    Just thinking in terms of 60s accuracy. I'm surprised they didn't have ashtrays for BIKES back then! (Blech!) -Adam

    Yeah no kidding, lol However I wish we still had the freedom to choose we had back then. 8)

    You never know I might find a cool ash tray from back then and add it.

    Re: 60's Bicycle Store Build

    Cool if you find some stuff feel free to email or PM me. I am mostly looking for either items in the boxes,
    or even just the boxes if they are flashy. Many times the boxes are harder to find than the items that go in them. lol
    Will be adding more as I go. Making some clones also to mix in. Stuff that no longer exists mainly. 8)

    Actually planning this as a Mini Bike Shop Museum. I will show it on my Website, and also allow people nearby to come visit and hang out if they like.
    I am in Southern IL. and have had other stop by. Prefer a 24 hour lead time notice though. 8)
