    Getting a little nervous that this event is this Saturday and no one has posted anything about it for over a week! So who's going and what do I need to bring to sell?

    Lots of chatter on Facebook... about 50 bikes pre-registered... and I know of at least another 50 that will be there that aren't registered. Superskunk is playing 11AM-2PM with raffle prizes given away after every song. Louie's Cafe is our food vendor onsite and will have biscuits in the morning and sandwiches, snacks and drinks all day. Jeff Haney is confirmed as one of the judges for the BMX classes.

    Oh, and I paid for the porta-jons yesterday so there will also be facilities onsite :)

    Then your going to be suprised at the turn-out my friend. Your getting nervious there wont be enough people. I'm getting nervious we wont be able to fit anyone else in the lot :shock:

    I have been on the phone 24-7 with people thinking about coming. Like pork chop said, 50 pre-registered and another 50 more verbally committed to bring bikes :wink:

    Sounds great, I just have been getting all my feedback here, not Facebook, so it was sounding kinda quiet! I was unsure until the last day or two if I could make it so I looked here to see what kind of chatter was happening.
    So, Mr. Nickel, are you saying I should stay home to help with the crowd problem? :lol:

    No!!! You would be an honored guest! We need you and your bikes there to help with the vintage bike showing. Looks like 60% of the bikes will be BMX!

    Sounding pretty BMX heavy for a five hour drive. Nothing wrong with that, just not my thing in mass quantity.
    So, other than Porkchop and Double Nickel, who is going that is representing the vintage cruiser segment of the bike world? Please chime in quick! I really am torn about making this trip now!

    I'm not really understanding this logic. There are 14 categories to enter bikes in and only 5 of them are BMX specific. It seems like so many BMX bikes going to be there would mean you'd want to come out just to show everyone there are other kinds of bikes.... :)

    My good buddy, Scott ended up buying the tandem with trike kit! His God Daughter begged him into it and I took in his kids Rat Rod trike with the crazy ape hangers on trade! His Rat Rod Kiddo Trike is sitting on display in my living room! An awesome piece! Perhaps I will add a seat post a few inches higher and make it rideable. Michael

    The siren on your bike is just CRAZY! Tell your son, his chopper was a close second. It was great to meet you all.

    See ya next year!

    Cheers,
