Maryland Swap Meet, 10 February

If anyone's missed the notification, the annual Stop, Swap and Save is going to be held on 10 February in Westminster, MD. Yeah, not Super Bowl Sunday this time. Poguemahone and I were talking about it this morning, which is what finally jogged my memory to put the listing up. Anyone here planning on going?

Sykerocker: Thanks for the heads up.
I scored enough NOS items last year to build up a very nice set of tubular wheels for my track bike.
I also got some nice winter gear, including primo Merino wool stuff!

It's a great way to get nice C&V stuff. I saw lots of Campy low flange record hubs in 32 and 36h.

Hi Everyone,

I'll be in Westminster with the better half. I have reserved a large vendor
spot. I will have : 2 really nice, original, 1960 Robin Hoods. ( very nice )
1980 Superba, RB, full campy w/Columbus Zeta frame(nice)
1983 Raleigh Olympian ( all original and nice )
1984 Bianchi RB classica. Mint. (unrestored)
1987 Nishiki Cascade MTB. Mint. (unrestored)
1995 Raleigh M-80 MTB (nice)
2002 Trek 820 Hybrid ( like new)
1998 Trek 730 MTB. ( nice )
1958 AMF Royalmaster balloon tire cruiser ( very nice original.)
1955 Huffy balloon tire cruiser (orig)

This is just a sampling of the bikes I have rehabed/restored in the last month. I'll
have at least 16 Vintage, Collectable, and other interesting bikes at the Swap Meet.
I'll also have a wonderful assortment of ephemera and misc parts from the Estate sale
I recently attended. I hope to see and meet as many of you who can make it.

I hope that this post is not inappropiate. If so, please feel free to place it in the proper
section.




Cheers,
JohnnyB.

I'm going to try to make it. Not planning on selling, just buying little stuff. No whole bikes or frames. I already have too many

Syke and Poguemahone,
I would love to head up there if I can catch a ride. Split the cost of gas.

We'll work something - I'm planning on taking the pickup. Between the bed rack and the hitch rack, I can truck back seven complete bikes, properly trussed up.
