Shaw's Lightweight Cycles
Now closed
45 Washington Street,
Santa Clara, California
 

Shaw's was tucked away behind and in-between.. Definitely a "destination" store!
But Terry Shaw's reputation kept pulling in customers. The shop was great fun to just browse
in as there were all sorts of neat products, frames parts and mementos of past glory.


 

 

The legendary, irascible "Professor" Terry Shaw.

 

 

Mr. Shaw the junior peeks out at the bottom of this picture. The editor was able to see
this young man in action on the track that very night. (he looked fast!)

 

 

A showcase full of neat memorabilia..

 

 

The original Giro helmet.. This was a prototype made by Jim Gentes, Giro's founder.

 

 

Lovely frames! Noteable unusual makes include Charles Roberts,
Rainbow 'Traut (an extinct Eisentraut model) & Holdsworth...

 

 

A stunning Dave Moulton bicycle.. Looks about like Terry Shaw's size too.. What a coincidence!

 

 

 

The very first Phil Wood bottom bracket!  Here mounting the rare TA "cottered" cranks
