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.

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.
