    here are a few more photos of today's swap. Lots of Cabers there. IMG_2206.JPG The unknown Caber came up from Indiana, and I got to meet Mike [Maskado]. Lots of old iron there. I did not want to buy any more bikes but I love lost causes. Couldn't resist this 37 ? Colson for 90 bucks. IMG_2210.JPG Got the original fenders for it too. It's already on the stand...... Thinking "black paint-job". IMG_2228.JPG IMG_2229.JPG Seen a nice boy's Shelby,[ not pictured] go for 75. The badge alone was worth 35. The buy of the day, I think, was this Hawthorne.Funky modern stand??? IMG_2224.JPG Original flat braces and scalloped guard, for a hundred bucks. Can't beat that for a solid pre-war original riding bike. Seen a couple bikes I sold in past years, including this Monark Super Deluxe, that had all it's paint stripped off it, and was clear coated. IMG_2211.JPG Not my cup of tea.... but it's different and still is a nice bike.
    IMG_2207.JPG IMG_2208.JPG Another nice Colson, black bike below, in middle I'm guessing 1940 Asking price $150 Good wheels, nice Colson lucky 7, nice guard and chain ring and solid frame with badge..ridable as is..... almost brought that home!Great pre-war bike.

    No one knows the Uknown Caber. The Unknown Caber... He's everywhere, he's everywhere!

    yea, I guess if he was known, then he very well couldn't be unknown....
