A new generation of vintage bike

Our aim is to integrate bike-riding seamlessly into your everyday life. Whether you’re in jeans, a dress, a suit or flip-flops, riding a Papillionaire is easy, clean and fun, with each model customizable to suit your own unique style. We've worked tirelessly to create bikes not only chic and modern, but built to last a lifetime, bringing classic European design to the streets of the US.

We maintain stores across the globe. Drop into our Brooklyn, New York location or one of our US stockists and take a test ride today or visit our online shop for free shipping across the US. 

 

Vintage Oliva

The purpose of this not-for-profit site is to encourage those interested in enjoying and preserving vintage lightweight "racing" style bicycles of the period from the early 20th century until 1983. These are primarily steel, most often lug built, not welded, injection molded, or glued. Here we are devoted to road and pista machines, not mountain bikes.

La Boriosa

A combination of clean lines and stylish curvature. No longer must the racers amongst us hem their pant legs in socks.

The Papillionaire Classic sports traditional handlebars for a natural gripping position, and a deep frame and optional toe clips for more aggressive riding.

It is perfect for the ladies and the gentleman.
