Sheldon...your wonderful work inspired me to get off my A$$ and get back into bikes. I grew up next door to Harris when it was on the "south" side of the street by the Movie theatre. 30+ years later I was back at my parents house. No bike...except my Dad's original 1930 Raliegh sport he bought from Ben Olken at the BX....that many years ago. Being frisky and motivated by Sheldon's love of the bike, I put air in the original tyres and rode the 9 miles to the new shop on the North side of the street. Good for them, they were busy. Sonny was there. Busy which was good for all LBSs. Opted to not ask about Sheldon but know he would have loved to see a 75+ year old bike just rode on over....on original tyres!
Best wishes Sheldon. We are thinking of you and hope you are ready when the snow melts....if it ever comes!
