I stumbled accross Mikko & one of his Bridgestones about a month ago when I took my Pelizzoli to Pelago to get some parts installed.
Having seen his other Bridgestone I threw him the idea of wanting to photograph some of his bikes and unsuprisingly a few weeks later we were down at the Pasila trainyards in Helsinki snapping pictures at sunset.
This bike made it’s way from Japan to NYC to Helsinki and now it’s been built up with proper components to suit. Beautiful build and the owner is a real nice fella as well.
Here are a few of the first edits:
I’ve been coming across this particular bike for a few weeks now and I just had to take pics when I saw it locked up alone in front of a particular cafe I often hang out at.
I love the small subtle details like the my little pony stuck to the break bridge and yellow handlebar tape. It looks like it’s a well loved and used bike worthy of it’s pictures.
