Founded in Melbourne, Australia, based both Down Under and in Red Hook, Brooklyn, Papillionaire Bicycles specialize in vintage Dutch-style classic and commuter bikes (as well as helmets, bells, horns, lights, locks -- the whole bike accessories shebang). Modern, simple, and easy-riding, Papillionaire Bikes merge a timeless aesthetic with contemporary design; cultural, vibrant, modern. We’re major fans of the Sommer and Mixte models. Their goal? To create bicycles for the urban lifestyle, so you can buy milk on the corner, swim at the municipal pool, and live amongst your friends, in neighborhoods -- and get around on a Papillionaire.
