Dad's old Bike shop.
#1
So I was talking with my mom she was reminiscing about my dad's old bike shop that he owned in the early 80's. This was a very small shop in Birdsboro PA, called Whispering Wheels Bicycle Gallery. She was telling me all about it. (I was a toddler at the time they sold it by the time I was 5). She told be they carried Redline, GT, Matsuri, and Miyata. We started talking about this special decorative bicycle window that was still in the shop to this day. (she saw it in Feb. when she visited last) I'm thinking "wait one minute, I bet I can find this place on google." I pull up google street view and get right to the spot where it is, and there just happens to be a Giant dump truck in the way at that same moment!!!



Long post I know, but I am going to see if I have any relatives up there still that could snap a photo of it for me.

I've been thinking about this post for a bit now. To make a long story short you may have other options. If you haven't had any luck thus far, send me a private message and we'll chat. I can't make any promises, but it may be worth a shot.

Good News, An old family friend went through there last week and snapped a picture for me. She is going to email it to me soon.

Damn, it looks like the window is gone, the pictures didn't have a trace of it. It must have been renovated.
