“Our customers range from individuals, bicycle communities, cafés, and newlyweds seeking souvenirs for the big day,” added Yudi. “A number of Indonesian celebrities, among them [actress] Ira Wibowo, also ordered our bikes.”

Yudi said Ais Creative Miniatur Bicycle expanded their sales overseas. “Many of our customers live in Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Australia and Europe,” he noted.

“Among them are [MotoGP racer] Alex Marquez” Yudi recalled.

“We had no idea that he was famous. We were only aware of his identity when he uploaded a picture [of the bike we made him] in his Instagram account, then mentioned us.”

Thriving during Covid-19

While Covid-19 has struck other businesses hard, the pandemic and the lifestyle changes in its wake benefited Ais Creative Miniatur Bicycle.

“Business is good as demand for our bicycles increased [during the Covid-19 pandemic],” he said.

“Nowadays, we manage to make at least 14 scale model bikes for an average monthly revenue of Rp. 25 million [USD 1,732.42].”

So for anyone who wants to perk up their study with miniature bikes, Ais Creative Miniatur Bicycle might just be their go-to place.
