List your OLD SCHOOL BMX Bike Shop Here

When I bought my Torker back in 1981, we had a bike shop in my town called BIKE ALLEY. Ive been searching for a few old school things lately on the net but have had no luck and then decided to call the place where I bought my bike. I havent been there in years but was amazed it was still there and ran by the same guy that sold me my bike when I was 11 years old.
He didnt have what I was looking for but he might have what your looking for or know someone who does?
These old school shops could be of big help to some of us.If you know of any in your town that are still in operation,please post the name,number or website for some of us.
Bottom line is that im kinda burnt on Ebay sales. I hope this info is helpful to someone.

Four Sons Cyclery
Hamburg Tpke
Wayne, NJ

THis shop was owned by my brother-in-law's family BITD. He sponsored a team that raced locally mostly at Craimeur.

It closed down 10 or more years ago or so. All the stuff is pretty much gone but there is talk that there is a complete Sting stashed away at their family's house.

Clifton Speed Center
Main Ave
Clifton

partially sponsored a bunch of riders (like me)  in the area or at least gave them t-shirts and uniforms to wear when they raced at the tracks like Braddock. Got a lot of my bike parts there. Shop is still there but I heard he latest owner got in some trouble with Johnny Law.

Great guys!  Super knowledgable.  They took the lead on restoring my Boss and are currently working on my 85' Redline, both of which I originally purchased from them.  Zach Pilgrim is the mechanic who's been helping me out.  A BMX guy himself.  Definitely give him a call if you need some help with your biuld.  He loves this stuff.  And they ship all over the world.

Re: List your OLD SCHOOL BMX Bike Shop Here

Mine was:

Jimmie's Bike Shop
Shreveport, LA

Shreve Island Bicycle Center
Shreveport, LA

The original owner's of Shreve Island Bicycle Center sell items on eBay. I will have to see if I can find their seller ID. I saw a flyer for a freestyle show (81 or 82) signed by Mike Buff for sale a few weeks ago on eBay. The show was in Shreveport, LA at Shreve Island Bicycle Center.

The battery is discharging, the oil temperature is very high, the oil pressure is very low, water temperature is off the chart and I am running out of petrol...but the clock is correct.

Re: List your OLD SCHOOL BMX Bike Shop Here

cool thread cool

Main bike world
Old Forge, PA

it's no longer there, but the wilkes barre/kingston location is still open.

also...

Cedar Bike
Scranton PA
& Dickson City, PA

this one was too far to ride to as a kid, so it wasn't "my" OS bike shop.  They own one of the oldest tracks in the east (about 28 years old now i think)  i have all the cedar stuff up on the map
