ORCellana is a gorgeous custom bike design by the Milanese workshop Orco Cicli. Inspired by famous porcelain such as Germany’s Meissen and Hungary’s Herend, the bicycles are hand-painted with traditional motifs and finished with a transparent epoxy. This gives the bicycles a genteel, old-timey look that you don’t often find on two wheels. The design is rounded out with Brooks leather detailing in the form of a navy seat and white grips, a Nitto Moustache handlebar, vintage Campagnolo brake levers, and durable hubs by Gran Compe. Each bike is handmade to order, and the result is almost too pretty to ride down a muddy city street.
