In the shop with Tony Pereira

[Tony Pereira in his
shop in SE Portland.]

Tony Pereira of Pereira Cycles is looking for a new place to ply his trade.

Tony is currently based in a small shop just south of Hawthorne Blvd. on SE 9th Avenue. He’s having trouble finding the right spot so he’s hoping someone in the community might have some leads. Here’s more on what he’s looking for:

“I’m in need of a new frame shop for Dec. 1st. Looking for about 300 sq ft., with 220v power, natural light and good ventilation. Of course, the cheaper, the better–hopefully something in the $200/month range. I’m more than willing to share with the right person, in fact I’d prefer a share since it helps defray costs for all. My current shop is in the SE industrial area and I live nearby, so that’s where I’d like to stay, but the right space might convince me to travel further. I work full-time+, so 24 hour access is important.”

If anyone out there has some leads on some good, cheap shop space, please contact Tony at tony[at]pereiracycles[dot]com.

[Note: I recently visited Tony’s shop so stay tuned for more photos and my new “In the shop with….” series.]

    “In the shop series” sounds cool. If you’d like to interview a happy owner of a new Ira Ryan let me know.

    Follow up from Tony:
    I found a great space on SE Belmont around 24th as a direct result of this column. Look for an open house announcement in coming months once the dust has settled. It’s gonna be sweet.

    Thanks Jonathan!
