Thank you Shawn @Freqman1 for the great array of pictures! I will add a few more pictures tomorrow as well ... and Shawn there was at least a couple other CABE'r to add to your list of participants above : @wnc rider came down from Asheville, NC to join us AND @onecatahula (Pete) and "Buddy" . And we had some additional good company (non forum members), like Jeff Lohmueller from Atlanta, Brian & Katherine from Charlotte,NC ... Thomas from Atlanta, Justin from Ellijay, GA and Randy from Madison, GA ... and Keith from Smyrna, TN were a few I know for sure. All-in-all I believe there was about 25 Vintage Bike vendors. A little lighter than normal, I would say. We DID have about 6 (or so) vendors that were "1st timers" here today. BUT some regulars we have been getting didn't make it, unfortunately.
The money changing hands was described by a number of folks I talked to as "fair" ...
It is a big challenge to increase the number of the "Buying Public" ... I advertised here on the CABE, and on RRB, on Craigslist, and Facebook (along with @Sprockets and @Toysoldier ) and Brad the promoter of the NE GA Swap Meet with thousands of "followers" on Facebook.
I would say that 90% of the buying & selling was between the vendors ... the biggest challenge is to turn up the buying volume with the "public" ... the folks coming thru the ticket counter at the main entrance.
Next up >>> the Very Popular "Get-A-Grip" Show & Swap Meet in JUST 3 weeks (March 28th) !!
The Fall "Pedal-to-the-Metal" will be in OCT ... (I believe the 10th ... but I will update this date as we get closer)
Thank you once again for a Great Number of CABE'rs who came out this morning! Cheers! CCR Dave

Hey Mike! It was great seeing you and Mason there! Mason was tearing up the asphalt on his 24" Schwinn FLEET !! He was having a Blast :p

Remember the NEXT Pedal-to-the-Metal is OCTOBER 10th 2020 .... BUT I will see you even sooner than that at Get-A-Grip in just 2 weeks!!!

I saw some of your collection on display at NorthStar Bicycle today ... AND ... they were hard at work on your Vintage rear-steer Tandem!!

THAT will be a Cool Ride with the Historic Signage on it .... Cheers! Dave
