I already posted about these but head over to their site, the bikes look mad nice.
"As many of you know, The Ways&Means team has been working on something very special for the past year. And after lots of teasing and sneak previews...It's ready for the public. Kinfolk bicycles are finally for sale. We are really stoked to be working with Kusaka, master frame builder from kansai, japan. It is a real honor that he would choose us to represent his 4 decades of crafting these awesome bicycles. Our goal was simply to produce the bike we would be excited to ride, and I think we knocked it out of the park. We hop you think so too. In addition to Kusaka's beautiful steel, we also offer paint by America's finest bicycle painters, Coat of Portland, Oregon,and ColorFactory, based on the beautiful Jersey Shore. The design is what you would expect from Ways&Means, and to top it all off, we have a classy headbadge designed by our main man, Marco Hernandez, of Lit Fuse tattoo in Beautiful Olympia, WA. Good times.
We have lots of new stuff coming over the summer. We're building a collaboration bike with the Bike shop Chari&Co. that is gonna be hot! So stay tuned.
Enough talk though... head over to www.kinfolkbicycles.com and see them for yourself. And even if you're not in the market for a custom track bike, spread the word. It's the support of our friends that has got us this far, and we appreciate all of the help, motivation, advice,and interest that you all have given us. That's why we called this project Kinfolk. It's all about family."
