A FEW WORDS ABOUT
MEMORY LANE CLASSICS
MEMORY LANE CLASSICS was formed in 1986 as a partnership between Larry Busch, and Harvey Trombley. Harv has been into Whizzer Motorbikes and classic bicycles since 1975; Larry had been into classic bicycles since 1980; he just passed away in February of 2015. It just made sense, that they do it together having been at so many places at the same time in the early years. MLC has done so many things within the hobby’s history, that we thought we’d share just a smattering of them with you here. We have been supplying, restoring, and selling bikes to some of the finest and well known in the hobby, as well as helping to outfit many a famous museums like the “Schwinn History Center”, “The Bicycle Museum Of America”, “The Bicycle Museum in England“, and “Hammacher Schlemmer”. We have helped many re-live their childhoods by getting their bikes back on the road again. One that comes to mind immediately, was the restoration of Muhammad Ali’s childhood bike: which was later featured as an Andy Rooney story on CBS‘“60 Minutes”. We have been introduced in many a magazine; linked to several websites; and over the years, furnished bicycles etc. for several Movies and TV shows.
As you thumb through this website, keep in mind, that we did this whole thing to HAVE FUN! We filled it chock full of items, most of which we have in good supply. However, some items may be of limited quantity: old stock: or no longer produced, such that, even our updating this site multiple times a year just can’t keep up with this change of inventory. So, it’s best to call ahead to make sure we still have just what you need as you gather together your most wanted list. You should know too, that we are way bigger and far better stocked than the website suggests, so if you don’t see it……………just ask! Why ask you say? Well, it‘s because we have several items, some one of a kind, some used, some NOS, several of which are at least 30-50 years old or more. So, we don‘t bother to list one of something anywhere. Therefore, if you don’t ask, how will you ever find that rare treat??!! Helping you envision the place, picture that the peripheral walls (affectionately called the bicycle junkyard) are stocked floor to ceiling with good used items for helping our worldwide audiences’ needs in this hobby. So, we want you to ask, and suggest you don’t give up asking about that holy grail of a bike, fender, fork, rack, or any bicycle/Whizzer item you quest for!
Memory Lane Classics practices all phases of the hobby………we sell, we buy, we trade, and host 3 swap meets annually. So, call, send snail mail pictures, stop by during a swap or listed office hours to let us know how we can make each others’ day. See, it’s our main goal to have YOU be one of our many satisfied Worldwide Customers! We ship 5 days a week, using various couriers, and levels of transit. Therefore, if you need it tomorrow…………….there is usually a way! On our Business Directory, you will find some reputable people we deal with offering their fine levels of service too.
