Any Cape or Northeast forumites want to have a swap meet?

I've got 3 egg crates full of parts I don't want in my garage! Would love to swap them into a cheap bike or nice set of wheels or new tires. Lots of good parts to use for flips or personal builds. Anyone else interested in meeting up with a pile of goods?

A little big for me so I'll pass but bring them to the swap if we have it. I'd also be interested in a trimmed Brooks Pro.

I might be interested in a swap meet with no prior commitment to swap or purchase anything. Trouble is, I don't have too many things to give up and don't need much that much stuff that I know of. Of course if I see something I might realize I need it.

Time is short at the moment. Or to put it more accurately, scheduling opportunities are tight. You got any plans nailed down?

I live in the area Harlan, but, similar situation as Jim's. Don't have anything to trade and don't really need anything. Always interested in minty Nuovo Record parts, however.

I'm with Jim and Rootboy, at least we should think and plan a spring ride. I'll be back on the Cape by the end of May. We could do a swap meet right in the parking lot at the CCRT!

Sounds great to me! I'll have my build done by then so the gf and I can both roll on vintage bikes.

Also I got organized in my new garage and found that all my spare parts fit in one milk crate (thank god!) though all the bars are jumping out. I now have a heated shop with pegboard and shelf space for parts. Coming from no shop to this, I'm sooo happy.

All I need now is a city bike rack to line up all the bikes instead of leaning them on the wall.

I like the idea of a swap meet before a CCRT ride. Early May?

Harlan, I see an interesting-looking tandem there. Maybe not C&V though.

I never need an excuse for a CCRT ride. Patriot's Day, Early May, Memorial Day, whenever. I just need two weeks notice. AND I could bring a truckload of untouched project bikes, several buckets of parts, and a few wheelsets. Nothing sexy, but lots of useful.

Harlan, you're WAY too organized! And ceiling hooks are the answer to bike storage.

Maybe we can get a lot of wool jerseys going as well like, L'Eroica. It will be the Cape Cod version.

i could be in... piles of parts and bikes to sell and trade.

Also, There will be a winter swap in Dudley MA in a heated (more or less) factory building alongside the Dudley-Do-Right Flea Market, usually happens around Valentines Day. Not much for Lightweight stuff generally, but if we all converge on it, it could be a good meet! Mike has them 3 or 4 times a year, so it would be great to get more C&V stuff represented there. I'll have some relly good stuff there.

Not yet, we'll look ahead a few weeks to see if we can catch a warmish one to open the houses up. And for this ride I don't need to stay down for the weekend, I can go back and forth no problem. So they're all good.

I also don't really have anything for a swap meet, but might be up for a ride.
For better or worse, all my cycling togs started off in a chemical plant, though.

No matter, it's really about getting the fresh air.

We'd surely be up for a CCRT ride, time permitting. Scott, it's about time you got to see that tandem in person.

Never crashed on the trail but one of the parking lots was a little dodgy......

I agree, that went to the best home possible. Ever think of getting Peugeot decals for that?
