A bicycle from another world

With a focus a little more on the bicycle this week, we’d like to share with you these images of a guy called Mas, and his amazing Soviet-era bicycle. Mas is unsurprisingly proud of his machine, brought over, he explained, from Poland and refurbish by him and the rest of those industrious guys over at Punk Bikes in Cardiff.

This bike is straight from whole different world, and we just had to take some close ups of the frame.Take the head tube badge showing a lovely swallow and a radiant sunrise, bold red ‘CCCP’ lettering and an embossed ‘XB3’ using a typeface which looks so modern. Or the quite crudely drawn shield, swallow and wheels logo on the seat tube badge. And where a UK bicycle might have a frame material badge like ‘531’ there’s another red CCCP logo leaving no mistake where this bicycle is from. We’re not sure about you, but we would love to have a bicycle like this, and are more than a little bit envious! Maybe one day…
