I'm hoping to find an 80s Italian or English bike this year. Would the Seattle Swap be a place to shop for older bikes without having to pay astronomical prices? I've missed the Swap in past years and have no idea of what to expect.
The 84 Centurion and 84 Peugeot need foreign friends.

I've been the past two years -- I have not seen a lot of classic 80's bikes there. Mainly newer bikes, lots of components, and lots of new closeout type of merchandise from bike shops. Some good and interesting deals, but not so many classic bikes.
I'm going to go. I'm hoping to come away with a nice(ish) set of 36 hole wheels for my LHT and some friction bar end shifters. Maybe a new set of mtn clipless shoes as well. I'm setting the bar and my budget pretty low.
Three of us from Ellensburg coming over. I'm looking for a frameset (preferrably 80's) for some Campy Super Record components I have, a couple of saddles and miscellaneous components. Hopefully the weather will be as nice as last year.
