That reminds me of an amazing old place called 'The Hub' on Berry Street in town. Two shops - one a great little bike shop, with the other turned into a cafe with all the furniture commisioned by artists and made from old bike bits! Had a penny farthing which rolled across an opening that separated the two untis so that they could shut the shop off at night but keep the cafe open. Was an amazing place with open mic nights and great, great veggie food! Sold 5 or so years back and now a trendy wine bar...
All the radiators were made from handlebars, and it recycled all it's own water, had solar collectors, the works. Very sadly missed - the owner used to ride in everyday from Southport which is a bit of a trek too...
I was in there once... I thought it was great.
