Thank you Lorin, Chuck, Burl, Armando and Otis -- I cannot thank you enough for sharing so about Mr. Ferguson -- and Señor Philipe! I am one who gets pretty sentimental and always in happy way reviewing the past, whether true or memory-modified, and your reports really ginned my recollect of LA and the SG Valley, not to mention the bike-ness of that little shop on the boulevard.
I fiddle with decal recreations, and my graphics (pre-print) are, at least in my opinion, dandy. My next project on the Mac is to make new, and accurately, the SG Bike Shop sticker that was on virtually all of my bikes - especially my 1960 Olmo track bike that I really miss (my SG bikes were not all Swiss).
Nope, cannot get to the NAHB show, this year at least, so I'll try my luck sliding into you in the sawdust at Philipe's, some day.
Once again, thank you for the push on my coast down .... What was the name of that Lane?
