few years now I have been casually stalking vintage bikes on ebay – I’ve bid on a few, and drooled over a few others, but so far I’ve not managed to bag the right one.
Just for something different, I thought I would look into a brand new bike, made in a vintage style, and it was then that I stumbled upon Papillionaire. They only sell two styles of bikes, one for the gentlemen and one for the ladies, and I just love, love, love them! Unfortunately, I have found my perfect bike right at a point in time when I am furiously saving my coin – alas! But I shall have one… even if I have to wait until next year (please don’t make me wait until next year!!!)… a Maya (blue) Sommer will be mine. Or, maybe a Boston (red) Sommer. No, blue. Red?
