I looked up My Jalopy's bike shop, Coco's Variety, and finally met him, got some photos of the shop too

http://www.cocosvariety.com/ is the store site,
Coco's Variety's primary business is bicycles. Additionally, we sell Japanese figural pencil erasers, used bike parts, old toolboxes, books worth owning, bike pumps, vintage novelty French flags, metric measuring tapes, bicycle tools, wicker bike baskets and bicycle cargo bags for the carting of fresh produce, the transportation of books of French poetry and the rescuing of kittens.

At this time, we sell neither pancakes nor parakeets.

Fall Hours
Open 7 days, my friend
Daily 10:30 - 6:30

 http://www.misterjalopy.com/ is a bit of a bio on Mr Jalopy, but if you've been reading since around 2007, I did a couple of posts linking to his site "Hooptyrides"

In addition to selling and renting Linus bicycles, Coco's is engaged in the refurbishment, repair and sale of used bicycles. From the scrap iron dealer's mud puddle, we buy bikes that nobody else wants. We buy junkers, clunkers, road bikes, mountain bikes, mixtes, European bicycles, stepthrough ten speeds, heavy bikes, skip tooth relics, racing bikes, 80's splatter paint disasters, suspension bikes, track bikes, cruisers, bruisers and midnight losers.

We believe the bicycle with the greatest positive impact on the environment is a fading champion that has already served a meaningful life and is resuscitated for a second chance at glory.

I remember that most girls bikes in the 70's had wicker baskets, and that is cool

Here is Mr Jalopy himself. The man with no jalopies. http://hooptyrides.blogspot.com/ is one of the first blogs I started looking at, and enjoying immensely. He's finally adding to it again, not that my encouragement is in vain, but he didn't post 2 dozen things in 2009-2011 and that was why I had to pull Hooptyrides of my recommended list back in 2009. But I'm encouraged that he's back!

So let's see how 2013 goes at http://hooptyrides.blogspot.com/ because he posts some of the coolest things like:
 a 1931 Montana mail carrier car,

a '65 Ferrari 330GT 2+2 (Four seater) Berlinetta
