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.
Our latest find is Schwinn Jaguar Mark IV. It is an awesome middleweight men’s
bicycle with many features including deluxe chrome trim, rear carrier, horn, cushion
saddle and spring-type fork. I have to tell you when I first saw it, I couldn’t stop
looking at its radiant color and amazing chrome trim. Mark IV models are from
1959 to all the way to 1962. 100% American made.
Allow me to introduce to you our 1943 BSA Roadster. It is displayed at our home courtyard which is an extension of our vintage home decor.
