Thursday evening we’ll be presenting a pretty special bicycle in our Prenzlauer Berg store. We’ve just completed the build of this limited edition Futura Colnago frameset.
These artist edition frames, presented together in 2008 in the travelling exhibition “Look Ma No Hands!”, were the result of a collaboration between Nadir Olivet of LaCarrera (Toronto) and Ernesto Colnago, plus the creative talents of old school Graffiti legends Futura and Stash.
Our interpretation of a Futura Colnago bicycle features a dramatic and attention-getting twist; many of the components have been gold plated. The leather saddle and handlebar wrap were given special treatment by the Bike Styler, a.k.a ‘Toons’.
We recently did a fashion shoot with our photographer pal Tino Pohlmann, featuring our Futura Colnago amongst other collectable bikes from Dustin’s collection.
Come and see the finished bike itself and the accompanying photography here in the shop on the 17th of March. The Vernissage begins at 7pm and we’ll be here ’til 11pm.
Stop by our stand at the Berliner Fahrradschau.
