Currey's Bicycle Shop
Currey's Bicycle Shop was another Charleston Icon that no one of the era will ever forget. The
shop was situated at 1105 West Washington Street for the time period that most of us remember.
But the shop started out in several locations, including Central Ave near the RR bridge.
Nobody had the selection that Currey had. It was the ULTIMATE bicycle shop of it's day.
Here's Bill. Notice the new "Sting Ray" bikes, one of Schwinns most successful bicycles. I owned one myself.

This is me on my Schwinn Corvette purchased at Currey's around 1958. Photo taken in the City Park.
Can you believe this bike had stainless steel fenders? It was THE best bike in the world to me.
