The next Vintage Cycle Club of Victoria swap meet is on for the 9th of April.

If you are chasing or selling old bikes or parts, this is the place to be.
As a buyer you can walk around the big car/motorbike swap meets forever or waste your life trawling eBay to find nothing. There's always plenty of goodies at VCC swap meets.

Location: The rear of Abbotsford Cycles, 27 Swan Street, Richmond.
Gates open for sellers only (no hustlers please!) at 8am, buyers from 9am to 12 noon.

Sellers - $10 fee.

Contact me if you are keen to be listed as a seller - barkmadly@netsopace.net.au. Places are limited however so get in quick.

A reminder flyer will follow soon.

Mark.

Luckily I didn't win an auction for a bike with a wonky head badge :cry: otherwise I would have had to bring some bikes to sell.
But hoping to come down and look for some bits.

A reminder that the VCC swap meet is on this Saturday at the rear of Abbotsford Cycles in Swan street Richmond from 9am.
There is a record amount of sellers with loads of bicycle stuff ranging from new old stock frame tubing to a book stall selling "Wheel Life – Cycling Recollections of the 1950s & 1960s" and everything in between.
Cheers, Mark.

Saturdays Swap Meet was epic with a record number of sellers and buyers. Some seriously good stuff and money changed hands.

Already there have been several enquires as to when the next one is.

So by popular demand, the next VCC swap meet is set for October the 8th. Same venue.

Get in early: let me know if you want to be a seller, tell your mates and spread the word.

Cheers, Mark.

The Wheel life book is a great read.
