He reportedly has several Confente bikes. Unfortunately, the day I was there, they were moving out of their quaint, old wooden framed shop and were not open to visitors. I don't remember the name of the shop, although it may have been Winning Wheels, or where they moved, but apparently it has been in Pacific Grove for about 30 years, so would have been around when Mario Confente was building there. I also heard that Jonathan Boyer lives in the area and has a collection of Confente bikes, but I didn't attempt to make contact with him. Does someone know about this? Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
