Bike swap meet near Toledo, Ohio!!!
I wasn't sure, this could've went into either Single/Fixed, or Classic/Vintage, so I put it in General.
Anyway, Memory Lane Classics ( www.memorylane-classics.com
) is having one of their three yearly swap meets on the 23rd and 24th of this month, hours are general swap meet hours, really really early in the morning, to afternoonish. It's worth a drive if you live in the Tri-state area. It's alot of old Schwinns (MLC is a classic Schwinn dealer/huge warehouse of any old bike part you want (cruisers...)), Stingrays and such, but with any swap meet, there's always cool, wierd stuff. Just bikes. Grand Rapids is an awesome place, too. (well, awesome village).
I look really really forward to this every year. Like I said, they hold three swap meets, in April, August, and October, but April is arguably the best, as everyone's had cabin fever for a while.
At the very least, you'll meet other bike nuts and (romantic sigh) stroll along the river and stop at the local pizza joint.
