Thank you for this post.

Have a wholesale sales sheet from them consisting of eight or ten undated pages.

From internal clues I have tentatively dated it as the 1973/74 time.

The address is the one on Wilshire Blvd.

Have always assumed this to be accommodation addie of their attorney's office or a mail box as that stretch of real estate far too expensive for a bicycle warehouse.

Sorry I never responded to this thread, but that's indeed the same place!

We get a lot of old / neat bikes in here. A ton of them recovered from the local landfill / recycling depot.
