The Czech-based framebuilder company Festka is always pushing the envelope of frame design and their latest build does just that. The Spectre Porcelain was created for a bike collector from Bangkok who is a lover of vintage porcelain. With the help of Czech artist Michal Bačák, Festka has created a finish, unlike anything they’ve made before. Michal hand-painted this frame to emulate a vintage porcelain heirloom piece, yet unlike fragile porcelain, this bike can be used quite rigorously.
Michal designed his own amalgam of the Portuguese Azulejo and English Churchill Blue Willow porcelain designs. He illustrated the entire bike by hand and added in 24-carat gold accents. Each gesture, every drop of paint was approved by the client, resulting in a true timeline depicting the owner’s life. Also be sure to check our list of 10 amazing vintage bicycles.
