Thought it would be nice to start a list of bike shops that cater to the rat/cruiser crowd. If you know of a good shop that has great service and a good supply of parts, post it along with the state and address and I will try to keep a list going.

He doesn't have a lot but he does have a few things, he is where I got my Spaceliner Klunker, a Grey Ghost which I believe was a 1999 but that was last year but I couldn't afford it, I got my Murray Santa Cruz & the Western flyer there too and he sells New & Used bicycles.

Info from his site: His grandfather was Bicycle Bill And from the facebook about his grandfather: Currey's Bicycle Store was the largest Schwinn Dealer.

My LBS is Bumstead's Bicycles, 1038 W. Fourth St, Ontario California 91762. It's the oldest family owned and operated bike shop in the USA, in business since 1909. They are super friendly, helpful, and very reasonably priced. I've going to them since the early 1980's.

Rydjor Bike Shop
219 North Main Street, Austin, MN 55912
Phone: 507-433-7571
http://rydjor.com/

If you are within a hundred miles of Austin, Mn and you need some special "watchamadinggy" for your bike, go straight to Rydjor Bike. While your there, check out their collection of 84 vintage bikes in their bike museum. By the time you finish, the friendly staff will have your ride ready to go. They are more geared toward your mainstream shop-work, but are more than capable of handling rat-work.
