About a year ago, when we where working late in the studio at Monza Music we started talking about how it was to grow up in the 80s. The conversation naturally transpired into pop culture and BMX bikes. We concluded that the shiny chrome plated bikes from the 80's were quite unique. In particular, they were more than just a means of transportation. For us and our friends they stood for adventure, discovery and friendship. All the three of us owned a bike back then but they had either been stolen or lost. After a few beers we decided to go online to see if we could find our old bikes on eBay. And sure enough we found them and bought one each. Four weeks later they stood in our office. They were just as cool - if not cooler - than we remembered them. Riding on a wave of inspiration we started playing around with the idea of creating our own BMX. The thoughts evolved over time to sketches and drawings. We had read online that many of the 80's BMX frames were manufactured by a Japanese company called Tange. Tange is a legendary manufacturer of bicycle frames and was the de facto standard of quality bicycles in the 80's. A quick google search and we realized that Tange was still active and in the business of making frames. We shot away an email and that became the starting point of an unexpected adventure that has taken us to Tange in Taiwan and multiple visits to bicycle factories.
And now we can proudly announce that we are starting the production of 100 numbered custom built Monza bikes in cooperation with Tange.
Visit us online at www.monzabc.com to reserve your own numbered Monza BMX. The bike will be ready for pickup in the Monza Studio in Stockholm around August/September 2017. International shipping is not included but can be arranged.
