Most shops sell more than one brand of an item.
And 'sale' is usually taken to be a special event where prices are lower.
secondhand is already in the wiki
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:second_hand ... status= approved
.. so you would assume it has been discussed here and voted on. Around
safety_inspection= ... see wiki amenity= vehicle_inspection
oldtimer refers to older things.. usually no longer sold 'new' but
either 'restored', 'used' etc. Example; vintage and veteran cars.
Presently bicycle shops have a dedicated tagging scheme... are all shops
to have there own individual and incompatible scheme? Or can we have ONE
common scheme? Please?
I would prefer
sells:motorcycle:tyres:yes !NOTE UK ENGLISH!
Repair, maintain and service .. can all mean the same thing!!!! These
can be a separate area.. a 'workshop' with a separate entry and
