You’ve been in Labold and Sons Spot Cash but have you been in the basement? Whoa! With repurposed wood, Bikes, Signs, Chairs, doors and other odds and ends it’s an adventure just walking down the stairs. Oh and since we mentioned bikes, check these out:
1952 Schwinn Typhoon – super nice original bike that was bought new here in B.G. at Howard’s bicycle shop. It is all original from paint to tires. Highly desired standard Typhoon (painted wheels and fenders versus chrome).
1963 Schwinn Tiger – I have changed this bike around a bit since this photo was taken but thought it was a cool shot anyways.
1975 Schwinn Stingray Fastback – Super wide rear slick, extra tall sissy bar, streamers, rear view mirrior, hand brakes etc. It is a nice original bike loaded with accessories. This is Danielle’s personal ride.
1977 Nishiki – Very nice original road bike. It has a unique lugged frame with good components. These bikes are going up in value fast and are hard to find.
1967 Columbia lightweight English racer– Nice original bike, Columbia was America’s first bicycle company. True barn find from beautiful downtown Alvaton, Ky.
1968 Schwinn Typhoon/Stingray– Cool little bike with accessory bars and white stripe tires (those tires are rare and cost as much as car tires).
1963 Schwinn– Set up to look like an old board track racer. Fun to ride and looks like a super expensive ex-racer. Some bikes are just cooler than others.
’75 and ’68 Stingrays
Group of Schwinn Stingrays – left to right ’68, ’67, & ’75. The coppertone one in the middle is a super rare 5 speed (notice tall shifter) that is currently undergoing a light restoration.
Labold and Sons has really become a friend to the “Buy Local” community and over the next year we hope the city embraces their unique shop as they develop their concept. Located at 326 E. Main Ave. currently you can fan them on facebook.
