I couldn’t edit into my previous post, but I found a few more tidbits of information about this shop that I wanted to add.

Sorry for the poor quality photo’s.
This is all that was available.

It does appear, that the shop was in a converted house, which seems to be long gone in the satellite photo’s on the previous page.

But, this definitely looks like it was a thriving shop back in its day.

I like how the Indian bicycles stood tall right alongside their motorized brethren.

And a nice letter from the manufacturer, about how much they appreciate Big Jim’s efforts over there in Harley Country.
It’s always fun to see what information can be gleaned from that little point of purchase decal, that sometimes adorns these bikes when they are found.

cycles de Oro - owned by Dale Brown (now retired), a progenitor of the Classic Rendezvous here in NC.

They are still in business and have been the "go to" folks for high end lightweights for decades.

Transfer worn by Stella (France) model 75 road cycle of 1973.

One can only speculate as to origin of odd name...

San Francisco has long had an active bicycle messenger culture. Perhaps the shop was set up to cater to these customers...

Shop long closed. Unable to locate a street address for it.

Ned, Are you out there?

Picked up this thrift store bike because it had an almost new set of Kendas for Schwinn S-6 rims I am in need of.

Had this shop sticker. Found in Venice, Fl. Don't see many vintage bikes in this area. Snowbirds don't bring their old bikes with them.

I wonder how it got here. Maybe Ned knows.
