    First annual bicycle swap meet and show at the famous Ace Speedway in Altamahaw NC on Saturday, October 21st! $10.00 per seller to set up. Starts at 9:00 AM and it will be finishing up at 3:00 PM. We will setting up in the infield of the track. Plenty of space. Bring your own table if you need one. No cost for those showing their vintage bike. Those in attendance that are selling or showing will be able to ride your vintage bicycle around the famous 4/10 oval! Unlimited rides throughout the entire day. Bike show will have awards for the top 10. This is a bicycle show. Mini bikes are welcome but no motors to be started during the event. Plenty of parking for everyone. Concession booth is a possibility, looking to get an idea on how many are planning to attend. The track is about 2 hours from Charlotte, a little over an hour from Raleigh.
    Track address is 3401 Altamahaw Race Track Road, Elon NC 27244
    I know that this show is a little last minute, but we should have a great time riding around the track if nothing else! 7c9f4b8e9e7e411b7594c26e419663d1.jpg 6cb471612084af8d08696d3568734873.jpg d211f81b02a63ce64200fb312a07cfca.jpg aeabb5aa79e8c01c60a27a676794c2f7.jpg

    I am trying to get an idea on how many will be attending. I am in the process of securing concessions for the day of the show. The owners of the track have been kind enough to work with me and are trying to get an idea of what to buy. I hope a lot of you can attend! Thanks again!

    I plan on bringing several to show, but nothing to sell. Bringing at least 1 friend and a couple of his bikes. How much I bring depends on if my truck sells. If it does, then I bring whatever fits in a VW bus (guessing 3, unless I find a decent bike rack). If not, then I'll bring probably 5 or 6 in the truck.

    Absolutely! Customs, rats, vintage BMX, or whatever you like, bring it to the show! Especially kids with their bikes. I want to make sure we are growing the hobby. I am looking forward to seeing everyone!

    Good idea Dave. Except ReTodd would lay frame dragging around the track claiming I had an unfair advantage.

    Dave, a race would never happen because that would require Sprockets to actually ride his bike:cool:

    ReTodd, you are the designated photographer (if you actually go) cause you no I got no skills.
