New Bici Classica Osaka

A visit to the newly located Bi Ci Classica store in Osaka earlier this month. The new shop is a two minute walk from the original store and still a palace of vintage Italian steel...


The bright and beautifully designed store is absolutely packed with bikes, parts and roadie memorabilia...
