LA-based artists ToMo, Fallen Fruit, Sket One and Zachary Crane were each given a Martone Cycling Co. bike to reimagine. Not only are they reimagining the look of the bike, but also the functionality of the bike as transportation, but also a work of art.

The Bikes are on display at Robinson’s store in Santa Monica and are up for sale (spoiler alert: they’re not cheap!). A fifth bike will be displayed and available for purchase to the public at Robinson’s Melrose Avenue Store.
