I am desperately trying to go. I am going to bring my Cobaltos to try and sell and my Starfish crank to try and get a set of 172.5s in trade.

I think Aron already has a similar thread.

I may be going. I grew up in Allentown riding the Morning Call junior league and going to the Friday night races. I wish I still lived there.

I'll be there with "Nellie Belle" ( big blue van ) at 6:00am. I have about 17 C&V bikes. Some are
really cool.

Make sure you check out my handmade, and custom JB painted, Bill Stevenson. I have never
had or seen a frame quite this unique. It's truly a work of Art.

Bill Stevenson was the Chief designer for Ross Signature Series bikes, who spent a lot of time
in Japan and then worked for Fisher as head frame builder. He later opened his
shop in Washington and became a high-end boutique builder. His frames are unique and no two
are alike.

Between the frame and the custom fade paint on my bike, there is over $3800.00 invested (give or take)

Asking price ???? Hhmmm. a LOT less than what has been invested in it.


How about a beautiful Centurion with full Arabesque ?


Ohhh, last but not least, a STUNNING Ciocc, with pantographed Super Record. Ohhh la la.



Hope to see everyone there. Please introduce yourself so I connect a face with your screen name.



Johnnybee.

I'm loaded up and ready to go. I should be there by the time the sun comes up. I'll have some cool Raleigh stuff this year. A big black DL-1, A pair of Canadian Eaton Sports models, and a tall mens' Sports in a rare grey color.

I know their website says the gates open at 8:30am, but is it a good idea to show up before then or is it even worth it to get there early as a buyer? Missed out on the spring one so I'm not sure how it works.

I haven't left yet, but I packed my car last night. Rob, I think I have everything you need, several times over.

speedy25, since this is the biggest bike swap in the eastern US (or something like that, I think), we tend to assume that everyone who needs to know about it already does. And it's a bad assumption.

You may want to make the trip some time. It's twice a year, once in early October and once in May.

I am desperately trying to get out of the house.

I will have two bikes in tow, my Cobaltos, a Suicide FD, NOX Suntour Vx RD, Balilla brakes, Universal Mod 77s, and some Galli stuff

Understood on the careful part.

I have a list today that is thirteen items deep.

Might get to ride down to the coffee shop if I am lucky.......
