Since Howie Cohen's passing, no items are for sale.
This trip started with 5 of us; (1-2) Howie and Kay Cohen (Everything Bicycles), (3) Leona Cohen (our daughter), (4) Shirley Parrish (Howie`s aunt-eldest sister of Howie`s mother) and (5) Bina `Mama` Weiner (Mitchell Weiner`s mother who was born in Romania and later moved to Milan. Mitch Weiner was the founder and owner of Western States Imports of Centurion and Diamond Back fame). Howie`s grandfather was born in Romania so it was of interest to Howie & Shirley to obtain some information about our other ancestors from Romania. After Romania we went to Germany, Austria, and Italy for the bicycle business. Mama Weiner was a great help with her knowledge, experience, language and contacts while we traveled. My aunt Shirley, who was my closest aunt had a wonderful time as did our daughter Leona. Kay took Mama Weiner, Shirley & Leona to the airport in Milan so they could return to America and she & I stayed in Milan for the International Bicycle Show. I took the pictures so I am not included in them. This is a picture of Kay escorting Shirley & Leona to the Milan airport for their departure back to America. See the picture gallery.
