Velo Paris, Osaka

A few weeks ago we posted a photo of a classic French tourer we passed whilst out and about in Osaka. Yesterday we actually noticed the sign next to where the bike was parked and discovered Velo Paris, a wonderful shop specializing in lovingly restored classic French bicycles.

The shop is spacious and well stocked with bicycles, retro parts, accessories and a range of beautifully made functional clothing. Parent company Mamborama has it's own in house label, NECESSARY or UNNECESSARY. Owner Tomokazu-san is friendly, knowledgable and very passionate about what he sells.

Located downstairs in the same Annex building is the stylish Cafe Colombia, well worth a visit and the Colombia latte is delicious!
