Lil Bill’s bike shop has been a staple of the USC community for over four decades. Owner Aaron “Lil Bill” Flournoy inherited the business from his father, the original Bill. The shop began as a brick and mortar establishment located in the parking lot of the United University Church. For decades, the shop was a staple in the community where Flournoy provided students and community members with quality bike maintenance services at affordable prices.
In 2016, Flournoy’s business was devastated when USC purchased the United University Church property with the intention to demolish it to build the USC Village. Adding insult to injury, USC signed a non-compete clause with another bike shop that denied Lil Bill’s the chance to ever have a spot in the newly constructed village.
However, Lil Bill’s found ways to be resilient. Today, Lil Bill’s is a fully mobile bike service, whenever and wherever you need assistance in the Los Angeles area. After all these years, Lil BIll’s is still delivering quality and affordable services with a friendly neighborhood feel.
