I'll be there selling some goodies, are you the Mark I rang to reserve a spot?

Well I would like to go to this but the Sydney show is the week after this event and is all too close together. I am new to this and really only been interested in the last 12 months and enjoyed following the bikes and events.

From what I can see there is not a lot of events so having people attend I think would be a great for the bikes and networking for the followers. With this forum and I would think most people would try to attending some or all of these events.
It would be good to have a calendar produced so as to ensure there is time between events so people can arrange themselves to attend if they wish. People travelling interstate actually turn the travel in to a holiday this
would keep the better half happy. I know this works as I travelled to Noosa for the STRADE BIANCHE last year for the the ride plus stayed around and enjoyed the coast during the last of the winter months

Like I stated earlier I am new to this so I may over stepping the mark.

In the same breath I wish I could attend as an interstate visitor and hope you have a great event.

I also live a holiday away from the major centres on the east coast.
Advance notice is a good idea.

My wife got suspicious when I loaded the bike onto the back seat when we headed to Wollongong last March for the Sydney bike show.
last month the back seat was empty on the way over, but came back with a new project.
And she has seen this
let me help you prepare your ebay advert, ask me how

Does anyone know the fellows (one with an Amy Gillett top) who had the NOS Dura Ace stuff in buckets? I only noticed them when I'd already run out of cash.
They seem to be in the industry ?

That was the guy who drove down from Grafton. He was wearing the blue top.

He did indeed have lots of nice stuff there. He's on one of the retro bike facebook pages I think he said.

The Vintage Cycle Club of Victoria is holding its bi-annual swap meet is on for Saturday 26th, 9am to 12noon - at the rear of Abbotsford Cycles in Swan Street Richmond.

If it's half as good as previous meets it will be huge! Personally I have loads of goodies that need re-homing.

If you're keen to sell, drop me a line and I will reserve you a spot. Be quick though as places are filling fast.

Of course hordes of buyers are very welcome too. These swap meets have become a great social event and an tremendous opportunity to find rare vintage bikes and parts.
