I spoke with Lisa today and Memory Lane has sold the building and needs to be out by sometime in March. They are hoping to find somebody to buy everything in the building, so we'll see where that goes.

With that said, Lisa said the meet will still go on at the current location. She is unsure what else will happen after the fact, but said her and Harv were committed to make the meet happen.

I wish them well and want to thank them (and Larry posthumously) for all the years of friendship and community services that they have provided to our hobby for many many years.

Feel free to call the store and get your orders in....or what the heck, buy everything!

The old place was great!
Staying at the Hindu Hilton, walking over to the meet!
The new place and the monsoon rain storms and vehicles sinking into the field!
The only thing permanent in life is change and ML going away will change this hobby.
Saddle up your ponies, boys, if you have never come to spring ML, you need to do this year!

I always enjoyed my visits there being only a little over an hour away. The swap meets were always the best.

Wow, that was the very first place I bought any parts of any kind! I didn't even know there was a bike hobby or that I had any interest in bikes at all! I was simply happy that I found a one stop shop so I could finish restoring an old bike for my kid! I knew nothing...found them on the net, called them and asked a ton of questions. Got my order in about a week and the rest is history! Sad indeed......

This is my fault for sure! When I saw RUDY CONTRATTI's post on the attached thread, figuring that I may never get the chance again if they ever closed their doors for some reason, I immediately ordered some Colson decals a couple of days ago, not even realizing that they actually would be going out of business. My girlfriend often accuses me of jinxing things by merely thinking a thought, now I suppose this confirms it. My apologies to everyone, but especially to Memory Lane Classics.:cry:

I also have talked to Lisa today. Only the building was sold. Not the business! Memory Lane Classic must move out of the building only. One door closes and hopefully another door will open shortly.

Their Spring swap meet will be at the Grand Rapids location as usual. Ann Arbor is Sunday April 29, 2018
