Master Krono: Vintage Luxury Bicycles Creates An Amazing Bicycle Customized With Traditional Japanese Art

Javier Jubete is the owner of Vintage Luxury Bicycles, an atelier that specializes in reworking exotic classics with extremely rare components – mainly those by Campagnolo – and usually plated in gold. Javier’s latest celebrates the two cultures of Italy and Japan: a Master Krono bike intricately engraved with traditional Japanese motifs, like the Ryū or Tatsu dragon on the rear derailleur. Interestingly, the work was completed by two non-Japanese craftsmen: Madrid’s Pedro Villarrubia and the UK’s Shaun Hughes, but both have extensive experience applying the Wabori style to metal using traditional techniques. A Campagnolo tubular wheelset were also emblazoned with Nishikigoi brocaded carp, symbols of love and friendship in Japan, and it is with that spirit that the Japanese and Italian cultures were combined in this amazing machine.
