The proprietor of Patio Bike in Hales Corners, a Milwaukee suburb, is an old timer and may have something. The Kegel family who own's the Wheel & Sprocket empire may have archives. The founder, Chris, passed a little while ago though. The aforementioned Ben's on Milwaukee's south side is my personal LBS and is never short on knowledge. Yellow Jersey in Madison always had a ton of vintage stuff when they were near the capitol, maybe they know a little about vintage cycling in SE WI.

Other places that have been around a while: Allis Bike, South Shore Cylcery, The Bikesmiths. I don't know these places well but they've stood the test of time in MKE.

Reaching out to some of the SE Wisconsin cycle clubs or WI ride organizers (Bike Wisconsin comes to mind) may at least yield some leads.
