Oh man! That is one of the best shop pics I have ever seen. I can't even begin to think where I'd start!
Ok the White Proline then...

man I remember the first time I went in that bike shop. it was like a museum.

my DG came out of that same bike shop in 79, and many parts came from there throughout the years as well. I would mow lawns in the summer during the day and by the weekend I'd talk my dad into driving me there to buy anything. even if I didn't buy anything it was awesome for a 10 year old kid to just walk through there.

good stuff!

We made many treks to the Gallery from Lake Oswego. The feeling I got walking into the Gallery was like XTC. Thanks Ben

He must have liked selling Suzuki's. There are 5 completes in that second pick and I see a frame hanging in the first one.

My favorite things from Ben's photos:

Photo #2: That R&R Hack is sitting in my garage right now :-) My kids still take it out and ride it around. Funny thing is it still has the MX-60 and the original tire on it. In the 26 years we have had it, I don't think we have ever had a flat on it. I remember buying a Purple Tuf Neck from Jay's late sister Paula after seeing that one on the Hack Bike. I specifically remember Paula explaining the 1-3-4-2 sequence of top cap tightening.

Photo #3: Lisa's #139 (and her brother Travis') race bikes sitting there. Modified early DGs with the gussets cut out.

Photo #5: That Baby Blue BD-III is still in my Mother's attic according to my younger brother.

Love those old shots.

Cheez, Bike Gallery bought out Suzuki's stock when they (Suzuki) bailed on the BMX market.
