To celebrate the 5th anniversary of Brooklyn bike shop Affinity Cycles, they teamed up with Mishka and Lamour Supreme to work on this sick lookin’ custom. This is only an edition of 5 so if you keen on gettin’ one, be sure to hit Affinity up online for more info. Below is what Мишка have to say about this collab:
“We met up with Affinity at Project in Las Vegas this year, and decided our own Lamour Supreme was the perfect person to design a Мишка/Affinity bike. Affinity supplied Lamour with five raw Kissena track frames, and he hand painted each frame. He was so excited he did the first one on the tradeshow floor (which you can see in the video above).
As you can see, they feature all kinds of Мишка and Affinity designs, including some razor mouthed Keep Watch action on the front and one of the best Cyco Simon Skulls I’ve seen in a while, all over an imposing camouflage base.
The results are five one of a kind pieces celebrating the five years Affinity Cycles have been building gear for the track racer and the street rider alike in NYC. All five custom painted frames are for sale as a complete bikes or as a frame-sets.”
You can buy just the frame or a complete bike and a portion of the proceeds from the frames will go to the Kissena Velo Fund, a non-profit project spearheaded by Affinity, currently working to bring a world class indoor 250 meter velodrome to NYC. You can purchase them now from the Affinity online store.
