A few years later...
Bray-Ali's flyingpigeon-la shop is closed and, somewhat predictably, his
attempt of entering L.A. politics didn't exactly take off, either.

Indeed, that looks considerably better than the

? It did "fly" in the end, didn't it?

And what about this: "He said that he and his
fiancée, Victoria, planned to open the city’s
first dedicated Flying Pigeon shop on Canal
Street in the fall."

You have dedicated shops for particular bikes?

I wonder if "tipo" is type in Italian? It would
be cool if "R" refered to Raleigh Roadster but
perhaps the Italians had similar looking bikes
even in the WW1 period?

Not really, no. I suspect that store never opened, and if it did, it
either failed fast, or became a real bike shop.

Certainly there are shops that specialize in brands and styles, but
very few that don't do everything.
