I'm trying to remember a book I read in the late 1970s. It was about a boy who goes to this wild old man's shop and buys a device (I remember it being kind of like a transistor radio). When he uses the device as he's walking along he unexpectedly shifts into a parallel universe. I seem to remember something about lizard people and perhaps motorcycles, but I could be wrong about that. Any thoughts?
