Bike and parts sale in Memphis

Beth Huff found this on the internet...looks like a great sale in Memphis this weekend!!

The first phase of the liquidation of the historic Memphis Bicycle Company will be held this Saturday and Sunday May 16 & 17 from 8 am to 5 pm at the old store at 2575 Summer Ave. There are many old Schwinn and other brand bicycles, parts, signs, etc., going back over 50+ years. Many bicycles still in original boxes that were never sold. Cruiser bikes from the 1950s - 60s, 10-speeds from the 1970s, tons of parts, seats, bike racks, frame and hand pumps, tires, tubes... Too much to list. The pictures do not do it justice. The new owners of the building are selling the contents to the public for very reasonable prices. Bikes range from $25-55 on average, with a few more expensive models. Saddles and seats, tires, tubes, derailleurs, tubes, etc., all ranging around $5 each. Bundling items for better prices is encouraged, as they need to clear everything out. this is a GREAT opportunity to see some Memphis bicycle history and get some really cool vintage gear for a fraction of its price.
