For immediate media release:


June 1, 2017


Can a “classic” steel bike be fast, lightweight, and hand built in the modern era?

We challenged ourselves to build a timeless bike with the feel and flavor of a top-end vintage race bike, but with all the benefits of Speedvagen technology and modern components.


Meet the OG Classic, a minimalist-vintage-inspired-all-day road machine. Spec'd in a purely classic, trend-bucking, modern polished silver build kit - every part was considered to the fullest extent, featuring many custom US and Italian made parts from companies that we love to work with.


Hand made at The Vanilla Workshop, available only for a limited time. We’re not here to make a gagillion bikes. We’re here to make a few, very labor intensive bikes that will be truly meaningful for their owners.
