Your thoughts? Chicago bike show and Party?

Hey guys,

Some of you may know that the Winter Chicago Bike swap is being held at the Kane County fairgrounds in St. Charles IL. on February 13th 2022.
I know that is Super Bowl Sunday. I'll be busy that night so I was thinking about having a get together Saturday, the day/evening before at the Bike Garage where people can bring their favorite vintage road bike to show.

The idea is to get to know other forum members and have a little bike show as well.

I would provide a great meal and the venue in Naperville IL, Approx 25 minutes from the Bike swap location.

I'll have 37 or more choice bikes displayed plus whatever you guys bring.

I know some are just looking to get out and get their vintage bike "fix" before spring.

I know that many of you have a long drive to get here and of course many are way too far away.

Would you be willing to come? Please let know.

JJ.

Everyone is busy with Thanksgiving madness. Iím have a terrible time getting my Turkey in the oven. I order a farm fresh heritage bird and it looks a bit too fresh! Sounds fun is there Hearse parking at either venue? I need at least two spaces but it it sticks out 4 is better.

@jjhabbs

If I left right now and started riding, I might be able to get there in time.

Or you could send a car for me, one that can haul at least a dozen bikes.

Hope it turns out well, plenty of time and local enough folks, you should be golden by the time it gets here.
