Bespoked - a celebration of handmade bicycles & those who make them
A keen cyclist all my life, I doodled my design idea way back in 2003. In 2012 I had one built for me but, unfortunately, I was hit by a car and it was written off. I decided to build one myself and learnt at The Bicycle Academy. I obtained the European Registered Design Certificate, passed it through the European Standards and now proudly present to you the MacKenzie Cyclone. Crafted in my workshop at home, every one is custom built by me, and individualised with choice components. I can’t wait to see you at the show to talk bikes.

My name is Michael Mascarel , I build bespoke steel bicycle under the name of Masca Frameworks, my workshop is based on Reunion Island. I aim to build exquisite one of a kind bicycle locally with a global outreach. Gaining and refining my skills, learning the trade, having a proper workshop, and being part of a greater vision, that is where the effort is that. For now it is more of an expensive passion of mine for I am at the very beginning of the story and two steps does not make a path. Reaching the ultimate is the mind set.
