Does anyone remember Art's Cycle Shop in Markleysburg? What was Art's last name? I used to buy parts for my Triumph Bonneville from Art. I rode up all the way from Morgantown.

Changing the subject....but does anybody remember a gang rape that happened in Markleysburg about 45 years ago. Happened in the Olinzock house by the bar. I know Butch Myers was there but does anybody else know anything. There were like 15 guys there, some from Confluence.

"wonderer" said Burnworth and you said Savage for Art's last name, but neither of those names rings a bell. I believe I came up Bruceton Road, turned left onto Main Street (281) and traveled about 1/4 mile to his shop on the left. It's been 35 years since I was there. Kinda rough to remember.

It was Art Burnworth. Beside Marclay school grew up beside him.

Thanks, Bean! Ole Art was a slow moving, easy going kind of guy that didn't say much. As I recall from my last visit there, his boy was going to take over the business, but apparently that didn't work.

I sort of believe his son, Jack, either took it over or started a shop of his own.

His son Jack never took over. Art got old and sold the place.
