New shop in Southeast brings cool to the community

There’s a new bike shop in Southeast Portland called Atomic Sprockets. They’re nestled in an old building at 627 SE Morrison (between 6th and 7th).

They’ve got a fun mix of new and vintage cruisers including bikes from classic brands like Schwinn, Monarch, Hawthorne, JC Higgins, and Western Flyer and new cruisers from Nirve, Manhattan, Dyno and Schwinn. They also do custom bikes, restoration, bike motors, painting and repair.

Their clothing, for “Bettys and Johnnys,” exudes that ’50s-era cool that is more Elvis rock-star than coffee-shop hipster.

A few people have tipped me off about it recently and I peeked in the window before they opened this morning. I didn’t have a camera but rest assured, it looks like an extremely cool shop. I plan on stopping by with my camera for the full scoop in the next few days.

Get on over their and check them out.

Just dropped off an fresh infusion of vintage Schwinn cruisers yesterday at Atomic. Word to the wise.
