Bikes galore!

The new  Modular LEGO Buildings group on Facebook is proving to be quite popular and has highlighted a few new builders and MOCs.  One of my favourites so far that hasn’t been featured here is Shen Maosheng’s modular bike shop which uses 3 sets of the LEGO Creator Bike Shop & Cafe (31026).

So many bikes!!!  But there’s loads more to it than those.  My favourite details are the double door entrance on the right, the three different yet cohesive elements to the upper facade, the satellite dishes etc on the roof and the external lights that you can see below.

This beautiful building is Shen’s first modular building.  I’m looking forward to seeing an interior for this build as well as Shen’s future builds, including what becomes of the bricks that belong to the cafe part of the official set!

Shen has indicated the additional images will be posted up on MOCpages.  In the meantime, they are available through the Facebook group.

After a while away, we get not just one, but three new modular buildings to feast your eyes on from one of my all time favourite builders Sonicstarlight (Jonathon Grzywacz).

The first is Bricklyn Bike, which sells and repairs skateboards, bikes, scooters and motorcycles.  I love the colour scheme and industrial feel of this building, as well as the cute little bike above the front door.

The next two are the Jewelry Store and  Pizzeria, which are immediately recognisable as being inspired by the LEGO Creator set Bike Shop & Cafe (31026).

Both buildings have apartments upstairs.  I’ve taken the liberty of using the image that shows the buildings with the apartments swapped.  I like this more so as the colours feel more harmonious to me in this combination.

There are lots more images of both the exteriors and fully furnished interiors available in the Flickr albums for the BrickLyn Bike and the Jewelry Store and  Pizzeria.
