Interesting treatment of the classic scene, giving it an almost timeless look, except for the Monty Python reference by the shop owner. One also picked up by Rinie in this shot from Brazil.

Default To RGatward: Hello Richard

I see the Super Bicycle Repair Man in the wall, but I don't see he is the Monty Python. Thanks for the link to Rinie picture, because in this nice pict, Rinie has another link to the Monty Python history.
I'm sad because my english is not enought to understand it, but I like very much te MP because in the 80's, the catalonian television show all the episodes, but translated to catalonish. I think today somebody forbidden another serie like the Monty Python. Thank you very much for your comment.

Yes, the sign is clearly a reference to MP, since it was an original idea of their's to portray a Bicycle Repair Man as superhero (as in the sktech Rinie links to). Also MP was very popular in the Netherlands, and most people there are aware of the many catch phrases and references. Did you see my theme (which Rinie has her shot in) of photos named after MP quotes, we had some fun with that last year.
