Bici calaca de Mission Bicycles

Mission Bicycle has always been a small business very active and involved in the local community and are based out of the Mission District on Valencia street. I am overdue to pay a visit over their shop, but make sure you stop by to see their display of their popular papel picado sometime this weekend. I'd like to thank them for sending these fotos over, David one of their creative crew members hand-drew this, pretty cool :)

Very elegantes calacas, I'm sure Posadas would have love to ride this bici.

Dia de los muertos bike
"We wanted to show our recognition of Dia de los Muertos and it's importance to our neighborhood, and it seemed only natural that we'd include a bike. So we asked our staffer David, who's a talented artist, and he gladly took on the project. He went home with a naked white frame and came back with a beautiful artifact for the holiday. He drew the entire thing by hand, covering the bike in images, and then reassembled the bike." -Mission Bicycle.
