VINTAGE WOMEN & BICYCLES

Images I found in my vintage bicycle book.

Do you remember Western Auto?

Western Auto was a specialty retail that supplied auto parts and accessories. Also was known for  selling Western Flyer bicycle.  I remember back in the 70’s, when I was a little girl, my mom used to shop for auto parts for her car. While waiting for her, I had to look at the bikes. My eyes were all over. Wow! Nice bicycles. I have never had one of these bicycles as a kid.  But now there are some in our vintage collection at The Vintage Lab.  Later on I will add in the gallery additional images of the different ones we are working on.

“Off the chain”

image

“Off the chain”.  expression meaning da bomb, really good, crazy,  fantastic or awesome.  Just like my  vintage sign. I have made this sign for my husband.  I have used a  bicycle chain to spell out the word ” bike” and a couple of bicycle sprocket. There were glued using clear silicone on a reclaimed piece of wood that I got from inside of an  old bicycle shop. Now it is placed at a wall as part of our vintage collection at The Vintage Lab.  Nice isn’t it?
