I was in Paris last weekend and I was pleased by the decoration of the hotel bar (Ibis Bercy). Much of the furniture were made of bicycle parts, not to mention that the staff wore jerseys. The bar name is ''Les six jours'' refering to the 6 days track race that was held at the beginning of the 20th century.
I think that local frame builder could build that kind of things, to reach prospects with artistic and low priced stuff. It would be a very credible offer since custom bicycles are also works of art and creativity. A foot in the door to sell them a brand new frame!
