Cupertino Bike Shop History
Check out what Vance just dug up - a serious relic! This is a price list from 1979. If you enjoy classic bikes and history, you might get a kick out of this.
Our shop opened in 1953 with Spence Wolf as the owner. We have records dating back to 1954 — at which time we could sell a high end Cinelli road bike, complete, for $67.50! My, how times have changed...
Next time you visit the Cupertino Bike Shop
for a tube, chain, or even a new bike, take some
time to examine the large collection of bicycle
memorabilia displayed between the bike parts.
The walls are covered in pins, signed photos
and jerseys, the shop’s original sign hangs
from the ceiling, and Greg Lemond’s first
professional racing bike hangs above the door.
Cupertino Bike Shop was opened in 1953, and started selling Gary Fisher mountain bikes in 1982. Today the shop carries mainly Specialized mountain bikes, as well as a large selection of road bikes, tandems, and bicycle parts and accessories.
Vance Sprock, the owner of the shop, is a road cyclist of some renown - Vance came third in the US National Road Championship (Junior Men) in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1976. Look out for Vance on his custom-made mountain bike if you ever ride the trails at Stevens Canyon or Fremont Older.
