Coco's Has the Pins You Want

Coco’s Variety, run by Mister Jalopy, is kind of like the auto dealership Hooniverse would run, but with bikes. He takes in used bikes, spruces them up with new parts as needed, and sells them at reasonable prices. Coco’s even loans tools. His shop is in an older part of LA, and used to an auto shop specializing in superchargers. In fact, it’s still got a distributor tester and old-school dyno. No more dizzy recurving takes place, but he will clean up and tune up your bike as needed, for a reasonable price.
In addition to classy used and new bikes, Coco’s lives up to its full name of Coco’s Variety for the ephemera they carry. This recent batch of assorted racing pins, inlcuding a Senna victory pin from ’91? All $3. Personally, the Elf ones are calling my name.
And to think, I used to live like walking distance from this establishment…More: Coco’s Vareity

    What a cool store. I feel the need to make a pilgrimage. Wish he was in Seattle; I'd love to have him upgrade my lugged steel frame trek to accept a disk brake in front.

    I'm betting these would make some nifty baksheesh. Buttonwillow racers take notice!
