If you are into old bikes, This show on March 3, 2018 at the drag strip, will be the one. Last year it had more old bicycles than I had seen in a bicycle museum. I picked up my Schwinn Deluxe there last year. Look forward to seeing everyone there!

Oh...that would NOT work at all! Besides, it’s the first ‘anniversary’ of her 49th birthday (a.k.a. 50). Gotta do something ‘big’, that’s not a swap meet...

I guess a Romantic 1/4 mile stroll down the dragstrip in a horse drawn carriage wouldn't work either ??;) ...... Hmmmmm........ and a "Cruise" in Commerce usually only involves a Hot Rod:39: .........
Dang..... I guess we'll just need to catch up in Charlotte on 2/03 or in Cleveland, TN on 3/24. Have a great time celebrating her 49 v.2 Birthday! Cheers! CCR Dave

Only 4 weeks away !!!
I spoke to quite a bunch of folks today, who I saw at the Hurricane Coasters Show & Swap meet earlier today..... and passed out flyers for this Swap Meet.
It sounds like a good number of folks from the Carolinas will be heading to Commerce, GA! That's GREAT news!
Mark your calendars! Hope to see YOU here on March 3rd! Cheers!! CCR Dave

Old Skool BMX Fans and Early Daze MTB/Klunkers Fans should be happy about this Post!!
I've been in contact over the last few days with calls or in-person conversations with a number of folks inquiring about coming to sell and/or coming to buy in these categories .......
I have CL ads in surrounding markets for this Pedal to the Metal Event. And from those ads I've been contacted by MOMBAT's Sam Archer who could possibly be bringing a truck and trailer down from Statesville, NC. The Musuem of Mountain Bikes is thinning out some excess Early MTB and other relics that don't quite fit into their Museum known as MOMBAT. I talked with the guys from Charlotte area's CYCO Inc. who specialize in Muscle Bikes and Old Skool BMX.
I met with Justin of Pork Chop BMX in Cartersville, GA today ..... and while it's doubtful they will set-up to sell .....they may make a trip to buy some Old Skool BMX goodies. The Western NC area along with Charlotte area seems to be coming on strong with the relatively easy 2 1/2 - 3hr trip to Commerce.
I've been getting a number of callers from those areas planning to be here.
My gut feeling is this Event should surpass the consistent 40+ Vintage Bike Vendors this March!
I know that TN and ALA and SC will be represented here, as well ....... I hope YOU are making plans to be here!
Plenty of Motels at exit # 149 at I-85 to stay just minutes away for the Very Early Sat morning start.
It's getting CLOSE! I feel the FUN in the air! ......... Cheers! CCR Dave ............(Picture Below taken at the March 2017 Event here)

If you are coming for the 1st time ....... please take a close look at this parking aerial map >>>
The 6AM early-bird Gate ($30.00) will have you approach from the Bottom-Right on this MAP

Area) and we will ALL be Set-Up on the Black-Top
Normally these 2 lanes (Double-Sided) accommodates about 40-50 Vendors (OVERFLOW will spill into "Lane 3")
PLEASE NOTE!! This early time of the Year for the Event means the PLUMBING at the Track has NOT been turned on yet (PORT-A-POTTYS will be here!)
There will be a FOOD & DRINK Kiosk at the FAR EAST location on the map >>>>
(on this MAP .... it would be at the BOTTOM-- not far from the EARLY-Bird 6AM entrance Gate)
See you HERE!! It's Gonna Be Great !! CCR Dave

Great Stuff !! I'm looking forward to meeting these folks for sure! Cheers! CCR Dave
