That's Harry's Hollywood Cyclery. I grew up in that neighborhood; it was the Jewish ghetto decades before it was the gay ghetto!

Could my new Chicago Schwinn actually be from Chicago ? Anyone know of any other Severson Schwinn shops or were they a big retailer with several stores in many cities? No location indicated.

Last Sunday's ride
I bought this bike from the original owner in 2015 who used to live in Cupertino. He had bought it for his wife , who hated the bike . Consequently it never got ridden. At 78 years old he sold his bikes and I was in the right place at the right time. I tried to get info on Stan's Cyclery but they have been gone for a while. It was a time capsule, all original with the correct Brooks Professional(correct date stamp) saddle and everything. I ride it a lot and love this bike. It would be cool to know a little about the bike shop that sold it. Joe joesvintageroadbikes.wordpress

You could reach out to Cupertino bike shop, they may have a breadcrumb, been there for a long time and have always been a go to.

The Highwheeler was a north Dallas bike shop that closed sometime late in the last century. They didnít put stickers on their bikes, they hand painted their name tastefully on the top tube. Hereís my 1973 Mercian Vincitore.

I did reach out right after I bought the bike via email and got a response from someone who knew or was the brother of the owner . I emailed that person and never heard back . Perhaps I should revisit this. Thank you Joe

You're welcome, sounds good. I love drilling down on this stuff, you never know when the right person might get involved and crack it wide open or have a great story that makes it well worth the effort.

I also feel that keeping the discussion alive on any of this helps insure less of it becomes lost for good.

Not mine, but you don't often see shop sticker photos posted in a CL ad. This one is on a Ross Eurotour from Brooklyn and the shop may no longer be in business.
