They are ready and being shipped! I will receive them coming monday and will show the result. I hope it's been worth the effort. If so, we start thinking about mugs to sip your Java from at work......

Default How to order

They are ready lads! They look amazing. They are slightly off-white with bright Pantone yellow decals. The cap is a wide screw top so you can have easy access with a brush. As said before, the plastic is biodegradable, so buy a lot and save the environment.

Here is how to order: Paypal (gift only) €5 for each bottle you want + shipping. Shipping is the same for each order, so It doesn't matter if you order 1 or 10. Shipping unregistered is the cheapest, but if you want it registered please contact me. The Paypal address is bayoptics[at]me.com

Shipping calculator (unregistered):
Europe 1: €8,69
(Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, France, UK, Italy, Austria, Spain, Sweden
Europe 2: €9,48
(Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia
Europe 3: €10,27
(Albania, Norway, Switzerland, Greenland, Iceland, Channel Islands, Belarus, Turkey
World: €17,20
(USA, South America (incl. Rio), Australia, NZ, SA and all the rest)

Please contact me for further questions! I'll try to ship within a few days after payment has been received.

These shipping quotes are up to 2kg, so no worries about that amount.

The first orders were all shipped today. Let me know when they arrive. Better yet: post pics of your bike with the bottles!

Spikes,

The original artist is Mike Pappaconstantine, or Mike P. and I just want to make sure he get's some credit for the work he did.

They look great BTW.

Thanks,

Not very likely soon. I had to order 500 bottles and still need to sell another 400 before the next project. And even then I am afraid I would not be able to sell another 500 in another color.

Thanks, I'll give it a shot. Although the eBay and Paypal fees are quite steep.

im sure putting the price up a Euro or two wont make that much of a difference,esp if you push the bio degradable side, then you may reach out to the green community as well as the retrobike one
