13th Annual Larz Anderson National Bicycle Show and Swap: Brookline, MA

In its heyday, this show was huge and drew a crowd from all over the Northeast. One of its biggest draws was a giant Swap Meet.
Then the swap meet was removed from the show and attendance dropped.
Well, this year the swap meet is back and wed like to see the annual Larz show return to its former glory!

It is a great take if you area a fan of vintage bikes. I got to ride a High Wheeler last time I went. I did see on display the twin of my Raleigh Pro but inexplicably, it was labelled, "vintage". I bought it new in 1980, far from being considered old.

If you haven't been there, there is a great, small museum packed with a range of old touring and race cars.
