Old Motorcycle Shops

Does anyone remember any old motorcycle shops in particular shops that sold Cushman Scooters and any Harley shops around the years 1960-1966. They would be listed in the old Houston Yellowpages but alas, I can’t find any. Thanks for any help.

There was an older thread here about motorcycle dealers, but I think most/all of the ones that were discussed postdated your 1960-66 timeframe:

Stubbs opened in 1965 but didn't initially sell Harleys. According to their website, they're the oldest motorcycle dealer in Houston (I assume they mean the oldest one that's still in operation):

My brother said there was an old Cushman Dealership to the east of downtown across the bayou. Close to where the old Peden Iron and Steel building was. I do know Sears sold Cushman scooters but only in red and white. My brother was trying to find the shop a friend got one that was blue and white. Thanks for trying. Much appreciated.

You might try contacting the Texas Cushman Club - they may well have someone with institutional knowledge of past dealers:
