A factory built to make every wish come true, especially those for two wheels. A pool of brilliant minds spread around New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo. A wealth of experience ranging from design to manufacturing and the latest production techniques.

Kinfolk is all this and more, a brand of bicycles, accessories and apparel, which has become a lifestyle thanks to the enterprise of these friends and the skill of Shuichi Kusaka, a seventy-three year old master craftsman who makes every bicycle model by hand in Kansai, Japan.

From here, they are sent all around the world. You can choose from different frame diameters and customise the fork or the seat post, with the relevant steering column. All the models are chrome plated: you just have to choose the colour. It takes between four and six weeks to make a bike. Worldwide shipping is available.
