Kalavinka Sunset Custom

Design collaboration build with Tanabesan of Kalavinka Cycles here in Tokyo. I revamped some of his logos and collaborated on some shirt designs in return for this frame. The top tube decal I created for the shirts that eventually we decided to use for this. The lady on the seat tube I found from the depths of the shop and chopped off some surrounding designs to simplify it. The senjafuda on the fork is my japanese family name with the words 'konjo' meaning spirit and 'dokyo' for courage. The omamori on the seat stands for 'victory'.

NJS builds are a killer! Wish there’s more fixed gear companies out there making more steel frames as mainstreams since they hold up to abuse more than aluminum or carbon frames, truly a work of art you have!
