    How to show

    Richie or Robert, here's a great idea...if someone has a fork straightener how about they do a "how to" demonstration segment at the show?

    I'm being selfish bu,t my new Columbia has a bent fork and I need to straightened it. I'm sure others would benefit from the instruction. I know I would.

    Not that anyone will have time to do the instruction, seeing that so much will be going on.

    But, I'm willing to use my new favorite bike's damaged fork as the guinnea pig....just a suggestion. it just can't be during the vintage ride time slot.

    Is there a time set up for the ride yet?

    Also, Ozzy I think was talking about some are camping out, if so do you know where?

    I'll pay to have my fork straightened

    If the idea of a How to Demonstartion can't be arranged, if someone who is planning on attending and has a fork straightener, can you bring it and I'll pay you to straighten mine?

    Just reaching out here. Of course that means I'll have less money to buy stuff off of Richies and Tony's table of goodies.

    JD.......Tony is your man. He just got a fork straightener with the bunch he and Steve bought. I think it works with the fork on the bike, so bring the frame with it. Let him know to bring it, I'm sure he'll be happy to try it out on your bike :rolleyes:

    Forl straightner

    JD I will bring the fork straightner to the show you bring the bike and we will see what it does. I will practice on one of my bikes first and maybe Steve's too.
    Also JD will send you a PM with a picture of something I think you have been looking for fender W/plane reflector I have on a bike.

    Tony....help

    I just sent him a "help" requested PM.

    It would be a great demo, and I'm sure many would be grateful to see it. Busy show it will be hopefully.

    So whats the projection of the idea of camping in the parking lot?

    Camping

    Good News! There will be space available for camping either in the parking lot or inside the building. Both will be locked once everyone turns in for the night. We will have the facility open for campers on Friday evening at 6:00 pm.

    Well, this will be the first bike show that I bring a tent for. I left a tent joke out on purpose right here. You're welcome.

    A pair of lovely ladies

    Still considering going to this and grabbed a couple of nice prewar ladies bicycles to sell trade...
    A 40 roadmaster with swan fork and deluxe carrier and approximately the same age Colson "blister tank" as similar to the flying ace in design.
    Really nice original pint bikes that will look even better come show time.
    Steve, does the Mrs. like either of these for a potential trade?

    I was planning to go to the Eden swap meet since I am only about an hour away. Unfortunately I am double booked that weekend and have to attend a wedding. I was going to bring my Firebolt to sell. Here's a pic of it:

    Wow, alot has happened in the last week (2 weeks before the show).

    I received my FireArrow and have yet to put together but, planned on bringing for the fork straightening demo, and hell or high water it will be.
    Neice finished College and needed picking up.
    prepping for my son's graduation and our planned cruise in three weeks

    Then the worst of all things...my dad of 86 passed Sunday.
    Big shock and alot of travel this week for the funeral. Estate finalization to be done.
    I won't be back till mid week next week so I probably won't have my first resto done (Sabre Flyer).
    I really wanted to have that done.

    I am still going to be there but it might not be till Saturday morning.....It would have been cool to do the tailgate campout.

    Great job on letting everyone know of the show and all that you guys have done so far.
    Should be a great event and would'nt miss it for anything....well almost anything.

    John
