You can build on a bike’s tradition, but can’t take the tradition out of the bike.
This Husqvarna bicycle, remodeled in Sao Paolo by Paulo Zapella, retains its original structure while receiving a shiny makeover. Husqvarna, a subsidiary of BMW Motorrad, initially produced motorcycles - and its lineage can even be traced as far back as 1689.
Zapella revitalized the Husky’s frame, forks and fenders by stripping and repainting them with a coat of maroon with white pinstripes. The bike belonged to the customer’s father, and according to its registration plate was produced in 1954. Wooden grips add a touch of old-school charm, while a high-tech Brooks B135 saddles transitions this bike into the modern day.
